Scots cardinal attacks abortion 'massacres'

According to the leader of Scotland's Roman Catholics, Cardinal Keith O'Brien, politicians who support the 'massacre' of innocents (aka abortion) should consider their position carefully before taking holy communion.
He denied wanting pro-choice Catholic politicians thrown out of the church, but said they "must consider their consciences and whether or not they can approach the altar to receive holy communion...

Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, leader of Catholics in England and Wales, rallied to the cardinal's defence. He said: "The Catholic Church believes that every life has been created by God in his own image and likeness. "This means that all life is sacred, with value and meaning at every stage and in every condition, from the moment of conception."
What's that you say? Massacres? Innocent children slaughtered? Every life sacred? Perhaps Tony Blair should reconsider his plans for after he leaves No. 10. On the other hand, he has never shown any sign of being troubled by a conscience.

Dominus Vobiscum.
