Reflections
"Public representatives will be asked to decide whether a caring and compassionate society is defined by providing the best possible care and protection to a woman struggling to cope with an unwanted pregnancy or by the deliberate destruction of another human life. … I hope that everyone who believes that the right to life is fundamental will make their voice heard in a reasonable, but forthright, way to their representatives, reminding them that the right to life is conferred on human beings not by the powerful ones of this world but by the creator. … There is no more important value than upholding the right to life in all circumstances."

— Northern Ireland's Cardinal Sean Brady, as the government pledges to introduce abortion legislation in 2013.
