Point taken

The interesting and informative opinion piece by Fr Geoffrey Attard, entitled ‘The “Christian-right” is lost’ (January 5), made me reflect harder on the abortion and euthanasia issue.

If, as he rightly puts it, “abortion and, perhaps, even euthanasia are just around the corner on the agenda of our political stage,” now is the time that those who claim to be Christians, whatever their roles in society, primarily our politicians, should stand up and be counted. Now is the time to give witness, once more, for their Christian faith or the human values they believe in.

If, as Pope Francis said, abortion is wrong “because there is a human life there and it is not licit to eliminate a human life to resolve a problem” and euthanasia is wrong because it is “as sin against God the Creator”, since it implies a killing, then how can I be a Christian politician or a politician who strongly believes in human dignity and decide to vote in favour of abortion and euthanasia legislation?
