Politicians should repent for their abortion stance - bishop

A bishop has criticised Catholic politicians who publicly campaigned for the repeal of the Eighth Amendment for political reasons or "for their own personal advancement".

Bishop of Elphin Dr Kevin Doran said they should repent for promoting “the taking of innocent human life”.

In his homily for New Year’s Day delivered at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Sligo yesterday, he said such politicians had “chosen a position which is clearly out of communion with the Church”.
