Rowan Williams on Abortion

On Palm Sunday, a column by the Archbishop of Canterbury on abortion ran in the Sunday Times.

It’s a thoughtful column. And the Archbishop expresses discomfort with the U.K.’s abortion laws (which are not as liberal as U.S. laws if memory serves me right).

He begins by stating, “For a large majority of Christians — not only Roman Catholics, and including this writer — it is impossible to regard abortion as anything other than the deliberate termination of a human life.”

I wonder if ++Rowan chose Palm Sunday as the day the column would run. If so, I’m encouraged that he would give this issue such emphasis.

A hat tip to the Archbishop.
