An important statement by His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia on abortion

On the occasion of the debate that has been taking place in recent days about abortion, especially after the recent decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia made the following statement through his personal Instagram account (Archbishop Makarios):

All of you who are reading this message, at this present moment, should thank God that whilst your mother was pregnant, she did not only consider her own rights. She thought of her obligation and maternal responsibility which allowed for her to keep the child in her womb, giving this child the chance to be born.

 Your mother fulfilled her duty.

 When a woman kills the embryo, she is not fulfilling her duty as a mother. She may claim this to be her own right but at the same time she revokes the right of life for the embryo. May God pity us… May God enlighten us…”
