"Time to take a different path"

Sunday, October 28, 2007
Recently, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Abortion Act, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor and Cardinal Keith O'Brien wrote an open letter on behalf of the bishops of England, Wales and Scotland. They said:

"The Catholic faith lets us see the radiant glory of human life from its beginning to its end. When we know that every person whatever their age, race or condition carries the image of God, we see their infinite value and dignity. Whether we have this vision of faith or not, cherishing life is the central value of every society that wants to flourish.

The Catholic Church offers to participate with others in working for this timely change of heart and mind. We hope and pray for the sake of our common humanity, and the lives at stake, that the next 40 years will tell a very different story. The time to take a different path is now."
On Saturday 27 October, the Oxford University Pro-life Society organized a peaceful act of witness on Oxford's busiest shopping street to raise awareness about the tragedy of abortion in our society and to encourage people to re-examine the issues. They were joined by six Dominican students. Below are some photos from this occasion:
