STATEMENT OF CARDINAL EGAN ON PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION BAN
April 18, 2007
"Like all persons of goodwill who respect the right of the innocent never to have their life taken from them unjustly, I rejoice in the decision of the Supreme Court. It is and has always been unthinkable that a civilized nation would approve thrusting a pointed object into the head of a child leaving its mother's womb so as to suck out its brain and kill it. Hopefully we are making a small step towards sanity and basic decency in this beloved nation of ours."
