Archbishop Gervais condemns abortion.
Chretien had said, "Canadians do not want a right-wing party in this country. They do not want a party that does not support a woman's right to choose." The Archbishop deplored the Prime Minister's pro-abortion stance, saying that he had written him about it but had not heard back from him.
To our knowledge, this is the first time that a Canadian bishop has publicly criticized a prime minister by name, for his pro-abortion position. Catholic Insight has done so many times.
