Rome, Aug 21, 2007 / 10:44 am (CNA).- "We cannot ever destroy life, we must always save life even if it is the fruit of violence," exclaimed Cardinal Bertone in an exclusive interview with Vatican Radio about Amnesty International's new abortion policy.
The human rights organization recently decided to change its policy from a position of neutrality to one that supports abortion, but did so without consulting its members.
However, this past week the organization�s delegates overwhelmingly approved the new policy at their meeting in Mexico City. The new protocol calls for abortion to be made available in the case of rape and requires the organization to push for the legalization of abortion in countries where it is currently outlawed.
