Chile's bishops lament lifting of abortion ban
The Tidings

The new law would permit abortion in the cases of rape, endangerment of a motherâs life, or in cases when the fetus has a life-threatening birth defect. It would allow for objecting doctors to refuse to perform abortions, except in cases when the motherâs life is in danger and there are no other available physicians.The legislation has drawn harsh criticism after a year's-long heated debate from many in the majority-Catholic country, including many of the countryâs bishops who have expressed their dismay at the lifting of the ban.Bishop Fernando Chomali of Concepción told CNA he âdeeply regrettedâ that the law had thus far been approved, noting that it wouldnât help women in need and that it goes against the countryâs constitution."I deeply regret that the bill has been approved.
