Cardinal Ouellet attacked for being pro-life

Montreal's La Presse newspaper is being called on by the Catholic Civil Rights League to distance itself from the venom spewed by columnist Patrick Lagace in his column about Quebec Cardinal Marc Ouellet. On Tuesday Lagace wrote that he hoped Cardinal
Ouellet, archbishop of Quebec and Catholic Primate of Canada, would “die a slow and painful death” for his recent remarks about abortion. What exactly did Cardinal Ouellet say? Nothing that can't be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Addressing a pro-life rally last week, he affirmed Church teaching that life begins at conception and that abortion is wrong even in cases of rape. Federal and provincial politicians have denounced the cardinal, and Lagace called him an extremist. For a more rational perspective, visit The National Post's religious blog The Holy Post.
