Portugal Legalizes Abortion

Portugal's Parliament has just voted and liberalized the abortion law: now "the new law will set no restrictions on women seeking to end their pregnancies up until the 10th week, though it does require a mandatory three-day reflection period before an abortion will be performed" (Christian Post)

I didn't hear that this already took place. My heart weeps for the unborn children that will never be born, for those lives which will end only too soon, and for those left behind. Continue to pray for and end to abortion and for the repentance and healing of all who have committed this sin! Lord deliver us from all evil and forgive us for the sins we have committed against You!

Only Ireland, Malta, and Poland remain in Europe standing against abortion.

Lord, have mercy on us!

Santa Maria, ora pro nobis!

We must pray for a turning of the tide indeed! Praise be to God for these few Catholic countries that have remained faitful! God Bless!

PS~ I think you meant to write "Sancta" vrs. "Santa" which is Spanish. That's OK! I just learned the Hail Mary in Spanish and keep confusing it with the Latin Version!

It was so tragic to hear this news.

Yes, in Spanish it would be Santa Maria, ruega por nosotros. Pretty close to the Latin though.

Oh, I'm so sad to hear this.
