MEXICO CITY, Mexico, Aug. 17 ( – Inaugurating a new section of a Catholic hospital,  Mexican Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez urged doctors to defend and respect life.

Unlike the often toothless pronouncements by most western bishops that has led to major compromising of pro-life Catholic health care in the west, the Mexican Cardinal laid it on the line. EWTN news reports that he stated that “in any place abortion is regarded as an attack, but here in this institution it is a profanation. Doctors that don’t agree are free to leave.”
