TORONTO, December 12, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Catholic priests who headed up the Pope’s World Youth Day in Toronto addressed the abortion issue at the Reaching Minds Through Media gala pro-life fundraising dinner in Toronto last month..  Father Thomas Rosica stated that among crimes which offend human dignity “we can say in a very significant way that abortion represents the worst of these things.”  Rosica, a Scripture scholar and current CEO of a new Catholic television venture called Salt and Light Television, stated in full:  “Whatever violates the dignity of the human person such as mutilation, torments inflicted on the body or mind, attempts to coerce the will itself; whatever insults human dignity such as subhuman living conditions, arbitrary imprisonment, deportation, slavery, prostitution, the sex trade, selling of woman and children, disgraceful working conditions. All of these things poison human society.  And we can say in a very significant way that abortion represents the worst of these things.  See the website for Salt and Light Television:  https://www.saltandlighttv.org
