Report: Dominican Catholics rally against legal abortion

November 1, 2007

From Catholic World News:

Santo Domingo, Oct. 31, 2007 (FIDES/CWNews.com) – Hundreds of Catholics braved pouring rain to take part in a pro-life march organized by the Catholic Church in the Dominican Republic as part of a Campaign against a proposal to de-criminalize abortion, the Fides news service reports.

The participants, representing about 204 parishes and more than 100 schools, were led by Cardinal Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez of Santo Domingo and auxiliary Bishop Pablo Cedano. The marchers walked through the city centre to the National Congress where the cardinal presided at Mass. Many of those present were children, adolescents and young people.
