Priests less liberal than public on abortion

While only six percent of the population say they oppose the current law allowing women the right to an abortion until 12 weeks of a pregnancy, 25 percent of the nation’s priests oppose the law. A YouGov poll showed that one out of every eight priests – 13 percent – believe that abortion should not be allowed under any circumstances. Only two percent of the general public polled agreed with that view.  Over half of the priests surveyed said that while abortion was “an ethical problem”, an outright ban on the practice would create even greater problems. – Kristeligt Dagblad
