Archbishop Paglia Whitewashes Abortion Apologists

Vatican Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, has tried to justify the nomination of abortion apologists to the Academy. One of them is the Anglican parson Nigel Biggar.

Paglia reveals that Biggar was proposed by Justin Welby, the Anglican archbishop of Canterbury, who was asked "to propose a representative of his". Paglia attempts to play down Biggar's position by saying that he has never supported abortion in print and does not intend to do so in the near future.

Further, Paglia did not comment on the appointment of the Israeli Rabbi Avraham Steinberg, who defends abortion, in-vitro fertilization and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis.
