Vatican II’s Definition of Church Makes Sense

Cardinal Dolan Gets Canon Law Wrong on Abortion

Monica Migliorino Miller
 

“Ghoulish, grisly, gruesome.” These are the strong words used by Cardinal Timothy Dolan to describe the Reproductive Health Act signed on January 22 by Catholic governor of New York Andrew Cuomo that, with a broad definition of heath, permits abortion through the ninth month of pregnancy.
