Shame should include abortion

Madam -- I feel ashamed as a Catholic priest for the devastating pain suffered by innocent young people because of the unpardonable failures of my Church to stand up to the crime of paedophilia as detailed in the recent BBC documentary The Shame of the Catholic Church.

We should all feel ashamed for doing nothing to counteract any crime of wrongdoing. That shame should extend to the practice of abortion whereby innocent human beings are being put to a horrifying death in so-called civilised societies.

I look forward to the BBC also doing a programme detailing the cover-up in Britain of this slaughter of thousands of unborn children disguised in the title "termination of pregnancy". This programmes could well be named The Shame of Great Britain.
