In his sermon on the Assumption Day, Salzburg Archbishop Franz Lackner called for the protection of human life.
“Life is and remains a divine gift. That is why, especially in our time, it is deeply worth protecting,” the archdiocese documented the sermon of the chairman of the Austrian Bishops’ Conference in a press release.
He also rejected the EU Parliament’s intention to declare abortion a human right in the EU (on which IFamNews has reported): “We Christians cannot and must not go along with that.”
In Austria, he said, the Constitutional Court’s decision to legalize assisted suicide meant that a red line has been crossed, which “will severely damage the substance of life as a whole. For, the more the beginning and end of life are regulated by man, the more difficult life will become in between.”
