Tagle blasts abortion on global day of prayer for creation

MANILA, Sept. 1, 2015 – Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle slammed abortion as an attack on human dignity— an important facet in respect for creation.

The Manila archbishop lamented attacks on human life which, he said, mirror today’s materialistic mentality.

“If you are useful anymore, you are dropped. It is not a contemplation of human dignity,” Tagle said.

Strong message

“Even people are measured by profitability that is why children being conceived in the womb can be aborted,” he said.

Tagle made the strong anti-abortion message during a Mass on Tuesday for the first World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation declared by Pope Francis.

Taking a cue from the Pope’s Laudato Si encyclical, he deplored abortion as an indication of today’s “throw-away culture” and “that is why children are considered as liabilities and elderly people are not cared for.”

The Vatican’s landmark document on environment contains several strong pro-life passages, denouncing abortion, population control, and embryonic experimentation.

The encyclical specifically mentions that “concern for the protection of nature is incompatible with the justification of abortion”.

“At times we see an obsession with denying any pre-eminence to the human person; more zeal is shown in protecting other species than in defending the dignity which all human beings share in equal measure,” the Pope said.

See, judge, act

In his homily, Tagle also emphasized the importance of “seeing and judging” the roots of destruction and by “acting” to address the problem.

Among the actions that can be taken, he said, is “education in spirituality” that can be manifested in “little gestures” such as “change of lifestyle.”

“Since God is the Creator, He is the owner of everything. We are humble creatures. We are not the owners,” he said.

“We are stewards. We are supposed to take care of God’s creation,” added Tagle, who is also the President of Caritas Internationalis.

  1. […] Cardinal Tagle would represent “the poor Church for the poor”, and would fit in with the Pope Francis’ expectations: a pastoral churchman with the capacity of holding firm on some points, as happened when he opposed an abortion bill in the Philippines. […]
