Will the Spanish bishops enforce Canon 915?

Perhaps they lwere encouraged by the millions of Spaniards who gathered to support life this summer. Or perhaps it's the Holy Spirit. Or both. Either way, God is moving in Spain.

The announcement from the Spanish bishops comes as the Spanish parliament is considering a law that would make it easier to get an abortion in Spain by allowing 16-year olds to get an abortion without parental consent, among other measures.

In their statement, the bishops endorse the June 17th declaration of the bishops' Permanent Commission, entitled: "On the Proposed Abortion Law: An Assault against the Unborn Transformed into a 'Right.'"
The document states that this transformation of abortion into a right is the "poisoned source of immorality and injustice that corrupts the entire text [of the proposed law]."

Hope the USCCB is watching. Their abortion laws aren't nearly as liberal as ours. We permit minors to get abortions without parental consent in many states, and abortion is legal throughout all nine months.
