Pro-Abortion Mantra: Archbishop Martin Calls For "Safe, Rare and Legal" Abortion

The abortion law in Ireland should allow abortion “which is rare, which is safe, and which is legal”, said Archbishop Eamon Martin of Armagh, the Primate of Ireland, talking to the Irish RTE News (May 27).

OnePeterFive.com (May 30) confronted Martin's press office with this unfortunate quotation. Press speaker Martin Long replied that the words “were taken out of the context”.

But OnePeterFive.com asked back in what context the “safe, legal, and rare” mantra could make sense.

Only then, the press speaker admitted that Martin “should not have used the quotation” which originally was uttered by the [abominable] Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

It is an abomination of desolation. The sign of future was Longford Irish Cathedral burning on 25th of December of 2009. St Mel's Cathedral fire Majestic Irish Cathedral (St. Mel in Longford) Destroyed by Fire between the conclusion of the midnight Mass and Christmas morning 2009.

Call the bluff. Make it "rare". It's like martial arts: use your opponents offensive against him.

If this statement is true, he has no business being a bishop than my pinky toe does.

He was taken out of context, I'm sure; of course he meant safe for the child. Perhaps the church should use some of the collecting basket to buy its priests brains.

There is another dimension to this triangulation that most people miss. The terms "safe" and "rare" are subjective and undefined. But "legal" is objective. Essentially what Clinton and the ABp are doing is wrapping "legal" around two nice sounding but ultimately meaningless terms in hopes that nobody recognizes that "legal" is the only goal.

@Robster - the Democrat party removed "rare" from their platform two presidential election cycles ago. And so it gathers speed, down to hell...

Oh, yeah, Bill Clinton said that, too. Good company!

Legal? Check.
Safe? Relatively so, for the mother at least.
Rare? Not so much.

Cdl Dolan used the same phrase years ago. It was related that the context was, "OK, if you say you want abortion to be safe, rare and legal, then let's work to make that happen" (paraphrase). The idea being, if I'm not mistaken, that abortion was already legal, and relatively safe (for the mother), so now let's make …More

A strategy of pragmatism, it would seem. A very clever toehold on the enemy's rhetoric. Think it through, Catholics. These guys cannot catch a break in the media. EVERYTHING they say is going to be distorted and spun.

If he's quoting the Prime Minister, then he is siding with, agreeing with him. How shameful, disgusting, heretical. Actually, adding insult to injury, he puts it on those who voted "No" to assure abortion is "safe, legal and rare."

It's too bad he and others didn't bother to take a little walk through history. In the U.S.A. these words used to be part of the Democrat Party platform...until they …More
If he's quoting the Prime Minister, then he is siding with, agreeing with him. How shameful, disgusting, heretical. Actually, adding insult to injury, he puts it on those who voted "No" to assure abortion is "safe, legal and rare."

It's too bad he and others didn't bother to take a little walk through history. In the U.S.A. these words used to be part of the Democrat Party platform...until they removed "rare" two elections ago. It's so judgmental, after all, to limit in ones mind the number of (safe, legal) abortions one has (sarc!).

They will also soon learn that "safe" isn't much of a concern either. Making sure abortions happen is much, much more important than "safety" in the U.S. Just ask any serious pro-life group. A recent example is Gosnell (known from the 1972 "Mother's Day Massacre") in Pennsylvania. The laws were in place, so they simply didn't inspect his office...for 13 years... as stacks of complaints of injury and even death grew and grew. Since 2011 he is in jail with 8 counts of murder and literally hundreds of other violations. These crimes surfaced after efforts were made to investigate...prescription drug violations.

They will keep legal - not for the sake of mothers, but for the sake of the killers.

Wake up, Ireland.
