I see Catholic priest Fr. Kevin Doran, board member of the Mater hospital, has resigned as a result of the hospital’s acceptance of the Protection of Life in Pregnancy Act (Irish Examiner).
Fr. Doran is quoted as saying:
The Mater Hospital has an excellent track record of service and care in the spirit of the gospel.
It is that ‘in the spirit of the gospel’ that needs to go with Fr. Doran.
Society will be infinitely better off when the damaging influence of religious superstition is removed from the health treatment environment.
