My open letter to Catholic Culture / Catholic World News!
Article by Marc Aupiais
Your article on the European Court of Human Rights finding is not only misleading it is inaccurate. The BBC itself seems to have gotten the facts wrong but this is not as excusable for Catholic culture. As someone who is studying law and takes an interest in these sorts of cases, I was upset that you did not even refer to the judgement or differentiate at all!
Here is my own take on the matter. Read it or don't, but this is entirely unacceptable from an organisation such as yours:
European court rules- No human right to abortion, but asks Irish government for clearer regulations
I find it amazing consistently how big organizations get things wrong, while people like me who write for no profit but an interest, so often get better results by careful research.
Is anyone on your team legally trained in Roman Law principles on which human rights and European law are based?
