    It's getting rough out there


    THE Catholic Church could one day be prosecuted for its right-to-life stance by some countries where abortion is considered a woman's right, a senior Vatican cardinal said in an interview published today.

    "I fear that faced with current legislation, speaking in defence of life, of the rights of the family, is becoming in some societies a crime against the state, a form of disobedience of the government, a discrimination against women.

    "The Church risks being brought in front of some international court, if the debate gets any more tense, if the most radical opinions are heeded," Lopez Trujillo told Famiglia Cristiana, a Catholic Italian weekly.

    Last week, another cardinal said he feared human rights group Amnesty International might start campaigning against countries that make abortion a crime. The group said it was discussing the issue but no decision had been made.

    Who would have thought that a painful witness would be called for in
    Western civilization. I guess that it was not that long ago that we had the
    Nazis and Mexicans. To me it just seemed like a history lesson. Now it is coming
    back.

    I like the challenge, and hope I am up to it.
