Press Association – A vigil for expectant mothers has taken place during a day of prayer at Knock, Co Mayo
A senior Catholic cleric has told a vigil for expectant mothers that abortion can never be justified.
During a day of prayer at Knock, Co Mayo, Bishop Brendan Leahy, the recently-installed Bishop of Limerick, voiced opposition to new legislation that would allow pregnancy terminations in limited circumstances.
