Archbishop Charles Scicluna said that it’s positive that Malta’s PM Robert Abela regards every life as indispensable.

Speaking to the press after his first formal meeting with Abela, Mgr. Scicluna described the meeting as positive.

Mgr. Scicluna said that he respects Abela’s choices about Article 2 of the Constitution and his stance against abortion.

Article 2 states that “the religion of Malta is the Roman Catholic Apostolic Religion.”

Mgr. Scicluna said that it’s positive that Abela respects Malta’s history and that it shoulnd’t be cancelled for the sake of being liberal. He also added that the freedom of a person to hold no beliefs is also enshrined within the Constitution. He said that everyone should be allowed full religious liberty.

According to the Archbishop the abortion issue is a question of humanity.

“If we truly want to take care of future generations, we must allow them to be born,” said Mgr. Scicluna. He further added that society must not judge women but instead provide them with all the help and support they need.
