The Fort Worth Roman Catholic Diocese has reached another settlement involving sexual abuse claims against a former priest who died in 1999.
Ireland's minister of health came out in full support of the nation's hotly contested abortion bill on Thursday, assuring that hospitals would not be allowed to perform the procedure at will, but only to save the lives of at-risk women.
"I firmly believe that this legislation strikes the right balance in providing legal clarity around rights which already exist, while at the same time providing the clearest reassurance that any attempt to abuse this legislation will be thwarted," Mr. Reilly said, UPI reported.
Dr. James Reilly said government officials would track and red flag hospitals that seemed to be performing the procedure too much, The Irish Times reported.
