A Catholic priest in Malta criticized a prominent political leader this week for abandoning his pro-life stance on unborn babies’ right to life.

Lovin Malta reports Monsignor Anton Gouder reminded Malta Parliament Opposition Leader Bernard Grech that abortion is the “murder of an unborn child.”

Earlier this week, Grech appeared to abandon his pro-life stance in an interview with Xtra, saying politicians “shouldn’t tell people how to live their lives,” according to the report.

Malta is facing intense international pressure to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions. It is one of the few countries in Europe that still protects their right to life. Grech is the leader of the Nationalist Party (PN), which opposes abortion, but his interview this week raised serious questions about his commitment to protecting unborn babies’ right to life.
