Priest: BFPA should apologise
A ROMAN CATHOLIC priest is laying the blame for a lack of babies in Barbados, in part, at the feet of the Barbados Family Planning Association (BFPA) and he is calling “on it to apologise to this nation for its success”.
The clergyman – Roman Catholic Church’s Vicar for Family and Youth in Barbados Father Clement Paul also said the passing of abortion legislation had a role to play in Barbadians not having babies.
He said: “Nature has its own laws which when violated causes much imbalance. The present low birth rate is a clear indication that family life is in crisis. This irreplaceable gift of God is under threat.
“Having more babies and using money as an incentive is certainly not the answer. If we have to offer an incentive we may have to promote more wholesome family life programmes and encourage our young people to place marriage and family at the head of their list of priorities.” (JS/PR)
