Bishop Blackwell
Prologue
The Primate introduced Phyllis Creighton and Diane Marshall. He advised that Dr. Jim Reed was unable to attend and had forwarded regrets. The committee regarded abortion as the taking of a human life - a tragedy - while realizing that, under some circumstances, it is necessary and should be legally provided.
Text
That the House recommend to NEC that the Primate take the necessary steps as soon as possible to have the Report on Abortion, following minor revisions, printed in an appropriate form and made available to the church and the Canadian public. CARRIED #1-11-88
Notes
The committee members were highly commended for their work on this report. The Primate agreed to liaise with those bishops who have suggested revisions, prior to printing.
