"Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the head of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life, has doubled down in defending a new member appointed by Pope Francis to the Academy who has argued that abortion should be legal until '18 weeks after conception.'
Paglia said that while the appointee’s pro-abortion stance is 'not my personal position, and much less the Academy,' he nevertheless defended the recent selection of pro-abortion University of Oxford Professor Nigel Biggar.
'The nomination of Professor Biggar was directly recommended by the Primate of the Anglican Church, Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who was recently asked to single out a representative,' said Paglia in a June 19 interview with Vatican Insider’s Andrea Tornielli...
Paglia has come under scrutiny by global life-and-family leaders for a number of scandalous actions, including:
- Commissioning a massive homoerotic painting in his Cathedral in which he appeared clasped to a semi-naked man.
- Overseeing the release of the Vatican’s sex-ed program The Meeting Point that bypassed parents as the primary educators of their children and contained sexually explicit images and movie recommendations."
