What I find most offensive about Cherie Blair's speech at the Angelicum ...

... is that her only criticism of abortion was that it was being used to weed out baby girls. As if to say, hey, other than that, no problem. Nor did she mention that, apart from its ending the lives of many millions of children each year, abortion damages women physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Her glossing over inconvenient truths is really no surprise, given her longtime, determined advocacy for the culture of death. LifeSiteNews has the full text of the speech by the former British prime minister's wife at the pontifical university.

In the words of LifeSiteNews' Hilary White, Blair "carefully omitted any mention of her ongoing support for International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), the U.K.’s Family Planning Association (FPA), the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and other organizations whose agenda includes global abortion-on-demand."
