In a strongly worded homily preached yesterday at St Mirin's Cathedral in paisley, Bishop Philip Tartaglia described the current " Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill" as a " state-sponsored attack on unborn human life". The Bishops' homily coincided with the distribution of a national pastoral letter from all Scotland's Bishops to the Catholic community warning of the dangers of the legislation:  

The move to allow the creation of human-animal embryos is described by Archbishop Tartaglia as a " twisted enterprise" and he repeats the cal that MP's should "be able to vote according to their consciences".  

The full text of the homily is shown below
