IRONTON — Abortion may be legal, but it isn’t moral, said the Most Rev. Daniel Conlon, bishop of the diocese of Steubenville.
Conlon dedicated a memorial Saturday morning to the unborn in the yard beside St. Lawrence O’Toole church in Ironton. He accepted an invitation from the Knights of Columbus council 1405 in Ironton to bless the memorial as a symbol of the local Catholic community’s opposition to abortion.
“Life is a gift from God,” Conlon said. “Many people have (had abortions) and turned their backs on God. Life is precious.”
