German hospitals allow
contraceptives in rape cases

a

Hospitals still can't
perscribe drugs
that lead to death of
embryo
BERLIN (AP) - Roman Cath-
olic-run hospitals can prescribe
limited emergency contracep-
tion to rape victims, German
bishops said Thursday as they
sought to contain fallout from
an embarrassing recent case in
which two hospitals refused to
treat a woman.
In a statement issued at the
end of a regular meeting in the
western city of Trier, the Ger-
man Bishops Conference said
Catholic hospitals still can't
provide drugs that would lead
to the death of an embryo.
The German church was
under pressure to clarify its
stance after two Catholic hos-
pitals in Cologne turned away a
rape victim because of concerns

over the pill. Cologne's arch-
bishop, Cardinal Joachim Meis-
ner, said last month that the
church was "deeply ashamed
by this incident because it goes
against our Christian mission."
At the end of January, Meis-
ner said it was "justifiable" in
such cases to provide drugs that
prevent conception. He later
said he had consulted with Pope
Benedict XVI's secretary, Georg
Gaenswein, and was told that
"everything is alright."
For decades, Catholic hos-
pitals have in cases of rape
allowed the use of spermicidal
wash to impede sperm from
reaching an egg and drugs to
prevent the victim from ovulat-
ing. The rationale is that rape
is an act of violence against a
woman; to prevent the attack
from continuing, a hospital can
use drugs to impede conception.
Church teaching, however,
holds that life begins at concep-
tion, and thus forbids the use
of drugs that would intercept,

H,-,,

dislodge or abort a fertilized
egg, according to the Rev. Rob-
ert Gahl, a moral theologian at
Rome's Pontifical Holy Cross
University.
"This new determination by
the German bishops is in full
continuity with church teach-
ing, and specifies how best to
implement new pharmaceutical
technology," Gahl said.
Thursday's statement by
the bishops stressed that rape
victims "can of course receive
human, medical, psychological
and pastoral help in Catholic
hospitals.
"That can include prescrip-
tion of the 'morning-after pill,'
insofar as it has a preventive and
not an abortive effect. Medical
and pharmaceutical methods
which result in the death of an
embryo still may not be used."
It said the bishops "trust that
practical treatment in Catholic-
run facilities will take place on
the basis of these moral and
theological guidelines."

An official of India's National Investigation Agency collects evidence from the debris at one of the two bomb blast sites

Bombing ranks as
worst in the country
in more than a year,
hospitalizes 75
HYDERABAD, India (AP)
- A pair of bombs exploded in
a crowded shopping area in the
southern Indian city of Hyder-
abad, killing at least 13 people
and wounding scores of oth-
ers in the worst bombing in the
country in more than a year.
The blasts occurred about
two minutes apart at around 7
p.m. Thursday outside a movie
theater and a bus station, police
said. Storefronts were shat-
tered, motorcycles were covered
in debris, and food and plates
from a roadside restaurant were
scattered on the ground near a
tangle of dead bodies. Passersby
rushed the wounded out of the
area.
"This is a dastardly attack,
the guilty will not go unpun-
ished," Prime Minister Manmo-
han Singh said. He appealed to
the public to remain calm.
The bombs were attached to
two bicycles about 150 meters

(500 feet) apart in Dilsukh
Nagar district, Home Minis-
ter Sushilkumar Shinde told
reporters in New Delhi. The
district is a usually crowded
shopping area near a residential
neighborhood.
When asked if the govern-
ment had any suspects, Shinde
responded: "We have to inves-
tigate."
India has been in a state of
alert since Mohammed Afzal
Guru, a Kashmiri, was hanged
in a New Delhi jail nearly two
weeks ago. Guru had been con-
victed of involvement in a 2001
attack on India's Parliament
that killed 14 people, including
five gunmen.
Many in Indian-ruled Kash-
mir believe Guru dia not receive
a fair trial, and the secrecy with
which the execution was car-
ried out fueled anger in a region
where anti-India sentiment
runs deep.
Andhra Pradesh state Home
Minister P. Sabita Reddy said 11
people died on the spot in the
two blasts and another two suc-
cumbed to their injuries in hos-
pital on Thursday night.
She said another 78 people
were injured and hospitalized

in the city.
Top state police officer V.
Dinesh Reddy said improvised
explosive devices with nitro-
gen compound were used in the
blasts.
Mahesh Kumar, a 21-year-
old student, was heading home
from a tutoring class when a
bomb went off.
"I heard a huge sound and
something hit me, I fell down,
and somebody brought me to
the hospital," said Kumar, who
suffered shrapnel wounds.
Hyderabad, a city of 10 mil-
lion in the state of Andhra
Pradesh, is a hub of India's
information technology indus-
try and has a mixed population
of Muslims and Hindus.
"This (attack) is to disturb
the peaceful living of all com-
munities in Andhra Pradesh,"
said Kiran Kumar Reddy, the
state's chief minister.
The explosions were the first
major bomb attack to hit India
since a September 2011 blast
outside the High Court in New
Delhi killed 13 people. The gov-
ernment has been heavily criti-
cized for its failure to arrest the
masterminds behind previous
bombings.
