He expressed hopes that soon land mines -- which kill or maim more than 25,000 people a year around the world -- will be viewed by the international com- munity in the same way as bio- logical or chemical warfare. The bishops also agreed, by a 207-1 vote, on a 29-page statement, titled "Faithful for Life," which calls advances in abortion and euthanasia in the name of human freedom "free- dom gone wrong." The statement compares legal abortion and proposals of legal euthanasia in America to the na- tion's former denial of human rights to,blacks in slavery. It also compares them to this cen- tury's Nazi campaigns to exter- minate Jews, Slavs, Gypsies and the mentally ill on the basis of theories that classified those groups as "subhuman." -,,:t;, p P Reilly of Daniel Similar near-unanimity :.*er, Ms- " " " : , as., wno mro- See BISHOPS page 12 J!!-00atholic Parishes Campaign reaches 90 percent !iinarv renort shows amounted to $2,463,607.
