Rael Conveys His Support To The Rape Victims

His Holiness Rael Conveys His Support To The Rape Victims Who Decide To Get An Abortion

Following the decision by the Catholic Church to excommunicate a family from Nicaragua because they had their daughter, a rape victim, undergo an abortion, His Holiness RAEL decided to contact this family and offer them the possibility of being baptized to the Raelian Movement. In addition, he will also contact the 30 000 Spanish Catholic families who have shown solidarity with this family and have asked the Pope to excommunicate them as well. His Holiness RAEL will remind them that it is not necessary to make such a request to the Pope, which he will disregard, but that instead they should send an act of Apostasy which is an official way to debaptize from their religion, and the Church cannot disregard it.

RAEL will enclose an Apostasy form that only needs to be filled out and sent to their Parish. It is the same form that Raelians distributed in front of schools in Quebec, Canada.
