Archbishop regrets abortion Holocaust remark

COLOGNE - Cologne Archbishop Cardinal Joachim Meisner has issued an apology for remarks made in a sermon comparing abortion to the mass-murder crimes of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

Meisner, under pressure after his remarks stirred sharp criticism by the Central Council of Jews in Germany and other groups, said he regretted that his words could be misunderstood and had he thought they would be, then he would not have made them.

"I am sorry that it has come to this," the Catholic archbishop said about the controversy surrounding his 6 January Epiphany Day sermon in the Cologne Cathedral.
