President Vella: I would rather resign than sign abortion bill

“Vella, who is a doctor by profession, has frequently spoken out against abortion and spoke at an anti-abortion rally last year, prompting criticism from the pro-choice Voice for Choice coalition. 

Asked whether there were any exceptions where one might consider abortion permissible, Vella said there were no half measures to murder. 

“You have either killed or not killed, there can be no half death. I’m very clear, there are no ifs and buts.”
