The Bishop of Shrewsbury, the Rt Rev Mark Davies, will address his congregation tonight at the city's cathedral and condemn aspects of contemporary society.
"The widespread neglect and ill-treatment of the frailest, elderly people in our society: concerns highlighted in the Care Quality Commission's recent report."
"The growing concerns about end of life care and what is happening to the most vulnerable in our hospitals."
"This dark side to our society is surely connected to the discarding of human life from the beginning in legalised abortion on an industrial scale, in reproductive technologies, in embryo experimentation which our laws have sanctioned."
