Malta news: hunting season announced
Spring hunting season announced
A spring hunting season for quails and turtle doves has been announced from April 12 to 30, both days included. In a statement this afternoon, the government said it was opening the season after it considered an Ornis Committee recommendation and the legal provisions regulating hunting. In line with recommendation submitted by the Committee, and after taking into account data pertaining to the autumn 2011 season, the national hunting bag limit for spring 2012 has been established at not more than 11,000 turtle doves and 5,000 quails. Should the limit be reached before the end of the season, the season would be terminated immediately by means of a press release. The government said Mepa shall be issuing a special licence for the season to all eligible applicants as per procedure established by law. This non-transferrable licence would permit the hunting of just turtle dove and quail. Only the holders of a valid carnet de chasse (licence to hunt birds) were be eligible for the special licence. Those eligible may apply between April 4 and 5 at any MaltaPost branch in Malta and Gozo, during the normal business hours. Upon submission of the application form, the applicant is required to pay €50 Special Licence fee and must present his or her identity card and Carnet de Chasse booklet for 2012-2013.(timesofmalta.com) Hunting is a noble sport if practiced correctly.

Possibility of ethical IVF does exist
Gozo Bishop Mario Grech’s homily on IVF reflects the Church’s position. But the possibility of ethical IVF does exist, as two pro-life groups say. Last Friday, Mgr Grech described in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) as being highly abortive and appealed in favour of ethical ways of helping infertile couples. He also proposed Natural Procreative Technology, known as NaPro Technology, an alternative to IVF for couples with infertility. The bishop’s comments were considered by many – especially those who insist that IVF and abortion are completely different – as being excessive, but they reflect the teachings of the Church on the matter. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that “techniques that entail the dissociation of husband and wife, by the intrusion of a person other than the couple (donation of sperm or ovum, surrogate uterus), are gravely immoral… “… Techniques involving only the married couple (homologous artificial insemination and fertilisation) are perhaps less reprehensible, yet remain morally unacceptable. They dissociate the sexual act from the procreative act. “A child is not something owed to one, but is a gift. The ‘supreme gift of marriage’ is a human person. A child may not be considered a piece of property, an idea to which an alleged ‘right to a child’ would lead. In this area, only the child possesses genuine rights: The right ‘to be the fruit of the specific act of the conjugal love of his parents,’ and ‘the right to be respected as a person from the moment of his conception.’”(independent.com.mt) The in-vitro fertilization is a subject on which sensible persons must temper thier remarks.

Debono: Party in camouflaged electoral campaign should act as caretaker government
Nationalist MP Franco Debono said today that if the PN had embarked on a camouflaged electoral campaign, it should act as a caretaker government and refrain from entering major binding decisions or commitments Commenting on the fact that parliament has been adjourned for almost four weeks over Easter and the fact that no votes have been taken for over two months, Dr Debono said: "If the party has decided to go into a camouflaged electoral campaign by means of aggressive clientalism spree, whilst giving the impression that it is business as usual, then the government should also act accordingly as a caretaker government, refraining from entering into major binding decisions or commitments." Dr Debono had abstained in a no confidence vote last January, and the Speaker had to use his casting vote. The MP again refused to specify how he would vote in parliament in the future.(timesofmalta.com) This is true, yet everyone does not do it.
