Victim quits pope's abuse panel, slams 'shameful' Vatican

Victim quits pope's abuse panel, slams 'shameful' VaticanMarie Collins, an Irish survivor of clerical sex abuse, resigned Wednesday from Pope Francis’s child protection panel, accusing senior Vatican officials of “shameful” blocking of reforms approved by the pontiff. The 70-year-old, who was raped by a hospital chaplain at 13, explained her decision in an article for the National Catholic Reporter (NCR). Collins’s departure leaves the Pontifical Commission on the Protection of Minors with no abuse survivors working for it.
