The rise of liberal Gozo

The picture emerging from a GozoToday survey carried out over the last week among 300 Gozitan residents is a more secular one than previous surveys.
Despite strong opposition to IVF by the Curia, which was relayed to the faithful in a pastoral letter read in all churches in Malta and Gozo, 73% of Gozitans support the inclusion of IVF in public healthcare.
Bishop Mario Grech who still enjoys the trust of 59% of Gozitans had launched a scathing attack on in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), describing it as "a highly abortive" technique.
The survey also provides an insight on gay marriage and the Gozitans' main concerns.
