The Truth About Abortion

What does the Catholic Church teach and believe about abortion?

In the modern “culture of death,” the number of unborn children slaughtered in the wombs of their mothers in the last 25 years is 1200 million in the world and 37 million in the USA (4400 per day in the U.S.).

But the Catholic Church teaches that abortion is morally evil and a grave sin because: 1) the Bible teaches that life is a gift of God, and hence we have to respect it from womb to tomb.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you” (Jer 1:5).

The Church teaches that God gives a soul to the fertilized ovum making it a human person with an alienable right to life and development.

2) it is God’s commandment that we shall not kill

(Exodus 20: 13: “You shall not kill”)

Any tiny human embryo can grow into a child, and modern medical technology can enable it to survive outside of its mother’s womb after 5 and half months.

3) International Law forbids the killing of innocent, defenseless people. Abortion is the killing of a defenseless child in its safest abode by its own mother, mostly for self motives.

4) Abortion harms women physically, emotionally, psychologically, socially, and spiritually.

5) Advocates of pro-choice follow a dangerous principle of far-reaching consequences in society. If it is justifiable to kill unwanted children by abortion, then the old, the sick, the handicapped, the mentally ill, and the retarded can also be killed.

Hence we need to respect and protect all forms of human life from conception to natural death; we need to work and pray vigorously to end the culture of death.

God bless you all.

With lots of love and blessing.

Ever at your service.

—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

The cross today is the universal image of Christian belief. Countless generations of artists have turned it into a thing of beauty to be carried in procession or worn as jewelry. To the eyes of the first Christians, it had no beauty. It stood outside…
