Abortion

We are all sinners. A woman who has an abortion is committing a sin. We should consider her a sinner, like the rest of us are. Abortion does not occur in a vacuum. Where is the man, and what is his responsibility? Where are her family and what support have they provided? 

What is society doing to encourage her to keep her baby rather than kill it? How old is the woman, a 12 year old has less ability to understand than a 22 year old woman. If a man has sex with a woman she is his responsibility if she gets pregnant. The child is his also. St. Joseph did not urge Mary to have an abortion, he was going to put her away privately; that is take care of her, but not marry her, due to her supposed infidelity to him. 

That certainly is a good example to us all. We must urge recognition of sin, repentance of sin, and reconciliation to God, through our Lord, Jesus Christ.  That's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
