Freedom and Abortion

The authentic Catholic Church teaching on the evil of abortion.
by Staff Writer | Source:

The official Catechism of the Catholic Church says the following about abortion:

Abortion (CCC 2270 - 2274)

2270 Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.

My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately wrought in the depths of the earth.

2271 Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:

You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.

God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.

2272 Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life. "A person who procures a completed abortion incurs excommunication latae sententiae," "by the very commission of the offense," and subject to the conditions provided by Canon Law. The Church does not thereby intend to restrict the scope of mercy. Rather, she makes clear the gravity of the crime committed, the irreparable harm done to the innocent who is put to death, as well as to the parents and the whole of society.

2273 The inalienable right to life of every innocent human individual is a constitutive element of a civil society and its legislation:

"The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority. These human rights depend neither on single individuals nor on parents; nor do they represent a concession made by society and the state; they belong to human nature and are inherent in the person by virtue of the creative act from which the person took his origin. Among such fundamental rights one should mention in this regard every human being's right to life and physical integrity from the moment of conception until death."

"The moment a positive law deprives a category of human beings of the protection which civil legislation ought to accord them, the state is denying the equality of all before the law. When the state does not place its power at the service of the rights of each citizen, and in particular of the more vulnerable, the very foundations of a state based on law are undermined. . . . As a consequence of the respect and protection which must be ensured for the unborn child from the moment of conception, the law must provide appropriate penal sanctions for every deliberate violation of the child's rights."


2274 Since it must be treated from conception as a person, the embryo must be defended in its integrity, cared for, and healed, as far as possible, like any other human being.

Prenatal diagnosis is morally licit, "if it respects the life and integrity of the embryo and the human fetus and is directed toward its safe guarding or healing as an individual. . . . It is gravely opposed to the moral law when this is done with the thought of possibly inducing an abortion, depending upon the results: a diagnosis must not be the equivalent of a death sentence."

2275 "One must hold as licit procedures carried out on the human embryo which respect the life and integrity of the embryo and do not involve disproportionate risks for it, but are directed toward its healing the improvement of its condition of health, or its individual survival."

"It is immoral to produce human embryos intended for exploitation as disposable biological material."

"Certain attempts to influence chromosomic or genetic inheritance are not therapeutic but are aimed at producing human beings selected according to sex or other predetermined qualities. Such manipulations are contrary to the personal dignity of the human being and his integrity and identity" which are unique and unrepeatable.

Bible verses against abortion

You shall not murder. -Exodus 20:13

Keep far from a false charge, and don’t kill the innocent and righteous: for I will not justify the wicked. -Exodus 23:7

You shall not murder. -Deuteronomy 5:17

‘Cursed is he who takes a bribe to kill an innocent person.’ All the people shall say, ‘Amen.’ -Deuteronomy 27:25

Didn’t he who made me in the womb make him? Didn’t one fashion us in the womb? -Job 31:15

Now the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the belly, I knew you. Before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” -Jeremiah 1:4-5

They built high places to Baal in the Valley of Ben-hinnom, and immolated their sons and daughters to Molech, bringing sin upon Judah; this I never commanded them, nor did it even enter my mind that they should practice such abominations. –Jeremiah 32:35

Listen, islands, to me; and listen, you peoples, from far: Yahweh has called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother has he made mention of my name. -Isaiah 49:1

Hazael asked, "Why are you weeping, my lord?" Elisha replied, "Because I know the evil that you will inflict upon the Israelites. You will burn their fortresses, you will slay their youth with the sword, you will dash their little children to pieces, you will rip open their pregnant women." -2 Kings 8:12

Behold, children are a heritage of Yahweh. The fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalms 127:3

For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. My frame wasn’t hidden from you, when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my body. In your book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there were none of them. -Psalms 139:13-16

It happened, when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, that the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. -Luke 1:41

For behold, when the voice of your greeting came into my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy! -Luke 1:44

A voice was heard in Ramah, sobbing and loud lamentation; Rachel weeping for her children, and she would not be consoled, since they were no more." –Matthew 2:18

Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them.” –Matthew 19:14

He said to him, “Which ones?” Jesus said, ‘You shall not murder.’ ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ ‘You shall not steal.’ ‘You shall not offer false testimony.’ -Matthew 19:18

But Peter and the apostles answered, ‘We must obey God rather than men.’ -Acts 5:29

Don’t you know that you are a temple of God, and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is holy, which you are. -I Corinthians 3:16-17

On the subject of abortion I'm including below a letter I sent some time ago to the governor of the state of Michigan. I never got a response.

Does this mean that God does not forgive the woman who goes through an abortion?

Those last two comments are of people who have yet to have a full understanding of who God is. All of the consequences that are being told to us in scripture are to be upon all who do not repent. Jesus came here to give us life and he brought us forgiveness. We will all sin and always fall short of the glory of God. Jesus is our bridge our hope who can restore us and bring us back to God. We must pray for people to come to Christ and sin in this nature no more. God Bless!

The Bible says that all sains can be forgiven so if Dorothy Day confessed and received absolution from a priest, she could still be a saint. Look at St. Augustine's past - he partied and slept around for years before he converted.

I am confused as to why the church has given permission to work on cannonization of Dorothy Day as a Saint when she has written a book puplicly stating that she had an abortion. I believe she is out of one of the dioseces of New York.
