Roman Catholic View On Abortion.?


Catholics believe that from the moment of conception until natural death, each human being is endowed by God with dignity and rights. You shall not kill. (Ex 20:13- cf. Deut 5:17) Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you. (Jer 1:5- cf. Job 10:8-12- Ps 22:10-11) My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately wrought in the depths of the earth. (Ps 139:15) Early Church writings: You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish. (Didache 2, 2: SCh 248, 148- cf. Ep. Barnabae 19, 5: PG 2, 777- Ad Diognetum 5, 6: PG 2, 1173- Tertullian, Apol. 9: PL 1, 319-320) For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, sections 2270 and following: With love in Christ.


Catholics are not allowed to use birth control, therefore abortion is also not an option. Many Catholics do practice birth control privately, and pray for a pope who will come out of the dark ages into the light of the 21st century. These directives came about long ago simply to guarantee their religion's populace/existence into the future. Got to fill those collection envelopes you know. I was raised Catholic, went to Catholic school for nine years. Were you aware that you can 'buy' an annulment of your Catholic marriage? my father did- for $500. he got his nineteen year marriage to my mother annulled! three children were born of that marriage, so if the marriage never existed according to the catholic church, (in the eyes of God), then does that make the children 'illegitimate' to the church and in the eyes of God? my father hated that question and that question is the reason I am not a practicing catholic. I walk a spiritual path, I believe in my relationship with God, I just don't buy the 'dogma' of any religion anymore.


Well, if you are looking for Scripture, " Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you." For the church's stance on abortion and Life...check out the text of the encyclical Humana Vitae...."on Human Life" EWTN.COM has it in their library.


This should be addressed to the Pope, after all don't the Catholics consider the Pope to be infallible?


the reason they dont allow it is because it is killing a human life and that if you do you are breaking one of the 10 commandments. the hard part is determining when EXACTLY it is considered a human being, such as the zygote, 4 months in the womb, when it comes out? ETC there is no true answer just your own beliefs.

slkusracttheladygeorge I personally support a woman right to choose I believe it's something between a woman & her God. Although Roman Catholic I do have free will and use it.


Here it is, straight from the Pope.


go look up the popes speechs about it on the internet


Catholic hospitals are now allowing the "Plan B" drug to be used in cases of rape. I support that decision.
