Pope Benedict: Abortion Does Not Resolve Anything

Pope Benedict said the following words in February regarding abortion as he addressed an audience I attended with the Pontifical Academy for Life: “Doctors cannot fail to defend against the deception of the conscience of many women who think they will find in abortion the solution to family, economic, social difficulties or to the problems of health of their children. Especially in this last situation, the woman is convinced, often by the doctors themselves, that abortion represents not only a licit moral choice, but that in addition it is a necessary “therapeutic act.”

He also said doctors are to: “Continue affirming that abortion does not resolve anything, but that it kills the child, destroys the woman and blinds the conscience of the child’s father, often ruining family life.”
