Abortion is not the only evil in the world – and the Church and some Catholics have become so obsessed with abortion they overlook – even seem to condone – other evils. This child – was raped continuously by her step father since the age of six – the thought of it is horrifying – but do we hear the Church speaking out to condemn the step father and the horror and evil of his acts?? no – their contribution to the appaling acts against this child is to excomunicate – hey – maybe they should start excommunicating all those priests who sexually abused children – bet they had no qualms about abortion when one of their victims got pregnant – the Church needs to remember that Jesus was about love and mercy and compassion – not about obsessing over one act of eveil – abortion – while ignoring other horrifying evil

Research has shown that prior induced abortion has been significantly associated with subsequent preterm birth. In addition, preterm birth is a risk factor for developmental disabilities including, but not limited to, cerebral palsy and autism. Submitting this child to an abortion could mean dire consequences when as an adult she wants to conceive and carry a child to term. It is also important to know that abortion is a tool that helps the child abuser continue to sexually abuse. Ending a pregnancy by abortion helps to hide the crime and quiet the victim. With the evidence of abuse missing, the victim can once again be abused in secret. Too often abortion is seen and chosen as a quick fix for a social problem. The Catholic Church sees it for what it is and stands up for born and unborn human life.
