The Catholic Church, i.e. Church of Christ, has always held abortion at all stages to be the destruction of an innocent life. Long before science had “proven” it, the Church saw that life truly began at the moment of conception. Because it is a full person, he/she is to be protected from conception. I used various authorities of Scripture, Tradition and Canon Law to reaffirm that ALL CHRISTIANS MUST REJECT ABORTION. To support it, to have one, or to perform one is a heinous abomination.

Fr. Bonaventure on the Sadducees’ attempt to trip up Our Lord with a question on a woman with many legitimate husbands and who’s will she be in heaven. Father explains that it is eternal wisdom that overcomes earthly wisdom and this should be used to bring the worldly to their senses. He relates the question to how the earthly institution of marriage reflects the covenant relation of the faithful to God where we will praise our good God for all eternity.
