Truth and lies about abortion

Mr. Muehlenberg has posted another typically excellent piece on his blog, looking at some of the myths surrounding abortion. I recommend strongly that you read it; it contains much useful apologetical information for anti-abortionists.

The Church has always taught that abortion is a grave sin; thanks to contemporary embryology we know now that it is not just any grave sin, but is truly murder. That the newly-conceived fœtus is a living human body is beyond doubt, and we know that a human being is a unity of body and soul, so the newly-conceived fœtus is indeed a human being. Abortion is murder. It is the secularist agnosticism and materialism towards what constitutes ‘personhood’ that prevents many from admitting this.
