A while ago I happened upon a rerun of the now canceled tv series, “ER”. This episode mostly focused on this young teen girl who came into the ER and discovered she was pregnant. She originally voiced concerns about carrying the child to term, however her parents were religious. This caused the young female intern to try and help the young girl abort her child and she was prevented by her higher up, Kovac. It’s revealed that Kovac is Catholic. Towards the end of the episode just before the young teen goes off, Kovac gives her this thing (didn’t catch what it was) saying that it could cause a miscarriage and was a way to ask God if he was really sure if he wanted this.
Personally, I find this morally appalling. But at the same time, this method spoken of, surely it has not a thread of morality to stand on, right? Kovac would also be committing mortal sin by suggesting it, right?
