Is it wrong for me to be pro choice?

I am a Catholic, and I know that I am suppose to believe in pro life, but, the way I am thinking is let’s say a women gets rapped and from the rappe she gets pregant , the women should have the right to have anabortion is this wrong, of me to think this way, because of my religon?

Dear friend,

Abortion isn’t primarily a matter of faith: it a matter of justice. Abortion is not about the woman only. The child didn’t ask to be conceived. But once it exists, it has a right to life. No one has the right to take innocent life for ANY reason.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
