So far I have read two articles about Catholics and abortion in order to get a general idea of what this site is all about. The first article, admittedly made me angry and that is because it advocated the pro-abortion position, that is, the position that murdering an unborn child is just fine. And their justification for this? Basically that no one knows for sure when ensoulment occurs and therefore we should value the pregnant woman over the unborn baby because we know for sure that the pregnant woman has a soul but we don't know for sure that the unborn baby has a soul. Well, I believe that every single time fertilization occurs, there is a new person who has a soul that is instantly created by God.
The other article I read took the pro-life position. Its basic stance is that all persons have a right to life and that abortion does not solve any problems. The article uses the example of a pregnant teenager who is addicted to drugs and whose boyfriend abuses her. The article says that giving the girl an abortion doesn't solve any of the problems that exist, all it does is kill another person. After the abortion has occurred, the girl is still addicted to drugs and she still has an abusive boyfriend so therefore no problem has been solved. The only difference between the situation before the abortion and the situation after the abortion is that before the abortion, there was three persons but after the abortion there is two persons and one dead person. I agree with this.
So yeah, I am kind of confused right now. I am going to have to read more of their articles before I decide whether or not this site can go on my favorites list. :p
The first article you mention was definitely not correct; the second one sounds correct from the example you gave.
God bless you for seeking the truth. :)
