Would such an abortion be a sin?

Whether aborting a 15 days foetus is sin? This happened in an unmarried pair. Need some further counselling.

Dear friend,

Of course, it’s a sin; a mortal sin! Once the sperm and egg have united, a new person exists with an immortal soul. To deliberately kill it is to take innocent human life.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
