Benedict XVI: “Abortion is not the solution to economic difficulties or health problems of child”

2011-02-28

Benedict XVI
"Doctors are called to show particular fortitude in continuing to affirm that abortion resolves nothing; rather it kills the child, destroys the woman and blinds the conscience of the childs father, often devastating family life.”

The Pope made these remarks during his meeting with members of the Pontifical Academy for Life, which for three days analyzed post-abortion trauma and the therapeutic use of umbilical cord cells.

He urged them to continue working in search of what he called "more appropriate responses for the good of humanity.”

Speaking on abortion, Benedict XVI said men should not abandon women at their time of need during pregnancy.   

Benedict XVI
"It would also be helpful to focus attention on the sometimes-clouded conscience of the childrens fathers, who often abandon pregnant women.”

Benedict XVI then asked the audience to continue providing psychological support for women who have had abortions so they can overcome the "moral and existential drama” it often causes.
