Catholic teaching is very clear and unambiguous: Not in any way can abortion be condoned.
“A woman who deliberately destroys a fetus is answerable for murder. And any fine distinction as to its being completely formed or unformed is not admissible amongst us.” St. Basil the Great (“Epistle 138,” c. 375 A.D.)
“To destroy the fetus ‘is something worse than murder.’ The one who does this ‘does not take away life that has already been born, but prevents it from being born.'” St. John Chrysostom (“Homilies on Romans,” c. 391 A.D.)
From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
2271. “Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law: You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish. [Didache 2, 2: SCh 248, 148; cf. Ep. Barnabae 19, 5: PG 2, 777; Ad Diognetum 5, 6: PG 2, 1173; Tertullian, Apol. 9: PL 1, 319-320.] God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes. [GS 51#3.]”
It isn’t rocket science. If any persons hold ANY other belief about abortion other than it being a terrible mortal sin, then they are adhering to a heresy and may very well be in danger of hell.
As I do not wish to be guilty of not warning people so they can repent and return to orthodox belief, here is an attempt on my part to provide this information for the good of souls.
Dear Lord, please bring those who deny Church teaching to repentance and conversion. Please bring about changes in people’s hearts and end abortion forever. +Amen.
