ROME - Pope Benedict XVI Saturday reaffirmed his strict opposition to abortion, warning during a plenary meeting of the Pontifical Academy for Life in the Italian capital Rome that “abortion solves no problem”.
“But it kills a child, destroys the woman, weighs on the conscience of the father and often ruins family life,” Benedict said.
The pontiff appealed to the moral conscience of all those considering an abortion, and argued that all of society should be dedicated to preserving the right to life.
He also called for all the women “who have unfortunately aborted and thereby fallen into a moral and existential drama” to be helped.
