Title: St. Basil the Great on Abortion
Post by: pebbles on January 02, 2015, 10:03:49 PM
A woman who deliberately destroys a fetus is answerable for murder. And any fine distinction between its being completely formed or unformed is not admissible among us.


I researched when St. Basil lived (born around 330AD) ... I've always known the stand of the Church concerning abortion.  And I've wondered how long has this been taught.  Well, now I know!  ;D

People argue as to when a baby is considered a person.  That's why they have this "window of opportunity" to abort a fetus.  Which is RIDICULOUS! 

The beginning of life is the instant fertilization of the egg by the sperm.  Conception is not when a fetus is formed "enough" ... Conceiving is enough.  He/she is a person already.

Amen.

It is obvious enough according to conscience!
