'...not just the premier Christian bioethics institute in Britain,
but one of the finest in the world, Christian or secular'
Most Rev. Anthony Fisher O.P., Auxiliary Bishop of Sydney
This booklet examines the situations in which women have recourse to abortion, and describes the different methods of abortion. It explains Catholic Church teaching on abortion in clear and accessible language. Reference is made to Scripture and to recent key teaching documents. The 'non-religious' arguments against abortion are also explained in full. A final section on how we should respond to abortion addresses the many practical implications of Catholic teaching. Further reading and a full glossary are provided.
