Our purpose here is not to provide an exhaustive treatment of the moral issues surrounding abortion. Such a work would fill volumes. Yet in the spirit of saying something so that we be not silent,96 we provide here some limited accounting of the moral harm caused by abortion. Any of these examples of abortion’s moral harm is sufficient to demonstrate to tender Christian consciences the wickedness of abortion. Taken together, these examples expose the monstrosity of this sin.
Augustine, On the Trinity 7.6.11.↩︎
