Pope Francis Allows Catholic Priests To Forgive Abortions
Pope Francis has made history in the Catholic religion by granting permission to ALL priests to forgive women who had abortions. The Church still views abortion as a “grave sin” but will now absolve women who had endured the act in the eyes of God reports CNN:
“I wish to restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life,” the Pope’s letter states.
“In the same way, however, I can and must state that there is no sin that God’s mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to be reconciled with the Father.”
The letter continues by granting all Catholic priests permission to forgive women who have had abortions:
“I henceforth grant to all priests, in virtue of their ministry, the faculty to absolve those who have committed the sin of procured abortion.”
