Are abortions permitted by the Church for any reason?
All human life is precious. The Church generally does not grant permission for abortions under any circumstances. However, only if the mother is in danger of death, the Church may allow abortion.
"My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them" (Psalm 139:15-16).
