Fr. Shenan Boquet answers:

Is it the Catholic Church’s position that you should not have an abortion under any circumstances?

Why is abortion such a big debate, when the answer is so simply that abortion is murder?

What is the response to the argument that if abortion is made illegal, mothers living in poverty and their children will die from an even worse poverty?

Is it acceptable to terminate a pregnancy if the mother’s life is in danger, and the child cannot be saved but the mother can?

Shouldn’t we turn to Scripture (such as the verse that says, “You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and also the cup of demons”) when we discuss the abortion debate?

How do we promote life with the definition of personhood and by using the word “person” rather than “human being?”

How can someone be a good patriot and a good Catholic, since it’s our freedom in America to do as we choose?

Can a person really be pro-life if they are in favor of the death penalty?
