Priests Can Now Forgive Abortion – Pope Francis

It is considered a serious sin by the Roman Catholic
church that can lead to excommunication.
But Pope Francis says he is showing mercy to women who have had abortions. The pontiff says that priests will now be allowed to forgive women for "the sin of abortion"
if they show a "contrite heart" during the Holy Year
of Mercy, which begins in December.

Usually only bishops can offer that absolution.
The pope has acknowledged that having an
abortion is an agonizing and painful decision.
But the Vatican insists that forgiving abortion does
not mean that the Church condones it, nor
minimizes its grave effects.
