>Archbishop Rino Fisichella and Excommunication for Abortion

March 16, 2009

>In a letter that certainly surprised me, Roman Catholic Archbishop Rino Fisichella criticized the equal application of his own church’s law in the case of a young Brazilian girl who received an abortion (link to story about letter). Apparently, Mr. Fisichella believes that excommunication should not be automatic, since he believes that the murder of the girls unborn twins was necessary to save her “innocent life.”
Remarkably, the article doesn’t identify the odd double-standard of excommunicating the doctors and the girl’s mother, but not excommunicating the man who incestuously raped his nine-year-old step-daughter, placing the mother in the dilemma of killing her grandchildren or risking the life of her daughter.
