It explains in clear and accessible language Catholic Church teaching about abortion. Reference is made to Scripture and to recent key teaching documents. The many 'non-religious' arguments against abortion are also explained in full. A final section on how we should respond to abortion addresses the many practical implications of Catholic teaching.
