NATIONAL REVIEW RESPONSE
Tuesday, September 1, 2015, Pope Francis released his letter about abortion and mercy in which he allows all priests to grant forgiveness to women who have elected to have an abortion and profoundly regret the procedure. The Holy See has opened the door for women who have had abortions – an act considered a grave sin by the Catholic church – to be absolved if they express contrition and seek forgiveness from their priest. “The forgiveness of God cannot be denied to one who has repented,” the pontiff wrote in an extraordinary letter that was released by the Vatican on Tuesday. “I am well aware of the pressure that has led them to this decision. I know that it is an existential and moral ordeal,” he added.
The following day, the National Review web site posted a variety of responses to the Pope's statement. Kathleen Beckman was asked to provide a response to help readers better understand the intent of the letter.
