    There is no such thing as therapeutic abortion.

    Abortion is murder, not therepy. Euthanasia is murder. Blood transfusion is ok.

    I'm fine with all of them. I have no problem with therapeutic abortion because, you know it's therapeutic. Euthanasia doesn't bother me either. Blood transfusion? Why would anybody have a problem with that?

    I don't see anything therapeutic about an abortion. As for euthanasia and blood transfusion they are perfectly okay.

    <<What is your stand on therapeutic abortion,>>

    There is no such thing as a "therapeutic" abortion.

    My stand is the Church's stand. The Catechism teaches:

    2271 Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:

    You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.

    God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.

    2272 Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life. "A person who procures a completed abortion incurs excommunication latae sententiae," "by the very commission of the offense," and subject to the conditions provided by Canon Law. The Church does not thereby intend to restrict the scope of mercy. Rather, she makes clear the gravity of the crime committed, the irreparable harm done to the innocent who is put to death, as well as to the parents and the whole of society.

    2322 From its conception, the child has the right to life. Direct abortion, that is, abortion willed as an end or as a means, is a "criminal" practice (GS 27 § 3), gravely contrary to the moral law. The Church imposes the canonical penalty of excommunication for this crime against human life.

    2274 Since it must be treated from conception as a person, the embryo must be defended in its integrity, cared for, and healed, as far as possible, like any other human being.

    Prenatal diagnosis is morally licit, "if it respects the life and integrity of the embryo and the human fetus and is directed toward its safe guarding or healing as an individual. . . . It is gravely opposed to the moral law when this is done with the thought of possibly inducing an abortion, depending upon the results: a diagnosis must not be the equivalent of a death sentence."

    <<euthanasia>>

    2324 Intentional euthanasia, whatever its forms or motives, is murder. It is gravely contrary to the dignity of the human person and to the respect due to the living God, his Creator.

    2277 Whatever its motives and means, direct euthanasia consists in putting an end to the lives of handicapped, sick, or dying persons. It is morally unacceptable.

    Thus an act or omission which, of itself or by intention, causes death in order to eliminate suffering constitutes a murder gravely contrary to the dignity of the human person and to the respect due to the living God, his Creator. The error of judgment into which one can fall in good faith does not change the nature of this murderous act, which must always be forbidden and excluded.

    <<and blood transfusion?>>

    The Church does not object to blood transfusions, if that's what you're asking.

  • Well it says(the religion-christian) that is not good to share your blood with someone else;but I think that if you can save a life by donating your blood,it's not a sin,it's a good action.

    I think it's great that we have the people and tools to do all of the above in a hospital.

    Imagine if people had to do these things by themselves, they'd totally mess it up!
