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,"77 "by the very commission of the offense,"78 and subject to the conditions provided by Canon Law.79 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.<quoted text>
Please provide a link to your evidence "of a woman being excommunicated" because of what you claim will happen.
Or is this excommunication, just a mind-f**k from those who promote it to those who commit the act?
I think your story is bologna. I've never heard of any Catholic being excommunicated. Surely there are no formalities.
Then again - you like to promote contradiction within your religion.....
Catholicism - "Repent and come home"
For a person to have an abortion, and then they repent their act, seems to mean that they did everything required.
But yet you still think the so-called Catholic "Church" won't forgive certain people at certain times.
But when you compare it to the pedophile priests - it becomes a whole different ballgame of keeping a blind-eye.
You are a fraud.
Can. 1398 A person who procures a completed abortion incurs a latae sententiae excommunication.
1463 Certain particularly grave sins incur excommunication, the most severe ecclesiastical penalty, which impedes the reception of the sacraments and the exercise of certain ecclesiastical acts, and for which absolution consequently cannot be granted, according to canon law, except by the Pope, the bishop of the place or priests authorized by them. In danger of death any priest, even if deprived of faculties for hearing confessions, can absolve from every sin and excommunication.69
Don't like it ? Don't be Catholic. Easy enough, no?
