Earlier this month, I reported on a Catholic nun in Arizona who approved the abortion of an 11-week old baby. In doing so, she thereby excommunicated herself. Her local bishop affirmed that, but some thought he was misjudging things. Click here for the original post.
Last week, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued a statement in support of the local bishop. They outline the difference between direct abortion and indirect abortion, they discuss moral culpability in both instances, and they give medical scenarios of both.
