Forgiveness

Notwithstanding the spin that news agencies like to put on all things of God, His Holiness *did* grant all priests ability or permission to forgive the sin of abortion.

All priests have the ability to forgive all sins in confession, but excommunication required an extra layer of restoration. That extra layer, which many if not all priests in the US have already had, has been granted to all priests.

Church teaching on the sanctity of human life has not changed.
