Catholic Voter Guide: Abortion vs. Death Penalty

Abortion has been clearly defined by the church as a moral evil, which is never accepted under any circumstances or any justification.  The church’s teaching on the death penalty does not rise to that level.

Catechism of the Catholic Church

  • 2271:  Abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.
  • 2267: The traditional teaching of the Church does not exclude recourse to the death penalty.
