Fr. Joseph Honeycutt (here) has a series of excerpts from “Faith and Humor” by Maya Kucherskaya. The following is to someone who wanted to have an abortion, the abbot would say …
“You should give birth to the baby and then leave it in a carriage out in the cold, as if it were an accident. It will scream for a bit and then freeze to death, and all will be well. It’s a lesser sin than abortion.”
“Why is it a lesser sin?”
“Try it, you’ll see.”
But no one tried.
