The lesser sin

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.
