Summary/Abstract: From its beginning the Catholic Church is condemning the act of the termination of pregnancy. Such an act is immoral and it is a sin joined with the punishment of excommunication. This punishment concerns the woman who tries to stop pregnancy and the people who persuade her to do so. In spite of many objections, the right of every innocent human being to live is not respected. It is connected with the problem of agreement when the embryo becomes a human being. The baby is treated as an object, as “something that makes life difficult”. Abortion has a long history and has been induced by various primitive and cruel methods. With the technological development various methods of abortion appeared. Nowadays they can be divided into two groups pharmacological and surgical. Abortion will never be accepted and treated as moral good even if it is done by innovational methods. None of the circumstances that forced the woman to the termination of pregnancy will justify her behavior. Such an interference into her body brings with itself both psychological and physical consequences that might be the source of evil. In order to avoid these alarming phenomenon we should take care of human life and do everything to make it intact. All these actions will help in creating the civilization of love and life and avoiding the civilization of death.
