Eternal Salvation

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: I’m writing to you about a question one of my confirmation student asked me, (I am teaching confirmation class this year), her question was, do the babies that get aborted  go to heaven?  I honestly didn’t know the answer and I didn’t was to give her a wrong answer so I told her I would ask someone who might know more than I do.

When you have time Father Paul, to answer the question it is fine. 

God Bless you Father. 


A: The Vatican says that we have “hope” in the eternal salvation of any child who dies before he or she can be baptized. I treated this briefly in my book  Light in the Darkness. It doesn’t mention specifically those who die by abortion, but the principle would apply.
