Wojtyla's Women: How They Shaped The Life of Pope John Paul II and Changed the Catholic ChurchKarol Wojtyła made it abundantly clear that abortion is murder and a perversion of science. In 1977, he told parishioners in Zakopane, in southern Poland, that abortion represents a “shameful science,” even if “scientific methods” are used to murder a not-yet-born defenseless human being.” Twenty years later, he concluded, “a civilization, which rejects the defenseless, deserves to be called barbarian, even if it has great economic, technological, artistic, and scientific achievements” – a clear reference to Western societies.
