Where do aborted babies go and if Limbo how do they get from there to heaven? Thank you.
Answer by Judie Brown on 12/17/2008:
When Pope John Paul II wrote The Gospel of Life, he taught the following:
"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion. The Church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and she does not doubt that in many cases it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. To the same Father and his mercy you can with sure hope entrust your child."
And as Dr. David Reardon has written,
Thus, even if God's justice somehow demands that unbaptized babies must be denied the fullness of Heaven, in God's mercy these same souls could still rest in the arms of Christ, if it is His desire to be with them. Furthermore, if these aborted children are confined to Limbo yet "living in the Lord," because Christ comes to them, we must also remember that, as Christ told his apostles, "whoever has seen me, has seen the Father" (John 14:9). So, even if the unbaptized are unable to see our Triune God, in all his glory, face-to-face like the sun blazing in the fullness of the day, it appears likely that in the face of Jesus they can at least enjoy the glory of the dawn.
