Priest helps “mentally retarded” girl have abortion

Abortionist Henry Morgentaler describes the following case in his book.

“Muriel is mentally retarded, but well-developed physically. She lives in the country with her parents. One day when she was home alone, her uncle seduced her. Her mother decided to have her aborted after consulting their parish priest who considered the abortion justified under such circumstances and showed his moral support by accompanying them to the abortion clinic.”
