It is not normal for a woman to kill her child.   One of the major effects of having an abortion is guilt.  The mother who has aborted her child will at times feel intense guilt for destroying her child's life.   In the Bible, God gave mankind the Fifth Commandment: Thou shalt not killWhenever anyone breaks a commandment they will feel guilt and sorrow for the evil they have done.  The Catholic Church teaches that if a woman has an abortion she has committed a mortal sin.  Any mortal sin separates us from God and the penalty for mortal sin is hell.  See the teaching on HELL.

  The Bible says that:  "Blessed are those who will have washed their robes clean, so that they will have the right to feed on the tree of life and can come through the gates into the city.  Others must stay outside:  dogs, fortunetellers, and the sexually immoral, murderers, idolaters, and everyone of false speech and false life." Revelation 22:  14-15.

    To remove the sin from the soul and receive forgiveness the woman and man involved in the abortion should go to confession as quickly as possible.  The doctor who performs the abortion has also committed a grave sin against God and is subject to the judgement of God, which will be going to HELL unless he repents and stops doing abortions. 

    WE ARE ALL SINNERS. WHEN YOU FALL INTO A SIN, YOU CONFESS THE SIN, AND YOU MOVE ON IN LIFE LEAVING YOU PAST BEHIND.  ONCE YOU HAVE CONFESSED YOUR SINS TO A PRIEST, GOD HAS FORGIVEN THEM AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS RESTORED.
