Pope Francis is temporarily allowing Roman Catholic priests to absolve women who've had abortions, and those who've helped them, as long as they admit their wrongdoing and are truly sorry for what they've done.
The pontiff says he will allow priests the "discretion to absolve of the sin of abortion those who have procured it and who, with contrite heart, seek forgiveness for it," in a lengthy letter published online by the Vatican on Tuesday that clarifies the change.
