ABSTRACT
In the article, the author discusses the moral issue concerning the abortion of unborn children that could turn into a big social problem in Europe. He claims that the practice of abortion is a wound in Europe's moral spirit with its Hellenic and Judeo-Christian culture. He cites that the issue confronting Europe could be called the "New Abolitionism for Europe." He calls for respect and care to be given to human life without excluding anyone.
