Doesn’t change a thing for me. He is still saying that we shouldn’t speak of abortion because we must show how much we love, not because we are mean and old-fashioned. He is certainly implying (at least) that to speak of abortion outright is to make others think we are mean and old-fashioned.
This is just another example of the Church hierarchy caring more about what others think of the Church than boldly proclaiming the meany, traditional Truth.
Except that he didn't say that.
