Sexual abuse of nuns by priests is denounced by Vatican women’s magazine

The Vatican’s women’s magazine is denouncing the sexual abuse of nuns by priests – and the resulting “scandal” of religious sisters having abortions or giving birth to children who are then not recognized by their fathers.

The February issue of “Women Church World,” a monthly magazine distributed alongside the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, was published Friday.

It cited Pope Francis’ own analysis of abuse by saying clerical power was at the root of the problem.
