The other type of excommunication is juridicial excommunication, and that requires a Bishop or other person with proper authority to judge the particulars of a case, and to issue a sentence of excommunication according to that judgment.
Sorry Ron, unfortunately a priest told me this wrong info
...Anyway, does abortion lead to automatic excommunication?
A report says yes ( http://themoderatevoice.com/39895/va...d-in-abortion/
