Milo: Close, But No Banana

Milo, a creature of Breitbart, quotes Thomas Aquinas.

...I’m quoting from the Church’s ‘Angelic Doctor,’ St. Thomas Aquinas,” he continued. “Human laws do not forbid all vices, from which the virtuous abstain, but only the more grievous vices, from which it is possible for the majority to abstain.”...

So far, so good.

But he goes astray almost immediately:

...“In other words, it’s not wise to punish with human law everything that may be opposed to the natural law. That means I can say it’s wrong to take innocent life, without having to say that we should outlaw abortions in every single case,”...

Wrong, Milo.  The Church has defined abortion as an intrinsic evil.  It is always wrong, in every case, period.  Abortion falls under the "...more grievous vice, from which it is possible for the majority to abstain" category.

We'll give you credit for a good start, though.
