Pope Francis compares abortion to “hiring a hitman” and he says it can never be condoned


Pope Francis compares abortion to “hiring a hitman” and he says it can never be condoned

By Julio Severo
Pope Francis has compared abortion to “hiring a hitman” during a pro-life conference at the Vatican.
“Abortion can never be condoned, even when the unborn baby is gravely sick or malformed,” Pope Francis said in the pro-life conference.
He urged doctors to support families to carry all pregnancies to term.
Francis claimed his opposition to abortion was not for religious issues, but for human reasons.
He said: “Is it licit to throw away a life to resolve a problem? Is it licit to hire a hitman to resolve a problem?”
Francis disagreed with abortions done on grounds of prenatal testing which reveals problems with the unborn baby.
He said a human being is “never incompatible with life.”
Francis said that unborn babies should be looked after for as long as possible.
“Taking care of these children helps parents to grieve and not only think of it as a loss, but as a step on a path taken together,” Francis said.
The conference was organized by the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life, and the “Heart in a Drop” Foundation, which works to welcome “children born in conditions of extreme fragility.”
He told the crowd every child is “a gift that changes the history of a family… and this child needs to be welcomed, loved and cared for.”
He said often the “mere suspicion of disease can change the experience of pregnancy,” and even risk “throwing women and couples” into a “deep despair.”
But “the evolution of every disease is always subjective and often not even doctors know how it will manifest itself in the individual,” said the Pope.
Francis has spoken out strongly against abortion. In June 2018 he likened abortion to Nazi eugenics — saying parents should accept the children God gives them.
At a meeting of an Italian pro-family association he told those gathered that as a child he was horrified to hear stories from his teacher about children “thrown from the mountain” if they were born with malformations.
“Today we do the same thing,” he said. “Last century, the whole world was scandalized by what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today, we do the same thing but with white gloves.”
In spite of the pope’s pro-life stances, there is a fascist esoteric movement led by Steve Bannon seeking to undermine him.
