On Thursday, September 19, an article was released in Jesuit publications. In this interview Pope Francis discussed the church’s emphasis on controversial social topics. He suggested instead a merciful and less judgmental church.
The next day The Holy Father met with a group of Catholic gynecologists. Here are two strong anti-abortion things he told them:
1. Abortion is a symptom of our “throwaway culture.” He urged them to refuse to perform the procedure.
2. “Every child that isn’t born, but is unjustly condemned to be aborted, has the face of Jesus Christ, has the face of the Lord.”
Way to go, Papa!
