Pope Francis likens abortion to hiring 'hitman', says it's never acceptable

Fox News Flash top headlines for May 25 are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com

Pope Francis on Saturday likened abortion to hiring a hitman and said the procedure can never be condoned, even if the unborn child is gravely sick or likely to die.

Francis made the comments during a pro-life conference sponsored by the Vatican. He stressed that abortion isn’t a religious issue but a human one.

“Is it licit to throw away a life to resolve a problem? Is it licit to hire a hitman to resolve a problem?”
— Pope Francis


The pope also condemned abortion decisions based on prenatal testing, stating that a human being is “never incompatible with life.”

This applies to those babies who are destined to die at birth or soon after, he said. He stressed the importance of providing medical care to such babies in the womb and support their parents so they don’t afraid and isolated.

“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 latest comments follow Pope’s previous condemnations of abortion, though he struck a somewhat more conciliatory tone towards the woman who had the procedure and made it easier for them to be absolved of the sin of abortion.

His comments also came in the wake of a raging abortion debate in the U.S., where multiple states severely limited or banned abortion after six weeks, prompting outcry by pro-choice advocates.

The pope is right about his hitman analogy. (with one exception)

But, he has zero power to help or hinder anyone from being absolved from their sin.
Only a person truly penitent and begging GOD for forgiveness can be absolved.
ONLY GOD knows your heart, not the pope, or any priest, or preacher, or elder, or family member.

Lloyd, I'm including ALL churches, so don't start a rant.:tango_face_smile_bi

Just about the first thing he's said that I agree with. ALL of our Pastors and Preachers need to be saying that. CHARLIE.

Good for him..keep up the good work, Mr Pope..

The really phony ones are the Dems who claim to be solid Catholics...and insist on making excuses as to why they continue to support baby killing.

I think about every parish in the country has a few of those hypocrites and the name on the sign out front doesn't much matter. Gays are another thing that Christians tend to look the other way with. I was in church last summer during tourist season and our priest made a comment about how homosexuality was against God and two women sitting together got up and left. What did they expect? I don't understand why anyone that believes abortion or homosexuality is expectable behavior would even step foot into a Christian church. Sad thing is some entire religions turn a blind eye to it and still want to be called Christian.
