It is fantastic to hear and read that Pope Francis continues to keep the horror of abortion in the public domain making sure that we can never forget that we are taking the life of an unborn child during anabortion. It is so important that the leader of the Church that stands against abortion, continues to show that even though abortion has become part of everyday life, abortion is the horrific taking of life.

The pope thanked the Movimento per la Vita, one of Italy’s leading political pro-life groups, for their work, urging them to continue “with courage and love” for life “in all its phases.”
“It is therefore necessary to reiterate the strongest opposition to any direct attack on life, especially innocent and defenseless, and her unborn child in the womb is the innocent par excellence,” the pope told the gathering of politicians and pro-life activists at the Vatican today.
“If you look at life as something that is consumed,” the pope said, “it will also be something that sooner or later you can throw away, with abortion to begin with.”
Human life, however, is “a gift from God” and if it is accepted as such, “then you have before you a valuable and intangible asset, to be protected by all means and not to be discarded.”
