Pope Francis spoke out against abortion and euthanasia in Cuba yesterday, criticizing disregard for human life in two separate addresses.
“Children aren’t loved, they’re killed before being born,” the Holy Father told a group of young Cubans in Havana. “The elderly are thrown away, because they don’t produce.”
The pope also took the opportunity to revisit his denunciation of a “throwaway culture.”
Also on Sunday, speaking to a gathering of Cuban bishops, priests, seminarians and religious, he implored society to defend its “smallest” and most vulnerable, including the unborn.
Pope Francis warned as well of the consequences of using prenatal testing to screen for selective abortion, with some parents choosing to “return it (the baby) before it comes into the world.”
