Pope Francis has compared having an abortion to hiring a hitman to kill somebody in order to solve the problem. He stressed this kind of solution is what mafia does.
“Interrupting a pregnancy is like eliminating someone,” the Pope said in a weekly address to believers in Vatican’s Saint Peter’s Square on Wednesday. “Getting rid of a human being is like resorting to a contract killer to solve a problem.”
Francis rejected the idea that having an abortion was a human right. “How can an act that suppresses innocent and defenseless life as it blossoms be therapeutic, civil or simply human?” he argued.
The Pope said the acceptance of abortion was part of a wider “depreciation of human life,” which also included wars, exploitation and “a culture of wastefulness.”
