Pope Francis: Oppose Abortion, Protect Human Life From Conception

inter. news

by Steven Ertelt | The Vatican | LifeNews.com | 8/12/13 12:46 PM

Pope Francis articulated a defense of human life from abortion: restating the Catholic Church’s longstanding opposition to the snuffing out of human life before birth and explaining that it must be protected from conception.

From an international news report:

“Human life must always be defended from its beginning in the womb and must be recognised as a gift of God that guarantees the future of humanity,” Vatican Radio cited Francis as saying in a message to mark Brazil’s National Family week.

The Argentinian pontiff’s remarks came in the wake of a new law approved last week by Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff allowing its public healthcare system to administer the “morning-after pill” to rape victims.

Last month the pope went to Brazil on his first foreign trip as pontiff, drawing crowds of millions in various cities.

In Monday’s message, Francis urged Brazilian parents to teach their children “the fundamental truths of life and human love” amid a “throw-away culture”.

“Parents must convey to their children the knowledge that human life must always be defended, right from its onset in the maternal womb,” the pope stated.

In a letter dated 6 August from Pope Francis to Brazilian families marking National Families Week, the Holy Father says:

“In a particular way, faced with the culture of waste, that relativizes the value of human life, parents are called to pass on to their children the understanding that this must always be defended, already in the mother’s womb, recognizing in it a gift from God and an assurance of mankind’s future, but also in the care shown to the elderly, particularly to grandparents, who are the living memory of a people and the transmitters of life’s wisdom.”

And last week, the text of a letter from the Pope to the Knights of Columbus was published that also contained instructions for Catholics on pro-life issues:

Conscious of the specific responsibility which the lay faithful have for the Church’s mission, he invites each Knight, and every Council, to bear witness to the authentic nature of marriage and the family, the sanctity and inviolable dignity of human life, and the beauty and truth of human sexuality. In this time of rapid social and cultural changes, the protection of God’s gifts cannot fail to include the affirmation and defense of the great patrimony of moral truths taught by the Gospel and confirmed by right reason, which serve as the bedrock of a just and well-ordered society.
