‘Abortion is not okay, it’s like hiring a hit man’ – Pope Francis

 Pope Francis, has shared his thoughts on abortion saying it should not be condoned in the church as it is like hiring a hit-man to take a life.

Pope Francis said this while speaking to a Vatican-sponsored anti-abortion conference.

In his words;

“Is it licit to throw away a life to resolve a problem?” he asked. “Is it licit to hire a hitman to resolve a problem?”

Francis stamped his foot against abortion based on prenatal testing, saying a human being is “never incompatible with life.”

‘Even those babies destined to die at birth or soon thereafter deserve to receive medical care in the womb, ‘Francis said, adding that their parents must get support so they don’t feel isolated and afraid.

‘While one can argue about using medical resources this way, there is value to it for the parents,’ he said.

“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.
