Pope Francis Likens Abortion to ‘Hiring a Hit Man’

Pope Francis reaffirmed his stance on abortion following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, comparing the procedure to “hiring a hit man.”

The Pope’s comments came during an extended interview with Reuters published on Monday morning.

When asked about the court’s decision, Pope Francis said he didn’t have enough information to weigh in from a legal standpoint. But, he reiterated the Catholic Church’s stance that life begins at the moment of conception.

Pope Francis reportedly compared abortion to “hiring a hit man” and said: “I ask: Is it legitimate, is it right, to eliminate a human life to resolve a problem?”

The Pope also used the controversial comparison while speaking at an anti-abortion conference in May 2019.

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

The Holy See Press Office, which represents the Pope and the Vatican, commented on the Pope’s remark in a statement.

“It is not the first time that the Pope has said [this]. The reason is clear. The position of the Catholic Church on abortion is equally clear, to be found in the Catechism [summary of Catholic beliefs] and can certainly refer to the Catholic Church in the United States,” The Holy See Press Office told Newsweek.

Nancy Polosi is pure Evil and I believe , with all due respect, you owe a huge explanation to us “peon” devout Catholics. I am sincerely dissolutioned by this un- Catholic decision.

    Did Pelosi confess her sin of proabortion before receiving communion from the Pope?

  3. Von Potter says:

    A POPE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A “MERE” MAN AND IS SUBJECT TO NOT KNOWING ANYTHING HE SPEAKS OF POLITICALLY……TOO BAD THAT HE CAN’T STICK TO TALKING ABOUT GOD OR JESUS, INSTEAD OF TALKING ABOUT ABOUT WHAT DOES NOT RELATE TO THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT………..

  4. Clutch R. Cargo says:

    I agree with Von Potter.The Catholics are a bunch of hypocrites. Especially the pope.Wasn’t he accused of getting feely with boys?
