Pope Francis: Human Life is Always 'Sacred' and 'Of Quality'

From Kristi Burton Brown, Live Action News:

In the wake of the U.S. House’s passage of the 20-week abortion ban, abortion advocates are calling something “cruel” and “disgusting.”

You’d think the cruel and disgusting things to discuss would be dismemberment abortion (which, yes, literally does rip babies apart, piece by piece), the thousands of these kind of abortions that are performed around the nation every year, or perhaps all the babies who are currently aborted and left to die after they survive.

Those are things that the majority of Americans think is disgusting, when they take the time to really consider it.

But abortion advocates aren’t using “cruel” and “disgusting” for these things. Instead, they’re using them to describe the bill itself, largely because it wouldn’t allow exceptions for parents who want to abort based on a diagnosed disability. Instead, the bill would allow babies with disabilities to live.

...And it’s not just the babies with diseases that are an almost guaranteed diagnosis of early death – like anencephaly – who are being aborted. It’s also the babies who could live a relatively long life. For instance, many people with cystic fibrosis now live well into their 30s. And yet, in a Kaiser study, 86.9 percent of babies diagnosed with cystic fibrosis were aborted, including 66.6 percent of the babies predicted to have a less severe form of the disease. (Note that in all cases, the severity is predicted, but doctors do misdiagnose, especially by over-diagnosing the severity.)

Babies with Down syndrome are also aborted at a huge rate. Newer studies indicate the rate falls somewhere between 67 percent and 85 percent. These, too, are people who can get an education and in some cases, hold a job and even get married or live without their families in a group home or a special apartment.
Pope Francis, the extremely popular pope with Leftists, is not in agreement with Leftists when it comes to their pro-abortion agenda.

It's very clear. These Leftists are ignoring the statements of Pope Francis when it comes to the sanctity of life.

From Vatican Insider:
“Fidelity to the Gospel of life and respect for life as a gift from God sometimes require choices that are courageous and go against the current, which in particular circumstances, may become points of conscientious objection,” Francis said in today’s address to the Italian Catholic Doctors’ Association. “The dominant thinking sometimes suggests a "false compassion", that which retains that it is: helpful to women to promote abortion; an act of dignity to obtain euthanasia; a scientific breakthrough to "produce" a child and to consider it to be a right rather than a gift to welcome; or to use human lives as guinea pigs presumably to save others,” the Pope said in his speech.

Instead, the Pope pointed out, “the compassion of the Gospel is that which accompanies in times of need, that is, the compassion of the Good Samaritan, who "sees", "has compassion", approaches and provides concrete help.” “Human life is always sacred and always "of quality". There is no human life that is more sacred than another, as there is no human life qualitatively more significant than another, only by virtue of resources, rights, great social and economic opportunities.” Francis underlined that human life “is always sacred, valuable, and inviolable.”
Pope Francis, hero to Leftists, says, "Human life is always sacred and always 'of quality'. There is no human life that is more sacred than another, as there is no human life qualitatively more significant than another...."

Paying attention, Leftists?

Are you listening?
