Media Omit Pope's Abortion Remarks

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on how the media covered Pope Francis’ comments on abortion this week:

On October 10, in his weekly address before the general audience at St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis spoke about the evil of abortion. Going off script, he said procuring abortion is like hiring a hit man to kill. The media in the United States showed little interest in reporting his comments.

The pope said that to kill an unborn baby “in the name of protecting other rights” was a contradiction. He questioned, “Is it right to snuff out a human life to solve a problem? Is it right to hire a hit man to solve a problem? No, you can’t. It’s not right to take out a human being, a small one, too, in order to fix a problem. It is like hiring a professional killer.”
