Pope Blesses unborn baby

He connected abortion to social justice saying that the profit mentality and the throwaway culture have led to, “calls for the elimination of human beings, above all if they are physically or socially weaker. Our response to that mentality is a decisive and unhesitating ‘yes’ to life.” Read it in The Catholic Herald here: Pope condemns abortion as product of throwaway culture
