No to abortion and euthanasia says pope

Family the sanctuary of life, Church also rejects death penalty

(ANSA) - Vatican City, April 8 - Pope Francis on Friday reaffirmed the Catholic Church's no to abortion and euthanasia and approved of conscientious objection by doctors in his post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation 'Amoris Laetitia'. "The family protects life in every stage, and also its ending.
    Therefore we remind those who work in health facilities of their moral duty to conscientious objection," he said, also stressing once again that the Church is against the death penalty.
