Abortion like hiring a hitman - pope

Francis blasts 'contradictory approach'

(ANSA) - Vatican City, October 10 - Pope Francis compared abortion to recruiting a murderer during his weekly general audience on Wednesday in Saint Peter's Square. "A contradictory approach permits the suppression of human life in the maternal womb in the name of safeguarding other rights," the Argentine pontiff said during a lesson on the fifth commandment: thou shall not kill.
    "But how can an act that suppresses innocent and defenceless budding human life be therapeutic, civil or simply human? "I ask you: it is right to do away with a human life to solve a problem? "Is it right to hire a hitman to solve a problem? "One cannot do this, it is not right to do away with a human being, albeit small, to solve a problem. "It is like hiring a hitman to solve a problem".
