Pope Francis has compared having an abortion to hiring a “contract killer”. “Interrupting a pregnancy is like eliminating someone,” Francis said in his address to worshippers on Wednesday. “Getting rid of a human being is like resorting to a contract killer to solve a problem.” “Is it just to resort to a contract killer to solve a problem?” he asked, to which the crowd shouted: “no”.
Interesting analogy. And sure to enrage his leftist base (which up till recently had nothing but praise for his ‘openness’).
