Pope Francis: Protection of Life

Updated on November 8, 2015

Defend Life at Every Stage of Development

Surrounded by controversy and varying opinions, ranging from genuine followers to contradicting hypocrites, Pope Francis spoke out against abortion through his emphasis on the sacredness of life. He addressed Congress while on his tour in America, which was necessary especially concerning the ongoing, deceptive scandal of Planned Parenthood. He insisted that they should support all forms of life beginning with conception, and additionally advised Congress to “Defend life at every stage of development.” This is definitely the inclusion of the conceived unborn. He acknowledges their significance and courageously defends all life regardless of attacks from the opposing liberals taking the facts out of context.

Fake Facade

Liberals cannot deny the importance of Pope Francis’ opinion. They bow down to the Pope in front of his face, hoping for his blessing, yet many are completely against his view of life. Some pretend to uphold the value of life, but behind the scenes they fund the unscrupulous crimes instigated through Planned Parenthood. It is false and uncouth for hypocrites to genuflect to the Pope in an attempt to obtain his approval. He does not seem to be impressed with egotistical advocates of evil ideologies or supporters of unjustified corruption.

Excessive Acceptance

Excessive acceptance of immoral issues has a detrimental effect upon society and the world overall. This tolerance is evidently reflected through the callous voting against defunding Planned Parenthood. This contradicts all that the Pope is signifying pertaining to the sanctity of life.


American Representatives

He stated that “Congress, as a representative of the American people, has the responsibility to protect and preserve the dignity of its fellow citizens in the tireless and demanding pursuit of the common good, for this is the chief aim of all politics”. It is unfortunate that the liberals in Congress seem to forget the fact that they are actually supposed to be representing Americans for the benefit of everyone involved, including unborn babies.

Pope Francis' Reaction to Abortion


Unborn Babies Need Protection

Although he didn’t directly address the significant issue of abortion, which I believe he should have done, he nevertheless indirectly presented his stance against abortion through his emphasis pertaining to the sacredness of life.

Pope Francis' Reaction to Preserving Life


Pope Francis Addresses Congress

We Are Created in God's Image

He spoke about how Moses had a influence in "protecting all life, leading us directly to God, and to the transcendent dignity of the human being." He emphasizes that "by means of the law we need to protect the image and likeness fashioned by God on every human face." We are all created in the image of God, therefore, if you murder a baby, you are in essence murdering part of God.

Amazing American Spirit

He also gave recognition to great American spirit which encourages, as well as enables people to survive hardships and move forward again with dignity.He mentioned four great Americans : Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., Dorothy Day, and Thomas Merton, and how they all strived for liberty and equality. He spoke of "freedom which requires love of the common good, and cooperation in a spirit of subsidiarity and solidarity". In order to have liberty, you must first be given the opportunity of life, otherwise, freedom is futile.

The Golden Rule

He recited the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. He continued to declare: "If we want life, let us give life". Similarly, Ronald Reagan ingeniously stated in the past: "I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born".


The Family is Essential

The Pope acknowledged those who face difficult situations often derived from immaturity on behalf of adults. He exclaimed how essential the family has been to the building of this country. Additionally, he confessed the fact that he "cannot hide his concern for the family which is threatened perhaps as never before from within and without, especially the most vulnerable youth" Those who sometimes live in despair from violence and abuse, the Pope recognized their problems are our problems. The struggles of the unborn should be perceived as are our struggles.


Abolish Abortion, Support the Family Structure

He affirms that our culture pressures people to not start a family because they might either perceive limited possibilities for the future, or there are too many options available for some people that they are discouraged. He encourages a family life to proceed and have hope.

A great family is essential to the progress of the past, present and future of our amazing country and the world. It should be fortified starting with the abolishment of abortion.

Pope Francis loves and supports children and those with special needs, which proves that he is against abortion and does not discriminate against differences. He confirms that babies are never a mistake.


Work Together for All to Benefit

He kept reiterating the fact that people need to work in cooperation. In my opinion, the slaughtering and aborting of babies destroys any effort of the pursuit of life and liberty, and any chance of togetherness because of those who turn their backs on true justice for the unborn.

Pope Francis Lovingly Speaks the Truth

Regardless of the vast, conflicting political involvement, religious views, or social outlooks, emerging from listeners who either support or repudiate his beliefs, the Pope lovingly speaks the truth. His compassion is evident through his treatment of all human life. His example substantiates his beliefs, as his faith coincides with his actions.
