[April 13, 2014] Pope Francis1,2 has been very vocal about greed and corruption and has asked Christians to give up their quest for material goods and to help to care for the poor. He also has spoken about the right to life of unborn children. The Pope has stepped forward as a world leader of morality and human rights.
At a recent meeting with an Italian pro-life organization on April 11, he called the right to life the “first and most fundamental right.”3 He called abortion and infanticide “unspeakable crimes.” The Pope said that this right should not be subject to ideological convictions or prejudiced by economic wealth. This scares a lot of people and we are starting to see verbal attacks on the Pope. Regardless of our view of the Pope’s beliefs, he certainly has a compelling case that should be listened to.
Today, we offer respect to Pope Francis and the ethical leadership he is providing for the world.
