Reuters reports that Pope Francis on Wednesday compared having an abortion to “hiring a “hit man” to eliminate a problematic person. The comments are sure to be welcomed by conservative Catholics who have accused the pontiff of not speaking out enough on “cultural war” issues. Abortion is a raging political battle in a number of countries, including the United States. There many conservatives hope the Supreme Court will eventually overturn the landmark 1973 ruling known as Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion. Francis made his off-the-cuff comments on abortion in an address to tens of thousands of people gathered in St. Peter’s Square for his weekly general audience. The comments were some of his toughest to date. The pope denounced what he called the contradiction of allowing “the suppression of human life in the mother’s womb in the name of safeguarding other rights”. He said, “But how can an act that suppresses an innocent and helpless life that is germinating be therapeutic, civilized or even simply human?"
