Is Francis’ Condemnation of Abortion A Prelude For Another Betrayal of the Faith?

Pope Francis' strong condemnation of abortion and linking it to hiring a hitman (October 10) could be a bad omen, Maria Madise of the Pro-Life organisation SPUC has warned.

She reminds on LifeSiteNews.com of “a consistent pattern of strong pro-life statements” by Francis which are then followed by “very troubling betrayals of the faith”.

An example: Francis first condemned abortion as “crime” and shortly after said that contraception was [allegedly] licit under certain circumstances.

Further, Francis called the murderous Italian abortionist Emma Bonino one of Italy’s “forgotten greats” and honoured the Dutch pro-abortion activist Liliane Ploumen with the Pontifical Order of Saint Gregory.

IHMO, the recent statements on abortion by the pope are meant to distract from the synod.
