Nothing says “We’re morons” like failing to read anything but made up headlines. Epic fail in the due diligence department.
Taking them seriously for a moment (I know, it’s difficult), I wonder why the people at NARAL would send our Holy Father a “thank you” card. Perhaps it’s for this:
Each one of us is called to recognize in the fragile human being the face of the Lord, who in his human flesh experienced indifference and loneliness to which we often condemn the poorest, be it in developing countries, be it in well-off societies. Every unborn child, condemned unjustly to being aborted, has the face of the Lord, who before being born, and then when he was just born, experienced the rejection of the world. And every elderly person, even if he/she is sick or at the end of his/her days, bears in him/herself the face of Christ. They cannot be discarded! – Pope Francis, 20/09/2013 Address to the International Federation of Catholic Medical Associations and Catholic gynecologists
