Why Abortion Is Not A Religion Problem, Pope Francis explain

The problem of abortion is not primarily a question of religion, but of human ethics, first and foremost of any religious denomination.

Pope Francis in response to the legalization of Abortion in his native country, Argentina, said that abortion is not primarily a religious problem of human ethics.

Argentina President, Alberto Fernandez, made the announcement earlier this month that he would present a bill to legalize abortion, with the belief that it would help save lives by preventing women from resorting to unsafe, clandestine procedures.

The Pope gave this explanation when he was writing to the protesting woman who cried out to him for help over the proposed legalization of the abortion process by the Argentine government.

Francis has strongly upheld Catholic doctrine forbidding abortion, denouncing it as part of today's 'throwaway culture' that doesn't respect the dignity of the unborn, the weak, or the elderly.

Although abortion is still highly currently criminalize in the country except in the case of rape or risk to the mother's health.


He, therefore, urges the protecting woman to continue with their protest until their grief is properly addressed.
