On Sunday, World Down Syndrome Day, Pope Francis gave a stern message to abortion proponents via Twitter, writing, “Every child who a woman expects in her womb is a gift that changes a family’s history: the life of fathers and mothers, grandparents and of brothers and sisters. That child needs to be welcomed, loved and nurtured. Always!” 

The Pope emphasized the word “Always,” showing how he believes any taking of human life in the womb is contradictory to his philosophy and Church teaching.

Life News wrote, “More than ever before, people with Down syndrome are thriving and reaching new achievements. Some even attend college, own businesses and get married. And while society has become more accepting and supportive of people with disabilities outside the womb, the same cannot be said of those diagnosed with disabilities before birth. The abortion rate for unborn babies with Down syndrome is nearly 100 percent in some countries, and parents frequently report feeling pressured to abort ‘imperfect’ babies.” 

“Thanks to modern medical advances and better social support, the life expectancy for people with Down syndrome has increased dramatically in the past 50 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Many now live into their 50s and 60s,” the publication continues.

Life News reports:

However, deadly discrimination by abortion is still a huge problem. Recent reports in The Atlantic and CBS News found that nearly 100 percent of unborn babies who test positive for Down syndrome are aborted in Iceland, 95 percent in Denmark, 77 percent in France and 67 percent in the United States.

The deadly discrimination is getting worse with advances in prenatal testing. The Telegraph reports a recent article in the European Journal of Human Genetics found that the number of babies with Down syndrome born in the United Kingdom dropped 54 percent since the non-invasive prenatal screening tests became available about a decade ago.

What’s more, parents frequently report feeling pressured to abort unborn babies with Down syndrome and other disabilities. One mom recently told the BBC that she was pressured to abort her unborn daughter 15 times, including right up to the moment of her baby’s birth. Another mother from Brooklyn, New York said doctors tried to convince her to abort her unborn son for weeks before they took no for an answer.

Lately, prominent pro-abortion groups, including NARAL and Planned Parenthood, have been arguing openly that abortions are ok for any reason, including discrimination against unborn babies with Down syndrome.

“EVERY reason to have an abortion is a valid reason,” Colleen McNicholas, a Planned Parenthood abortionist, told the AP in 2019 when Missouri passed a law that bans abortions based on the unborn baby’s sex or a Down syndrome diagnosis.

The Pope’s stern message on World Down Syndrome Day reaffirmed his stance that every human being is a sacred gift from God and deserves to live—Always!

The current Pope is not really a religious leader, he is a politician. He speaks out of both sides or his mouth. I’m not sure why.

Maybe Bergoglio is thinking of becoming a Catholic at the Easter Vigil!

Will the Pope then comment on Joe Biden and his pseudo Catholicism and his support for abortion on demand and tax payer funded abortion and promoting abortion around the world? I would love to see at least some sort of response.

When the Pope speaks out about Joe Biden and the disgrace of a Catholic he is being right now then he may get some credibility back. Until then he is very questionable as the Pope. He needs to lead by example and speak up.

It sounds like some other people in the Vatican finally had a “Come to Jesus” with Francis. Now he will only speak to SATAN inside his mobile “Cone of silence”. Darn, now i can’t get Maxwell Smart out of my head. “RIGHT CHIEF, “NO KILLING BABIES TODAY!!! I’ll GET RIGHT ON SHORTENING THE NUN’S HABITS ASAP, WERE WE GOING WITH THE ROMAN SLAVE ANKLE STRAPS ON STILETTO HEELS OR THE SLING BACK PUMPS WITH THE PEEK-A-BOO TOES?” All kidding aside, this is SATAN’S POPE. There are NO GREY AREAS IN THE BIBLE. People have been saying for years that the Bible was written for the times and that things have changed blah blah blah. I actually used to get sucked into that argument when I was younger but one thing that just happened shows that it’s all true. With all the Super Powers around the world and all the technology, there is NO WAY the final days would play out in the areas of the “Old World”. Then WE had an Election that was probably the MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION IN HISTORY. The political fight between good and evil for the future of the most powerful Nation on Earth and it was STOLEN by programs downloaded from THE VATICAN with THE VATICAN’S SATELITE.

Unless you’re a Catholic you have no right to spew out hateful stuff like that. Interestingly I’ve met more true Christians who were Catholic than I have true Christians in evangelical circles. I’m an evangelical by the way. You might try reading what Jesus says about judging others before spouting off. That is if you read it at all.

All life comes from God our Father and is a sacred gift. Man has no right to go against His doings.

Seeing as the original Pope Francis has long been removed from Earth, I presume Patriots are writing this? He was a pedophile
