The Pope has compared abortion to Nazi eugenics

During his speech, Francis tossed his prepared remarks, telling participants that a prepared text "seems a bit cold", according to Italian newspaper La Stampa.

Pope Francis leaves after an audience with an association of people honored by the Italian Presidency for their commitment to their work, in the Paul VI Hall at the Vatican, Friday, June 15, 2018.

The 81-year-old pontiff lamented couples who choose not to have any children, and those who resort to pre-natal testing to see if their baby has any malformations or genetic problems. "Today, we do the same thing but with white gloves", the agencies quoted Francis as saying.

The pope, the paper reported, said it is "painful" to think that society would accept the killing of children simply because they are sick or disabled, but this is the current mentality.

Although Pope Francis has built a reputation as one of the most tolerant heads of the Catholic Church in recent history, some of his latest comments against abortion reveal Francis is definitely keeping up with the status quo of his predecessors.

It is estimated that 400,000 people were forcibly sterilised under Nazi eugenics, while another 70,000 under the euthunasia program. "To have an easy life, they get rid of an innocent".

"Today one speaks of "diversified' families: different types of family.but the human family as the image of God, man and woman, is only one".

The Jesuit pope has integrated his opposition to abortion into his broader condemnation of what he calls today's "throwaway culture".

And this begins with small things, such as marriage preparation, he said, adding that "it's important to love each other and receive the sacrament, and then have the party you want".

It comes as the Pope prepares to attend the World Meeting of Families in Dublin in August, in the wake of the referendum in the Republic to relax the law on abortion.
