Pope Francis on the Right to Life

“Every child who, rather than being born, is
condemned unjustly to being aborted, bears the face of
Jesus Christ, bears the face of the Lord, who even
before he was born, and then just after birth,

person … even if he is ill or at the end of his days,
bears the face of Christ. They cannot be discarded, as
the ‘culture of waste’ suggests!”
