Pope Supports Cause of Life

13May13

Perhaps for that reason they might bring us to the courts. Perhaps, for that reason, for caring for life, they might kill us,” he said. “We should think about the Christian martyrs. They killed them for preaching this Gospel of life, this Gospel that Jesus brought. But Jesus gives us the strength.”

This quote from Pope Francis in 2005 at a mass in Buenos Aires gives us a clear indication of his committment to the prolife cause.  However yesterday he showed his continuing support by joining the Italian March for Life yesterday in his pope mobile.  Over 40,000 Italians marched to raise the profile of the right to life and having the newly elected Pope Francis boosted the atmosphere no end.

The pope also gave a shout-out to the marchers from his usual weekly Regina Coeli address, briefly welcoming them and endorsing a European-wide pro-life petition against embryo research. 

The ‘One of Us’ campaign is seeking to gain 1 million signatures as part of a European Citizen Initiative. If organizers of the campaign achieve their goal the European Parliament is duty-bound to schedule a debate on the issue. 

“I invite you to keep the attention of everyone on the important issue of respect for human life from the moment of conception,” the pope told the marchers.  Read more about this great story at http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/pope-surprises-40000-italian-pro-lifers-joins-rome-march-for-life
