Pope on defending life: It's not just about religion, it's about science and reason

2013-09-20

The Pope met with the International Federation of Catholic Medical Associations. The group came to Rome for a conference on maternal health and gynecology. During his remarks, the Pope brought up once again the issue of a "throwaway culture.”   


POPE FRANCIS 
"A general mentality of what's useful, the 'throwaway culture,' that today enslaves the hearts and the intelligence of so many, comes at a great price. It demands the elimination of human beings, especially if they are physically or socially weak. Our response to this mentality is a 'yes' to life, directly and without hesitation.” 

In his lively speech, the Pope added that the right to life is the first right of any person, and that each child denied the right to life because of an abortion has the face of God. For this reason, the Pope asked to the doctors present to look after the human life in all its stages

POPE FRANCIS
"My dear friends, You are called to care for human life from its beginning stages. Remind everyone, through actions and words, that in all its phases and at any age, life is always sacred and always of quality. It's not just a matter of faith, but of reason and science!” 

Pope Francis closed off the audience with an invitation for medical professionals to help out in the birth of new human beings. A healthcare system is not just measured by efficiency, the Pope added, but also by love and attention to how people are cared for
