Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

She refused to have an abortion and her son, the Archbishop of Riga, will be forever thankful

2014-10-26

Fifty nine years ago, the Archbishop of Riga,  Zbigevs Stankevis, almost died. When his mother was expecting him, everyone told her she should have an abortion.

ARCH. ZBIGEVS STANCKEVICS 
Archbishop of Riga (Latvia)
"She was forty years old and one doctor proposed to make abortion. She told my mother: 'You are old and it is not a wise decision to have one more child.'” 

His mother decided to have her baby. Eventually that young boy became the Archbishop of Riga.

Hundreds of women in Latvia faced the same dilemma of his mother faced decades ago. In 2002, the government passed a pro-abortion law. In response, he wrote an article titled,  "Why was I lucky?”

ARCH. ZBIGEVS STANCKEVICS 
Archbishop of Riga (Latvia)
"I could share my personal experience because it was proposed to kill me in my mother's womb. But my mother rejected it and for this reason I am alive. I can live to fulfill my vocation and my mission in the world. And if I was killed in my mother´s womb, today there would be another Archbishop in Riga.”

There are challenging pregnancies, but the Archbishop highlights that there are other options, other than abortion, for mothers dealing with difficult pregnancies.
