Pope Francis compares abortion to human sacrifices of the past
At this morning’s papal Mass, Pope Francis asked rhetorically and bitterly, “What do you think, that today
human sacrifices are not made?” He added: “Many, many people make human sacrifices and there are laws that protect them.”
The statement sounds very much like he could be referring to the abortion of unborn children, which many Christians have referred to as the new human sacrifice to the gods of convenience, money, power and more. That perspective is supported by some of the other talking points from this morning’s homily.
