Pope Francis compares abortion to 'hiring a killer'

  • Pope Francis says abortion is like hiring a'contract killer

He asked: "How can an act that suppresses innocent life be therapeutic, civil or even human?"

"[It's] like hiring a killer to solve a problem", he added.

Addressing worshippers in the Vatican, he said terminating a pregnancy was the equivalent of getting a hitman to "take out a human life to solve a problem".

Francis this year opposed a bill that would have legalised abortion in his home country of Argentina.

The pontiff told his weekly general audience at St Peter's Square that "a contradictory approach to life allows the suppression of human life in the mother's womb in order to safeguard other values".

Elsewhere in his address, the Pope complained of a "depreciation of human life" as he cited wars, exploitation and what he called a culture of wastefulness, as well as abortion. What do you think?

Many in the crowd shouted "No". You can not, it is not right to kill a human being, regardless of how small it is, to solve a problem.

"Is it just to resort to a contract killer to solve a problem?" "It is like hiring a hit man to solve a problem", he said. It also forbids euthanasia but says that a family or a patient can decide to stop using extraordinary means to keep people alive.

Shortly after becoming pontiff in 2013, Francis appeared to be cultivating a softer stance towards issues such as abortion and homosexuality, saying that the Catholic church must move on from such arguments and "heal wounds" while focussing instead on "compassion and mercy".

"Interrupting a pregnancy is like eliminating someone", the head of the Catholic Church said.
