Vatican leader, Pope Francis has lauded the U.S. Supreme Court for legally standing for ‘life’ and reversing abortion stance.
The US Supreme court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, which formerly made abortion legal in the United States.
The ruling was announced on On Friday, June 24, drawing widespread condemnation among liberals.
The Vatican previously compared the act of abortion to “hiring a hit man”.
However, he has steered the Catholic Church to see pro-life as a larger issue than just abortion.
According to a statement by the Vatican’s editorial director, Andrea Tornielli, “Being for life, always, for example, means being concerned if the mortality rates of women due to motherhood increase.
“Being for life, always, means asking how to help women welcome new life.
“Being for life, always, also means defending it against the threat of firearms, which unfortunately have become a leading cause of death of children and adolescents in the U.S.”
The Vatican’s Academy for Life has posted the day before that, “The fact that a large country with a long democratic tradition has changed its position on this issue also challenges the whole world.”
The head of the Pontifical Academy for Life, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia reportedly described the Supreme Court’s decision as a “powerful invitation to reflect” on the value of life in a society that “is losing passion for life.”
He added, “By choosing life, our responsibility for the future of humanity is at stake.”
