 Earlier this month, Pope Francis spoke out strongly against the abortion culture, saying abortion is part of the same “throwaway” culture that wastes both people and food.

“We cannot be indifferent to those suffering from hunger, especially children, when we think of how much food is wasted every day in many parts of the world immersed in what I have often termed ‘the throwaway culture,’” Francis said.

That culture, he said, also affects the unborn child.

“For example, it is frightful even to think that there are children, victims of abortion, who will never see the light of day,” he said.

In remarks that were less diplomatic and more a reflection of his own priorities, Francis called for the elderly to be treated with respect that their wisdom warrants, and for children to be protected from exploitation, slavery and hunger.
