According to a report submitted to CNN, Pope Francis has landed the Catholic Church in hot water for comments he made during a speech in Rome this afternoon. During a scheduled appearance before delegation of Italy's Family Association, The Pope spoke out against Abortion, comparing it to the Nazi Eugenics of the 1930s & 40s. The Pope also reiterated the church's belief that a "true human family is comprised of a man and woman."

His comments were later confirmed by The Vatican. His words have been translated into the following two passages:

"I have heard that it's fashionable, or at least usual, that when in the first months of pregnancy they do studies to see if the child is healthy or has something, the first offer is: let's send it away."


"I say this with pain. In the last century the whole world was scandalized about what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today we do the same, but now with white gloves."

The Pope seems to be inferring his position on the sterilization of the Human Race, through bioengineering and genetic modification, or just generally through contraception. His comments are in line with his state position that the image of God is created through the union of man and woman, that any other syncretism comes in defiance. His words follow the legislative action of his home nation Argentina, where Abortion has been made legal, as early as 14 weeks of pregnancy.
