Abortion Divides Mexicans on Papal Visit

The Pope’s visit to Guanajuato this week will be celebrated by many, but definitely not by abortion campaigners. This Mexican state is the one of the strictest, banning abortion except in extreme cases of rape, and the courts donít hesitate to jail women who dare to take matters into their own hands.

In reply...A ten-year study in Spain showed that the abortion rate doubled, not decreased, as 60% more women used contraceptive methods. [ref: study in Jan 2011 Journal Contraception Vol. 83, Issue 1, Pages 82-87]. U.K. and Sweden have found similar results regarding long-term unintended pregnancies. The abortion industry is the one perpetuating abortions, not the Pope.

Well, guess who forbids BIRTH CONTROL, the POPE!!!! He keeps CAUSING more ABORTIONS! Oh, Catholics ADVOCATE helping the poor, TALK A GOOD LINE about helping the poor but what does the CATHOLIC CHURCH ACTUALLY DO WITH ALL THE MONEY THEY SUCK OUT OF THE POOR???? They build PALACE CHURCHES and BUY BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PROPERTY!!! The spend MILLIONS on MAKING THEMSELVES SAINTS!!! And the POPE NEVER, NEVER, NEVER SHOWS UP TO FEED THE STARVING BABIES THAT HE TOLD ALL THE POOR PEOPLE TO POP OUT! The CATHOLIC CHURCH IS THE BIGGEST PONZI SCHEME ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH! THEY NEED TO BE TAXED, RIGHT NOW!

Abortion wouldn't be as much of a problem if Education and Contraception were freely available to ALL people...

In reply: From its earliest days, Christianity advocated concepts of care and compassion for the poor and the defenseless, world peace, civil rights for women and blacks, and much more. This charitable work continues internationally by the Catholic Church through hospitals, AIDS & disaster relief assistance, etc. Admittedly, a few thousand did die through the Inquisition -- if we have to go back several centuries. But in stark contrast, the last century alone has produced deaths in the millions from secular or atheistic forces – Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, not to mention 46 million abortions worldwide every year. It seems the LACK of Judeo-Christian philosophy is the greater threat to human rights and world peace.

Religion has continually been the largest destroyer of life over the centuries. Just another way to control the masses. I just have an across the board problem with these men living in opulence while people are starving and hurting all over the world. Such a shame and why don't they see what an embarrassment.

Wrong, pro-lfer, it's the right of us sane people to do whatever we choose to do with our own bodies. After you stop mastubrating and murdering millions of babies, we'll talk. You filthy penis wackers are gonna burn in your own imaginary hell.

And the Pope is funding his own visit, is he? No? Thought not......these poor benighted people are mostky skint, and yet they will go into vast debt to show that old fool a welcome....why? Since his prime job appears to be to keep all their women popping out one a year like shelling peas, you might imagine that SOMEONE would see what's wrong with that picture........
