(CNSNews.com) – While answering questions after speaking to Italy’s Family Association on June 16, Pope Francis said that abortion today is no different morally than what the Nazis did with eugenics to try build a superior race, and he also explained that homosexual couples cannot create real families, that a real family is defined by one man married to one woman, with the marriage open to creating new life.
"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 [wrong], the first offer is let's send it away" by abortion, said Pope Francis, as reported by CNN.
“I say this with pain,” he said. “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."
During the Third Reich, the Nazi’s used various tactics to eliminate people they considered racially inferior and to attempt to create a pure Aryan race. The Nazis sterilized people, conducted experiments on twins, murdered children with physical and mental handicaps, experimented on pregnant women, and applied abortion as a policy to “scientifically” weed out so-called undesirables.
Globally today, an estimated 90% of Down syndrome children are killed by abortion. This is true in the United States and Europe. Abortion is used to weed them out.
As for the family, Pope Francis said, "Today, it is hard to say this, we speak of 'diversified' families: different types of families. It is true that the word 'family' is an analogical word, because we speak of the 'family' of stars, 'family' of trees, 'family' of animals ... it is an analogical word.”
“But the human family in the image of God, man and woman, is the only one,” said the Pope. “It is the only one.”
“A man and woman can be non-believers, but if they love each other and unite in marriage, they are in the image of God, even if they don't believe,” he said.
