Pope compares abortion to Nazi crimes

Pope Francis

Francis spoke off-the-cuff to a meeting of an Italian family association.

Pope Francis said parents who choose to terminate their pregnancies after pre-natal tests reveal a fetus is facing health problems are essentially following Nazi-era eugenics policies by deciding which children get to live. In the last century the whole world was scandalized about what the Nazis did to purify the race.

Families should accept children "as God gives them to us", the Pope said. Pope Francis said he hoped that an accord will be adopted which will promote a migration that is safe, ordered and legal.

The achievement would a huge relief for both players and Russians who anxious about being humiliated on the world's biggest sporting stage.

"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", Pope Francis was reported as saying.

"It is painful to say this today: People speak of varied families, of various kinds of family", but "the family [as] man and woman in the image of God is the only one", he said, according to ANSA News Agency.

Francis has been criticised by some conservatives following his silence on Ireland's referendum result last month where over two thirds of voters voted to remove the Eighth Amendment from the Irish constitution. "And to have an easy life, one does away with an innocent".

Meghan Markle has an unusual nickname from Prince Charles
Markle also shared that he talked politics with Prince Harry over the phone - and Harry argued that he should give U.S. I regretted it because I really wanted to walk her down the aisle. "That upsets me somewhat", Markle said.

While Francis has been more open-minded on some social issues - reportedly telling a gay man that God made him that way - he has maintained the strict anti-abortion stance of his predecessors.

He has frequently criticised how the sick, the poor, the elderly and the unborn are considered unworthy of protection and dignity by a society that prizes instead individual prowess. The comments also come just over a month ahead of his August 25-26 trip to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families, which will feature Jesuit Fr. James Martin as a keynote speaker on how to be welcoming to the LGBT community.

Belgium 0-0 Panama
The Manchester United striker made it 3-0 in the 75th, latching on to a through pass from Hazard and chipping over Penedo. That was the case in this match, and for a half their rugged defending was enough to throw Belgium off its stride a bit.
