Is this the same Pope that ABC reported yesterday that Øbama "quotes and admires"? Surely not, since Øbama is one of those that, if he had his druthers, would let abortions take place up to the child's second birthday.

Sure, the Pope's 'broad focus on poverty'... must be just LIP SERVICE.

Single parenthood is the LARGEST source of poverty. So, if I woman has no means to support a child and wants and abortion, the Pope is against it.

Just a bunch of lip service....

No. I was hoping that the Pope would focus on being the supreme leader of the Catholic church and stay out of American politics.

There is nothing political about killing unborn babies. It is an awful thing to do.

If abortion is not political, then why are these people wasting their time out in the cold, protesting and marching on Capitol Hill?

Seems like the 'political' thing to do, to attempt to change political opinion on the matter.

They are speaking their mind (and likewise so are you here on Topix).

It is an admirable representation of FREE SPEECH.

And yet, the Pope needs to keep to the business of HIS CHURCH and leave political action to the citizens of THIS country.

It's a moral issue and opposition needs to be voiced. As a political topic, it is settled law. You won. Moms can legally kill their unborn children.

The Pope has as much right to his opinion as any other human being. That's it, period.

My unappreciation of the Pope involving himself in our political issues has NOTHING to do with my views of abortion.

The Pope could be putting his nose in our political discussions about pot and I'd still be against his involvement in matters pertaining to the United States.

And, by the way, the abortion issue in this country was resolved by Roe v Wade, but it is no way a 'done deal'. There ARE people who believe that Roe v Wade can be overturned; thus the REASON for their protest.

The laws of this land are very much my business as an American. I vote and I vote for people who have a moral conscience and your option is to vote for those who don't.

Roe v. Wade does need to be revisited by the High Court. Even Justice Ginsberg said it was too sweeping and should have been a narrow decision as to the Texas law in question alone.

The Pope would be against killing unborn babies worldwide, not just the US.
