People who prefer the devil's 'This is my body' to Christ's.
Like I said, the Argentinians, who are 76% "Catholic" should be placed under interdict and receive severe canonical penalties of abortion is permitted through fault of their own by inaction or otherwise.
When he was Cardinal Bergoglio he said that any Catholic politician who voted for abortion should consider himself excommunicated.
Poche, what colour is the sun on your planet? Francis is a devious politician. He said what the boss wanted to hear. Now that he's the boss, his true feelings come out, and Ireland and Argentina prove that he doesn't care about the unborn. Hell, Argentina proves he cares more about the World Cup than he does about the abortion question! :@

He was the highest ranking church official in Argentina. His relation with the Peronist government in Buenos Aires was so strained that I thought he might be arrested for the Faith. It was a surprise to everyone who was familiar with the situation to see him embrace Kirchner after his election to the Holy See.
Still he was a lot tougher on the Argentine politicians than our American bishops are with ours. He was out in front and to the point.
Pope Francis denounced abortion on Saturday as the "white glove" equivalent of the Nazi-era eugenics program and urged families to accept the children that God gives them.
Francis spoke off-the-cuff to a meeting of an Italian family association, ditching his prepared remarks to speak from the heart about families and the trials they undergo. He lamented how some couples choose not to have any children, while others resort to pre-natal testing to see if their baby has any malformations or genetic problems.
"The first proposal in such a case is, 'Do we get rid of it?'" Francis said. "The murder of children. To have an easy life, they get rid of an innocent."
Francis recalled that as a child he was horrified to hear stories from his teacher about children "thrown from the mountain" if they were born with malformations.
"Today we do the same thing," he said.
"Last century, the whole world was scandalized by what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today, we do the same thing but with white gloves," Francis said.
The pope urged families to accept children "as God gives them to us."
Francis has repeated the strict anti-abortion stance of his predecessors and integrated it into his broader condemnation of what he calls today's "throw-away culture." He has frequently lamented 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.
He has also decried how women are often considered part of this "throw-away culture," sometimes forced to prostitute themselves.
"How many of you pray for these women who are thrown away, for these women who are used, for these girls who have to sell their own dignity to have a job?" Francis asked during his morning homily Friday.
Francis has dedicated much of his pontificate to preaching about families, marriage and the problems that families today encounter. He is expected to highlight these issues during his August trip to Ireland where he'll close out the Catholic Church's big family rally.
