Pope Francis on the Sacredness of All Life
September 20, 2013
In all its phases and at every age, human life is always sacred and always of quality. And not as a matter of faith, but of reason and science! [...] Every unborn child, though unjustly condemned to be aborted, has the face of the Lord, who even before his birth, and then as soon as he was born, experienced the rejection of the world. And every old person, even if infirm and at the end of his days, carries with him the face of Christ. They must not be thrown away!
