While I do agree that women (and men) should think before they act and prevent unwanted pregnancies, in my opinion there are instances such as rape, incest and concerns over the mother’s health when abortions are warranted.
The Pope should be more concerned with cleaning up his gay man’s club, otherwise known as the Roman Catholic Church, than in telling other people how to live their lives. If he were honest he would admit the countless atrocities that members of his clan have carried out on innocent children and focus on ridding the Church of pedophile priests so that these sexual abuses by the clergy never occur again. Instead, he continues to re-direct attention from the Vatican’s shortcomings to those of the common people by repeating the same rhetoric that his Church has been stating for centuries. Such hypocrisy! TGO

Benedict reaffirmed the Catholic Church’s firm opposition to abortion in a speech Saturday to members of the Pontifical Academy for Life, Vatican’s bioethics advisory board.
The pontiff argued that women are often convinced, sometimes by their own doctors, that abortion is a legitimate choice and in some cases even a therapeutic act to prevent their babies from suffering.
Saying “abortion solves nothing,” he called on doctors not to give up their duty to defend the consciences of women from such “deception.”
Church teaching holds that human life begins at conception.
