Pope Francis Condemns Abortion as "Horrific"

One advantage of the Pope's approach is that when he does condemn abortion, it hits home:
‘‘It arouses horror at the thought that there are children who will never see the light – victims of abortion – or those children who are used as soldiers, raped or killed in armed conflicts, objects in that tremendous market in the form of modern slavery that is human trafficking, which is a crime against humanity,’‘ Pope Francis said.

Somebody should do a count of the number of times Pope Francis condemned abortion in the first year of his pontificate compared to Pope Benedict and Pope John Paul II.

I sense he would compare favourably.
