In his brief address, Pope Francis quoted the document Gaudium et Spes of the Second Vatican Council, that says, “Life once conceived, must be protected with the utmost care; abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.” He encouraged pro-life workers to fight for life “with a style of closeness” to women so that “every woman feels regarded as a person, heard, accepted, accompanied.”
Why he's just oozing with Spirit of Vatican II, I'm telling ya!
Folks: let's just accept the reality: Pope Francis is totally orthodox. He's not going to change Church doctrine. He's not going to inaugurate wild ideological changes. His difference is one of style, not of substance.
I did a quick scan of the MSM, and I didn't see anyone addressing those remarks.
