Pope: "Promoting abortion as a form of 'maternal health care' = ironic"

Pope Sidious – er, Lord Benedict – DAMMIT, Pope Sinedict (okay, I give up) is in Africa, discoursing for the first time to the worryingly ever-growing numbers of Catholics in the continent. Already he's attracted much ire and reprehension for his comments on condoms aggravating AIDS rather than reducing the risk, a contemptible thing to say as it will only end in many more gullible fools dying from the goddamned virus. What a horrible old quack the Pope is. I don't remember the late John Paul II being so outright insane and dangerous.

Anyway, he recently allured to an African Union agreement signed in Angola and 44 other countries that stipulated that abortion should be legalized in certain extreme cases, such as rape, incest or when the mother's life is in imminent danger. His comments were about the 'irony of those who promote abortion as a form of 'maternal' health care'.

Yep, that's Benedict for you – allowing a woman to end a pregnancy, even when it's the result of a traumatic rape or incest sequence, or even if it poses a critical threat to the mother's own life, is bad. And this is the guy strutting around as the 'moral conscience' of the world. Disgusting.

"How disconcerting the claim that the termination of life is a matter of reproductive health," Benedict said.

Unfortunately, he's already amassed many blind followers in the area.

Igor Rivas, a 25-year-old student studying economics, was in the crowd of thousands out to welcome the Catholic leader.

"I want the benediction of the pope. I know I am a sinner. I fight to abstain from sex," Rivas said. "I think condoms are not the good way for us. Though they may be useful, they are not the right choice for Catholics, so I need his blessing."

Hearing this sort of stuff from young people like this Mr. Rivas doesn't make me angry. It saddens me horribly. So young, and already atrociously corrupted into not using a readily-available and extremely effective and reliable (not to mention simple) contraceptive method such as condoms, which both virtually assures the prevention of both AIDS and unwanted pregnancies. He and other blind sheep only parrot the Pope's horrid views without an ounce of personal or critical thought in their miserably twisted minds. It's heartbreaking, really.
