Pope vs. President
Pope Francis and President Joe Biden have demonstrated that they share similar positions on many critical issues today, but there is one issue about which they have strongly disagreed.
Their views on abortion are poles apart.
Currently, abortion access is before the Supreme Court in the U.S., as certain states fight to secure the freedom to limit abortion access according to their collective consciences.
President Biden and Nancy Pelosi, both self-professed Roman Catholics, wish to see the Roe v. Wade decision of the Supreme Court upheld and abortion access protected according to their pro-choice views.
Pope Francis and the Catholic Church are pro-life. Having always understood abortion as a violation of the human right to life, the Vatican wishes to see Roe v. Wade overturned.

Pope Francis on Abortion:
“Is it fair to eliminate a human life in order to solve a problem? The answer to which is: no. Second question: Is it fair to pay a sniper to solve a problem? No. Abortion is not a religious problem in the sense that just because I am Catholic I must not seek an abortion. It is a human problem. It is a problem of eliminating a human life. Period.”
President Biden on Abortion:
“Roe v. Wade must remain the law of the land.”
How long has the Church been pro-life?
Since the first century, the Church has affirmed the moral evil of abortion.
How long has pro-choice been mainstream in the U.S.?
Arguably since the late 1960s, with the Roe v. Wade decision.

Quotes from celebrities who were almost aborted:
I wanted to meet my biological mother mostly to see if she was okay and to thank her, because I'm glad I didn't end up as an abortion. She was twenty-three and she went through a lot to have me.- Steve Jobs
I’m pro-choice but against abortion because I’m an illegitimate child myself and it would be hypocritical to take any other position. I’d be dead. I wouldn’t exist.- Jack Nicholson
The doctors ... suggested that she abort the child ... because the baby would be born with some disability. But the young brave wife decided not to abort, and the child was born. That woman was my mother, and I was the child. Maybe I'm partisan, but I can say that it was the right choice.- Andrea Bocelli
