Pope Francis Sends Prayers to March for Life

It’s been almost a year since Pope Francis began his pontificate, and the liberal media has hung on his every word, searching for evidence the head of the Church is an ideological, if not theological ally.

The results have sometimes been ridiculous, as when Reuters called the Pope’s recent strong condemnation of abortion “a nod to conservatives” to placate their “criticism.”

Today, the Pope made another strong statement about abortion, and we’ll see how the media react to this one, given that its lending support to en event they’ve tried to blackout for years.

This morning, Francis tweeted, “I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers. May God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable.”

The March for Life, commemorating the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision and the 55 million innocents legally killed since 1973, is the largest annual gathering in Washington, D.C., and an annual embarraament to the pro-abortion legacy media.

Perhaps Francis’ tweet will be the impetus for more extensive and fair coverage. On the other hand, the Pope might just sound too Catholic.
