"Sadly, in these last years, there has been a change in the common mentality, and today we are more and more led to think that life is a good at our complete disposal ..."

After praying the midday Regina Caeli on May 22, Pope Francis greeted all “who participated in the national Scegliamo la vita [Let’s Choose Life] event.”

He told them:

I thank you for your dedication in promoting life and defending conscientious objection, which there are often attempts to limit. Sadly, in these last years, there has been a change in the common mentality, and today we are more and more led to think that life is a good at our complete disposal, that we can choose to manipulate, to give birth or take life as we please, as if it were the exclusive consequence of individual choice.

Let us remember that life is a gift from God! It is always sacred and inviolable, and we cannot silence the voice of conscience.
