Pope Benedict XVI’s New Encyclical: Social Political Issues Tied to Pro-Life Ethic

Life News:

The Vatican (LifeNews.com) – Pope Benedict XVI has released a new encyclical Caritas in veritate (Love in Truth), that says the numerous social political issues are all tied to the pro-life ethic.

The leader of the Catholic Church made it clear that human life must be protected from conception on and that the pro-life perspective can’t be compromised in pursuit of common ground on other political issues.

Although the new paper doesn’t mention pro-abortion President Barack Obama, some observers are seeing it as an indirect statement in response to his disingenuous pursuit of common ground on the abortion issue.

Pope Benedict says “one of the most striking aspects of development in the present day is the important question of respect for life, which cannot in any way be detached from questions concerning the development of peoples.”
