Pope: DACA Repeal Is Not Pro-Life

I have heard the president of the United States speak,” the pope said. “He presents himself as a pro-life man. If he is a good pro-lifer, he should understand that the family is the cradle of life and you must defend its unity.” - Pope Francis

Pope Francis slammed President Donald Trump's repeal of DACA, calling the President's policy position opposite of pro-life.

I have heard the president of the United States speak,” the pope said. “He presents himself as a pro-life man. If he is a good pro-lifer, he should understand that the family is the cradle of life and you must defend its unity.”

The Pope continued:

“Removing young people from their family is not a thing that bears good fruit, neither for the young person nor the family.”

Pope Francis also told reporters that the science is clear on climate change and that politicians must speak loudly in favor of policies to address it.
