Your Progressive Pope

[Content Note: War on agency.]

Naturally, these profoundly anti-choice statements will not get nearly the amount of attention that Pope Francis' allegedly progressive statements have, nor will they dim all the misplaced enthusiasm for the mendacious narrative that he's a progressive pope:
Pope Francis made his toughest remarks to date on abortion when he called the practice "horrific" on Monday.

"It is horrific even to think that there are children, victims of abortion, who will never see the light of day," the pontiff said during his yearly address to diplomats accredited to the Vatican, a speech known as his "State of the World" address.
There's the so-called progressive pope, talking about reproductive choice as "horrific" and demonizing women and other people who get abortions as "victimizers of children."
