Pope Francis encouraged Catholics in Africa to reject abortion and treat children as a blessing on Thursday in Kenya.

“We are also called to resist practices which foster arrogance in men, hurt or demean women, and threaten the life of the innocent unborn,” the pontiff said during a Mass at the University of Nairobi, Kenya, according to the BBC.

He encouraged young people to stand up for the sanctity of every human life by shaping “a society which is ever more just, inclusive and respectful of human dignity.” He added that they “should reject everything that leads to prejudice and discrimination.”

Pope Francis told the crowd: “Our faith in God’s word calls us to support families in their mission in society, to accept children as a blessing for our world, and to defend the dignity of each man and woman, for all of us are brothers and sisters in the one human family.”

The pope’s words came to a country that has been targeted by abortion advocates in recent years. Though its ambassador to the United Nations strongly denounced abortion earlier this year, Kenya has been pushed to expand abortion by the UN and the Obama Administration.

Pope Francis has been emphasizing the sanctity of human consistently during his visits across the world. When he came to the U.S. in September, the pope admonished members of Congress to “defend life at every stage of development.”

“The Golden Rule also reminds us of our responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its development,” he told U.S. Congress. “I am convinced that this way is the best, since every life is sacred, every human person is endowed with an inalienable dignity.”

Los Angeles (AFP) - A social media campaign launched by three US activists to denounce the stigma surrounding abortion has gone viral as women have shared their experiences, though pro-life campaigners have hit back.

 

The hashtag "#ShoutYourAbortion" was started on Twitter over the weekend after the US House of Representatives voted to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest women's health care ser vices provider, as Republicans pushed for a probe of the organization.

Lindy West, Amelia Bonow and Kimberly Morrison said they began the campaign in a bid to encourage women to reclaim the conversation about abortion.

Bonow shared her own story on Facebook along with the hashtag and since then thousands of women across the globe have detailed their experience.

"I had an abortion at Planned Parenthood last year and it was a great experience," Bonow, who lives in Seattle, told AFP. "Not only am I not ashamed, but I know I'm incredibly lucky to have access to this choice and we need to keep it that way."

West also recounted her abortion experience on Facebook, saying she had no regrets.

"I set up #ShoutYourAbortion because I am not sorry and I will not whisper," she wrote on Twitter.

Tens of thousands of women were thought to have shared similar stories with the hashtag, based on web analytics sites.

But some, who believe abortion is tantamount to murder, have lashed out at the women.

"I'm sure the babies would love to participate in the #ShoutYourAbortion campaign, but they've been murdered and sold for parts," wrote blogger Matt Walsh on Twitter.

Abortion is a hot-button issue in the United States and the latest debate comes as Pope Francis begins a historic visit to the country, during which he will address Congress.

The pontiff tackled the prickly issue ahead of his visit telling priests that they could forgive women the "sin of abortion" if they express remorse.

Just hours before his arrival to Washington, Republican senators tried and failed to break a filibuster on legislation banning late-term abortions.

The controversy over Planned Parenthood erupted after a series of secretly recorded videos were released showing top members of the organization discussing in graphic detail the use of fetal tissue for research.

The House of Representatives stripped the group of federal funding for one year pending a congressional probe.
