Vatican City, August 12 - Pope Francis on Monday
defended the Catholic Church's stance that human life begins at
conception in the wake of Brazil passing measures to open the
door to abortion-causing drugs in its public healthcare system.
In a statement addressing the start of Brazil's National
Family Week, the Latin American pontiff said that life "must
always be defended, starting in the womb, recognizing it as a
gift of God and guaranteeing the future of humanity".
Last month the pope went to Brazil on his first foreign
trip as pontiff, attracting millions in various cities.
Four days after he left, President Dilma Rousseff signed
into law that requires healthcare centers to administer the
"morning-after pill" to rape victims up to three days after the
crime.
