NARAL continued their tweetstorm asking what was "pro-life" about "ripping families apart and threatening the safety of 800K young people who call America home" and "refusing refugees and banning Muslim people from entering the country".

Weighing in on two areas of disagreement with a US president with whom he has already clashed, Pope Francis said Monday that climate science is clearly true, and that President Donald Trump should allow young immigrants to stay in the United States if he is truly "pro-life". "If he is a good pro-life believer he must understand that family is the cradle of life and one must defend its unity".

Pope Francis hasn't held back his strong feelings about Trump's views on immigration.

That particular spat led to the awe-inspiring event of Trump telling the pope that he'd better hope ISIS doesn't attack the Vatican. But it doesn't appear as if the president will include protecting undocumented youth from being deported to countries that their advocates say could put them in harm's way in his definition of "pro-life". A POLITICO/ Morning Consult poll published the day of DACA's rescission, which surveyed 1,993 registered voters, found that 58 percent of American voters would like to see a pathway for DACA recipients to stay and become citizens after meeting certain requirements.

The pontiff telling critics, "those who deny this must go to the scientists and ask them. They speak very clearly", he said, referring to experts who blame global warming on man-made activities.

Francis is one of the world's most high-profile campaigners on environmental issues, actively supporting efforts to combat climate change and its consequences.

One of the most memorable scenes in the film comes when Gaga addresses her feud with fellow pop star Madonna . Later on, after their July 2016 split, she breaks down in tears.

Everyone has a moral responsibility to act, he said. "We really do need to take in his message of poverty and inequality. This is what comes to me", Francis said September 10.

The pope - who weighed in on Trump's border wall during the campaign - may have been downplaying his knowledge of the US political scene when he spoke about the process relating to the controversial decision. If someone has doubts about man-made climate change, they must go to the scientists, and then make their decisions: "And history will judge the decisions".

He said he hopes the president's administration will "rethink" its plan. He added that attachment to money "has effects on creation, and also on so many other questions, like that of arms.

They are very clear", Francis told reporters after a trip to Colombia, The Associated Press reports. In the end, they are the ones who will determine whether Colombia truly has peace after 52 years of civil war.

Travelling through crowds (numbering in the thousands, at least) in the Colombian city of Cartagena, Pope Francis stumbled and hit his head on the Popemobile when the vehicle braked, causing blood to flow all over his cassock (look Mum, I remember the terms from Catholic school!). He spoke to me of troubles they are having, Francis said, "because so many of them are coming that there isn't time to settle them, find school, lodging, work, learn the language". This is my future.
