    I suspect if you tried to pin Francis down, his point would be not that prior to the consumer culture there was no abortion, but that there was not a large, overt population for which it was free of stigma.
    In a culture in which abortion is punishable by death and often results in death anyway due to unsafe procedures, there probably were -- surprise! -- fewer abortions.  Oh that Catholic respect for life in all its forms!

    And Bergoglio is guilty of much worse than post hoc ergo propter hoc.

    Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej
