The Pope is Against Abortion - Not a Huge Surprise

The Associated Press has a story on Pope Benedict XVI's where he discusses abortion among other things.

On abortion, he asked why societies oppose infanticide "while becoming virtually insensitive to abortion."

"Maybe because in abortion you don't see the face of who will be condemned and never see the light," he wrote.

By allowing parents to exercise their freedoms, he wrote, "you become blind to the right of life of another, the youngest and weakest who doesn't have a voice."

Can you see the reporter's slant on this issue? I wonder what the Pope's wording of the above paragraph before the quoted section was because I doubt he would call legal abortion as "allowing parents to exercise their freedoms."

Exercising their freedoms to what? End the life of their unborn child?
