If the Catholic Church didn’t have a policy against the use of birth control, a wall wouldn’t be needed at the Mexican border. Now the pope is hinting that birth control might be considered to protect unborn children from a damaging virus. The Catholic Church should have had the same concern for children to protect them from overpopulation and extreme poverty. Overpopulation and extreme poverty are the root of the United States immigration problem. That situation has made the lower Americans a difficult place for the common people there so they try to escape it by illegal immigration to the U.S.
Why hasn’t any government spoken out about the destructive policy that is causing so much misery for so many in the Americas?
