Vatican City (AFP) – Pope Francis on Thursday defended the Catholic Church’s anti-abortion stance and discussed immigration reform at a historic first meeting with President Barack Obama, whose health law has incensed Catholic leaders.

The Vatican said the two sides had discussed “the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection”, foiling White House hopes of public Vatican support for Obama’s agenda.

The Affordable Care Act has raised hackles and accusations of infringing religious freedoms because it requires private employers to provide health insurance including for certain forms of contraception.

Christian American employers have challenged the law in the Supreme Court and a ruling is expected in June, with the nine-member court appearing divided between liberal and conservative judges on the issue.

Controversy over “Obamacare” and the president’s drop in popularity risk causing a Republican victory in this year’s mid-term congressional elections, which would weaken the US leader for his remaining two years in power.

Excerpted from Life News: The details of the private meeting between Pope Francis and pro-abortion President Barack Obama are not yet available, but early indications are that the leader of the Catholic Church brought up pro-life issues with the man considered the “Abortion President” by pro-life advocates.
According to a press statement from the Vatican, the two discussed pro-life issues and religious freedom, a pressing issue given the Supreme Court hearing this week on the Hobby Lobby case to stop the HHS mandate, which forces companies and organizations to pay for abortion-causing drugs for their employees.

“In the context of bilateral relations and cooperation between Church and State, the Parties discussed questions of particular relevance for the Church, such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection, as well as the issue of immigration reform,” the press statement said.

Kathryn Lopez, a pro-life editor at National Review, said the statement shows Obama may have gotten a lecture, or at least encouragement to be open-minded on these key pro-life issues, from the Pope. Via Pat Dollard  Keep reading
