Pope Francis compared abortion to a Mafia-style killing Wednesday, saying it's the equivalent of hiring a hit man to "take out a human life to solve a problem."
Francis made the comments, among his strongest yet against abortion, during his weekly audience on Wednesday. He dedicated it to the commandment exhorting the faithful not to kill.
