Pope Francis just compared abortion to hiring a hitman ... because he says both acts are designed to get rid of a problem.
The Pope made his comment to Argentinian women who oppose a new, proposed law that would decriminalize abortion. The Argentinian President vowed to sign a law that would make abortion "legal, safe and free" for all citizens.
The Pontiff said abortion was just like "hiring a killer to solve a problem."
Pope Francis, who is from Argentina, told opponents of the bill, "The country is proud to have women like you."
