Pope Benedict on pro-abortion politicians

The Holy Father seems to have got off to a flying start on the trip to Brazil. Reuters reports an interview on the plane: Pope warns Catholic politicians who back abortion. The article gives selected quotations in which Pope Benedict supports the Mexican Bishops who have threatened to excommunicate politicians who have voted to legalise abortion.

Ed Peters has a good post (Legislating in mid-air? First thoughts: possible, but not likely) including news of clarifications by Fr Lombardi with the Holy Father's approval.

Fr Z also has some helpful analysis.
