Red Francis Honors Dutch Abortion Activist with Pontifical Medal of Knighthood

Pope Francis honored Dutch politician and abortion activist Lilianne Ploumen with the pontifical medal of knighthood.

Ploumen is a longtime abortion activist.

Breitbart.com reported:

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights.

Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion.

In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month.

In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a sign of the pope’s progressivism, as well as acknowledgement for her work in supporting abortion rights.

Ms. Ploumen said that the award came after much personal investment in contacts with the Vatican, which she defined as “lobbying.”

Last July Pope Francis, who supports socialism, said America has a distorted view of the world.
