Pope Francis I has offered to baptize the baby of an Italian woman named Anna Romano who refused to abort her baby.
Pope Francis has telephoned a woman who wrote to him to tell her he will baptise her unborn after she refused to have an abortion.
The call was the latest in a string of ‘one to ones’ Pope Francis has had with general members of the public and once again underlined his attempts at being a more human and in-touch pontiff after the ‘stuffy’ years of his predecessor Benedict XVI.
Shop worker Anna Romano, 35, was on holiday when she received the call from the Argentinian pope, who was elected in March this year.
Anna, from Arezzo near Florence, central Italy, had written to Pope Francis earlier this summer to describe her turmoil at having discovered she was pregnant by a man, who unknown to her, was already married with a child and who demanded she terminate the pregnancy.
Good going Pope Francis!
