Despite her abortion advocacy, Emma Bonino was praised by Pope Francis in 2016 as a 'forgotten great' because of her work with refugees.
Between her abortion activism and being an abortionist herself, Bonino is directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of roughly six million Italian babies between 1968 and today.
On Wednesday, she gave a presentation on immigration at the Church of San Defendente in San Rocco di Cossato, part of in the Diocese of Biella in northern Italy.
The parish priest, Father Mario Marchiori, gave the green light on the presentation that was sponsored by the local division of Caritas Italiana, part of the Church’s international aid and humanitarian organization. The diocesan bishop, Gabriele Mana, was silent about the event.
National Catholic Register’s Ed Pentin reports he was unable to get comment from the bishop’s office. Although Catholics had communicated concerns to the bishop, it was said he did not agree with the decision to allow Bonino to speak, but he did not want to take sides. Neither did the bishop act to deter Caritas from putting on the event.
Bonino had an illegal abortion at a young age and reportedly worked with a high-volume abortion organization. She herself took part in performing illegal abortions with a crude homemade device, something documented in photographs.
After evading arrest abroad she was jailed for 10 days before being acquitted. Bonino then entered politics as a leftist activist and would rise to be appointed Italy’s foreign minister in 2013.
Bonino has worked to liberalize Italian divorce laws, legalize recreational drugs, ban a national nuclear energy program, and has promoted nudism, same-sex 'marriage,' transgenderism, the abolition of the armed forces, disbanding of NATO, the liberalization of porn laws, and mandatory sex education."
