The Vatican Invested in Abortion Pill Company

The Vatican invested 20 million euros in Novartis, whose subsidiary Sandoz is responsible for the production and sale of the "morning-after" pill.

The Vatican invested for 20 years in a pharmaceutical company that makes abortifacients, according to the Italian publication "churchmilitant".

The report states that the Vatican invested 20 million euros in the Swiss company Novartis, whose subsidiary Sandoz is responsible for the production and sale of the so-called "morning-after" pill.

Church Militant correspondent in Rome Jules Gomez believes that the investment was not a deliberate violation of Church teaching: "We are talking about a very high degree of incompetence, and this incompetence can be seen at all levels of the Vatican bureaucracy."

"The Vatican really needs to open its eyes to the extreme corruption found in big pharma," Gomez noted.

The Novartis stock was sold in 2016, but the Vatican continues to support controversial companies, including investments in Pfizer and Moderna.
