Pope Francis just changed EVERYTHING — well, temporarily, at least.
The leader of the Catholic Church announce that during the "Year Of Mercy," women who have had an abortion will be able to receive forgiveness from any priest.

This is HUGE.
That's because usually having an abortion is grounds for automatic excommunication. AND the only religious official who could reverse it is a bishop.
However, because of what Pope Francis declared on Tuesday, priests will be able to forgive women who have had the procedure — but this is only effective during the upcoming "Year of Mercy," which starts on December 8 and goes until November 20 of next year.
Pope Francis said in a statement:

She's showing us that she's standing by the organization! The soulful singer took to Twitter to share her support for the women's rights organization after Republicans have recently called to cut its funding. She wrote:
An anti-abortion group called Center for Medical Progress claims PP is performing illegal activities with the fetus tissue they recover after abortions.
It alleges to have video evidence of Planned Parenthood employees discussing selling body parts for research and profiting off the sale, which is completely against the law.
However, organization officials say the footage is edited and that the organization isn't doing anything wrong. President Cecile Richards said in a statement:

Maybe she's still a little confused about what actually happened during the Holocaust.
Jessa Duggar, from the show 19 Kids and Counting, visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. and she was very moved by the experience.
She was so moved that she tried to find a way to tie it into our everyday life, and even though there are actual genocides taking place in the world right now, she chose to link it to abortion.
Yup, you read that right.

Toni Braxton only recently opened up about some of her darkest moments.
In her new book Unbreak My Heart: A Memoir, Toni details some of the toughest times in her life.
In it, she opens up about her secret abortion she had ten years ago. She had every reason to terminate the pregnancy (she was on a prescription that could've caused birth defects), and a whole bunch of people would NEVER blame her, but she still feels guilty.

We didn't think it was possible, but Floyd Mayweather Jr. hit an all-time low today when he decided to share the "real" reason he broke up with his ex on Facebook.
Earlier this year, the boxer's fiancée Shantel Christine Jackson decided to break things off after she allegedly caught him cheating on her.
However, in a totally classless move, Floyd decided to go on Facebook and tell his followers HE broke things off with her because she decided to have an abortion! If that wasn't bad enough, he also posted a picture of Shantel's alleged sonogram and wrote:
