Today we look at a section titled Rights without borders. We seem to be discussing not only political borders, but ones of culture, sex, race, and any other fence of human creation that divides one group from another. No footnotes or citations, just pure Pope Francis:
121. No one, then, can remain excluded because of his or her place of birth, much less because of privileges enjoyed by others who were born in lands of greater opportunity. The limits and borders of individual states cannot stand in the way of this. As it is unacceptable that some have fewer rights by virtue of being women, it is likewise unacceptable that the mere place of one’s birth or residence should result in his or her possessing fewer opportunities for a developed and dignified life.
