Carlos Latuff is a Brazilian cartoonist.  Cf. Leonardo Boff: “No Brasil a cada dois dias morre uma mulher por abortos mal feitos, como foi publicado recentemente em O Globo na primeira página” (In Brazil a woman dies every other day due to a botched [illegal] abortion, as was recently revealed on the front page of O Globo) (“O Papa e o aborto,” Carta Maior, 29 October 2010); Frei Betto: “Pena que o papa Bento XVI tenha virado cabo eleitoral de forças conservadoras!  Por que não elogia políticas sociais que salvam vidas?” (It’s a shame that Pope Benedict XVI has become a canvasser for conservative forces!  Why doesn’t he praise the social policies that save lives?) (Twitter, 29 October 2010); Frei Betto: “Quando é que o papa condenará as guerras ao Iraque, ao Afeganistão e o bloqueio dos EUA a Cuba?” (When will the Pope condemn the wars on Iraq and Afghanistan or the US blockade against Cuba?” (Twitter, 29 October 2010); Arturo Cano, “Brasil es un país laico, replica Lula a la intromisión del Papa en los comicios” (La Jornada, 30 October 2010).  Translation by Yoshie Furuhashi (@yoshiefuruhashi | yoshie.furuhashi [at] gmail.com).
