Pope Francis defended the right of doctors who refuse to perform abortions in the United States during talks with US President Barack Obama on Thursday, the Vatican said.

"There was a discussion on questions of particular relevance for the Church in that country, such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection," it said in a statement.
