On his flight back to the Vatican from Colombia, Pope Francis said Monday that people who deny climate change are ignoring reality and that if President Trump is truly pro-life, he should allow Dreamers - undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children - to remain in the U.S. But after meeting Pope Francis on September 9 during his trip to the Colombia, she gave up her intention to end her life.

NPR reported that Consuelo Cordoba was injured in 2000 when her former partner threw acid on her face.

"I had flawless teeth, I was very pretty", Cordoba told NPR in a 2012 interview. But now, I'm destroyed. "If that is so, I am hopeful that it will be re-thought". "I was the first in line and the first one he greeted was me".

Consuela has undergone 87 operations and needs tubes in her nostrils to breathe, can only eat liquid food and needs to wear a mesh body suit at all times.

However, she made a decision to ask Pope Francis for permission when he visited Colombia last week, and was selected to talk to him. "I'm happy, I told him I was going to get euthanized, to help me, and he told me no, that I was not going to do that".

The pontiff, who was a scientist in his younger years, also said science is speaking "very clearly" about the fact of climate change and that people need to listen. "Here in Teusaquillo, Dr. Gustavo Quiñones was going to give me the injection, but I'm not going to get it anymore", she said. Now I want to live.

She added: 'I am going to tell Dr Gustavo thank you very much for your injection, but it is for another'.
