Enthusiastic abortion proponent Nancy Pelosi might get kicked out of the Catholic church for her vocal support of slaughtering babies in the womb.
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, the archbishop of Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) home diocese in San Francisco, California, wrote an article for The Washington Post over the weekend stating that excommunication from the Catholic Church is an option for those Catholic politicians who insist on being publicly supportive of abortion in violation of Church teachings.
The archbishop warned in his piece that “[y]ou cannot be a good Catholic and support expanding a government-approved right to kill innocent human beings.”
“This summer, we provoked an uproar by discussing whether public officials who support abortion should receive the sacrament of the Eucharist,” Cordileone wrote. “We were accused of inappropriately injecting religion into politics, of butting in where we didn’t belong.”
“I see matters differently,” he continued. “When considering what duties Catholic bishops have with respect to prominent laymen in public life who openly oppose church teachings on abortion, I look to this country’s last great human rights movement — still within my living memory — for inspiration on how we should respond.”
Abortion, Cordileone noted, is now “the most pressing human rights challenge of our time. Can we pastors speak softly when the blood of 60 million innocent American children cries out for justice?”
Pelosi, meanwhile, promised at an event in Austin Thursday that lawmakers will put forward legislation to permanently codify Roe V. Wade, preserving the right for mothers to abort their babies for generations to come – at least those mothers who aren’t aborted by their own mother first.
