Pelosi’s Archbishop: Biden CANNOT Support Abortion AND Be a True Catholic
Pelosi and Biden both promote abortion despite being Catholic
The archbishop of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s diocese slammed those who support abortion while claiming to be Catholic at the same time.
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco wrote in a letter on Saturday:
“Our responsibility to the rest of the Catholic community is to assure them that the Church of Jesus Christ does take most seriously her mission to care for ‘the least of these,’ as Our Lord has commanded us, and to correct Catholics who erroneously, and sometimes stubbornly, promote abortion."
“This correction takes several forms and rightly begins with private conversations between the erring Catholic and his or her parish priest or bishop,” he continued.
“Because we are dealing with public figures and public examples of cooperation in moral evil, this correction can also take the public form of exclusion from the reception of Holy Communion.”

But the church opposes abortion, viewing it as murder.
Pelosi argued her Catholic faith “shouldn’t have an impact on a woman’s right to choose.”
Mary Hasson, a fellow at the conservative-leaning Ethics and Public Policy Center, said:
"But I will say, it is really problematic when you have a Catholic — the most prominent Catholic in the country, which is what President Biden is — taking this stand that he is in favor of abortion — which the church says is a grave moral evil; it's the killing of defenseless, unborn, vulnerable human life — and then presenting himself for Communion."
The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway tweeted in response to the Washington Post story:
“Supporting the killing of unborn children makes you ‘very Catholic’ to the Jeff Bezos propaganda outlet while supporting the consistent Catholic teaching on it makes you a ‘right-wing’ Catholic. Clown clown clown show over there."

Biden faced fire from the U.S. Bishops’ Conference (USCCB) earlier over his reinstatement of taxpayer-funded abortions around the world.
Chairman of the Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, and Bishop David Malloy said in a statement:
“It is grievous that one of President Biden’s first official acts actively promotes the destruction of human lives in developing nations."
“This Executive Order is antithetical to reason, violates human dignity, and is incompatible with Catholic teaching."
"We and our brother bishops strongly oppose this action."
Biden signed an executive order earlier this year allowing taxpayer funds to be sent to organizations that both “promote and provide abortions in developing countries."
