United States. Because she defends abortion, an archbishop wants to snuff Nancy Pelosi for communion

The leader of the Democrats in the American House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, must be refused Eucharistic Communion at Mass because of her defense of the right to abortion, the Archbishop of San Francisco ruled on Friday May 20, 2022 in a letter made public.

“You must not present yourself for (receive) Holy Communion and, if that should happen, you must not be admitted for Holy Communion, until you publicly repudiate your defense of the legitimacy of the abortion, and that you confess and receive absolution for this grave sin”writes the American Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone in his letter dated Thursday, May 19, 2022 intended for the senior Democratic official.

Invoking the position of the Church on the issue of abortion, Bishop Cordileone indicates in his letter that he had already threatened Nancy Pelosi, elected representative of California for decades, with this measure in April 2022 if she did not publicly disavow the “abortion rights”.

The Archbishop’s announcement comes as the right to abortion in the United States is threatened by the Supreme Court which, according to a document revealed by Politicoseems ready to go back, 50 years after its historic decision to protect abortion.

“An Abomination”

Shortly after the document was leaked in early May, Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Senator Leader Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement that the Supreme Court’s eventual decision would constitute “an abomination”.

They had both warned: “If this information is correct, the Supreme Court is poised to impose the strongest restriction of rights in fifty years — not just to women, but to all Americans.”.

Requested by AFP, the services of Nancy Pelosi were not able to respond immediately.

Even if it is supported by a majority of the population, according to recent polls, the right to abortion has been a very divisive social issue in the United States since the historic “Roe v. Wade” of January 1973, which protects the right of American women to terminate their pregnancies.

The Archbishop also asks “To all the faithful of the Archdiocese of San Francisco to pray for all our elected officials, especially the elected Catholics” who promote abortion rights, to change their minds “on this matter of the utmost gravity”.
