To Nancy Pelosi, Abortion “Sacred Ground”; To Pope Francis, “Abominable Crime”
By John W. Lillpop
When it comes to the subject of abortion, the Catholic Church seems to be a huge “big ten,” with divergent views at both ends of the debate.
For example, Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Representative in the US House, said the following about abortion:
“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this,” Pelosi said. “I don’t think it should have anything to do with politics.”
Not all Catholics would agree.
Most notably, Pope Francis issued a strong condemnation of abortion recently, calling it an “abominable crime” and saying the right to life is the central human right.
“We know human life is sacred and inviolable,” the Pope said. “Every civil law is based on the recognition of the first and fundamental right, that to life, which is not subject to any conditions, neither economic nor qualitative nor ideological.”
The big question: Given the strong condemnation voiced by the Pope, why is Nancy Pelosi not forbidden from taking communion?
By not forcing Pelosi to do the right thing, is the Catholic Church guilty of complicity in the deaths of tens of millions of unborn?
