Archbishop BANS Nancy Pelosi from Communion over Her Pro-Abortion Stance

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she will not be allowed to receive communion due to her pro-abortion stance.In a letter to Pelosi, Cordileone told the speaker that she should not approach the alter: “A Catholic legislator who supports procured abortion, after knowing the teaching of the Church, commits a manifestly grave sin which is a cause of most serious scandal to others. Therefore, universal Church law provides that such persons ‘are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.'”

Pelosi is an avid abortion advocate who also claims to be a “devout” Catholic.
“This [topic] really gets me burned up in case you didn’t notice, because again I’m very Catholic, devout, practicing, all of that. They would like to throw me out. But I’m not going because I don’t want to make their day,” Pelosi said in March.The Post Millennial reports:

After the Supreme Court’s draft opinion leak, Pelosi stood with her Democrat colleagues and backed the Women’s Health Protection Act, which legalizes abortion without limitation for the entirety of a woman’s pregnancy. This bill, said Pelosi, would be a “codification” of the Roe v Wade decision into national law.
“Of course, we haven’t passed it in the Senate. But we never, as I say, we never give up in that regard because we do think that the codification of Roe v. Wade would be a really important protection against the court,” she said.
As to her view on abortion from a moral perspective, she said “it’s not up to me to say what’s right for somebody else. Nor is it right for you, nor is it right for the Supreme Court. This has been a precedent of the court. It should be upheld by the court.”
She spoke as well about her opponents on the issue, saying “these are people who don’t believe in governance.”
“They don’t believe in government protecting the environment, they don’t believe in government protecting people’s rights or voting rights or anything like that. But they really are big-time government in your bedroom. Whether it’s a woman’s right to choose, LGBTQ, whatever it is, all of a sudden, there they are,” she said.
In Pelosi’s view, abortion should be a key factor for voters when they go to the polls for the midterm elections this November, saying “you probably want to make decisions about who you vote for in the elections when it comes to this very sad situation.”
It was nearly a year ago when Catholic Bishops spoke about perhaps denying communion to President Biden due to his public, pro-abortion view. In June, American Roman Catholic bishops announce the creation of a “teaching document” that would instruct priests not to allow pro-abortion politicians to take the sacrament.
