Saturday, 21 May 2022 10:55 AM MYT NEW YORK, May 21 — US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can no longer take communion because she supports abortion rights and also publicly invokes her Catholic faith, the archbishop of San Francisco said in a letter released on Friday. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said in an open letter addressed to Pelosi and in another directed toward the faithful that “Pelosi’s position on abortion has become only more extreme over the years, especially in the last few months. With unusually bipartisan support, the Senate voted 86-11 to pass the package — the equivalent of the 2020 GDP of Cameroon — after one senator briefly held up the vote, voicing alarm on the costs.” Pelosi’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. “I wouldn't be surprised if, in the coming weeks, President Biden and President Xi speak again," he said. The archbishop’s decision comes after the leak earlier this month of a draft Supreme Court opinion indicating the top court would strike down the 1973 Roe v. “The future of American security and core strategic interests will be shaped by the outcome of this fight,” he said ahead of the vote. Wade decision that legalised abortion nationwide.

Cordileone said Pelosi had not responded to his requests to meet in the months since she pledged to codify abortion protections in federal law after lawmakers in conservative states passed near total-bans on abortions at the state level. Nearly US$9 billion is set aside to help Ukraine ensure “continuity of government” as well as humanitarian aid.. The archbishop said he sent Pelosi a private letter in April, warning that he would bar her from communion unless she publicly repudiated her support for abortion rights or stopped referring to her Catholic faith in public. Cordileone highlighted comments Pelosi made to the Seattle Times editorial board this month, citing her Catholic faith and support for abortion rights, then said: “They say to me, ‘Nancy Pelosi thinks she knows more about having babies than the Pope. As Russian forces have given up on seizing Kyiv but have stepped up fighting in eastern and southern Ukraine, Biden has been calling for another round of financial support.’ Yes I do. Biden lands in South Korea on Friday evening, where he meets new President Yoon Suk-yeol with North Korea at the top of the agenda. Are you stupid?” In his letter to the faithful, Cordileone wrote that “my action here is purely pastoral, not political. Paul, who opposes US interventionism, voiced concern about the cost and said that lawmakers should have been clearer on how to pay for the package and on monitoring where the money goes.

” “Speaker Pelosi remains our sister in Christ,” the archbishop wrote. “Her advocacy for the care of the poor and vulnerable elicits my admiration.” Shortly after the vote, Secretary of State Antony Blinken released another US$100 million in previously approved funding for Ukraine.” — Reuters Advertisement .
