It’s bad enough for a non-Catholic to deny the right to life of an unborn baby. But when a boldly self-proclaimed Catholic and elected official—one who never fails to promote her Catholic faith—to deny the right to life to a pre-born infant, well, it’s something that would confound even a child who knows instinctively it’s wrong to kill a living human being.
It gets worse.
To force all of us taxpayers to PAY for that killing of a human life on top of it…
And even worse…
To not even allow anyone in the U.S. House of Representative to vote on whether or not to force us taxpayers to pay for killing a pre-born human life; that is just plain jaw-drooping.
Yet that’s exactly what California’s U.S. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, a loudly self-proclaimed Catholic, has done. And continues to do.
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D, San Francisco)—a repeatedly self-declared Catholic—has blocked the vote on a bill to ban taxpayer-funded abortions 55 times!
Pelosi’s Archbishop lays it out clearly
“Let me repeat: no one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it,” Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone states in his July 22, 2021, Statement.
“The right to life is a fundamental – the most fundamental – human right,” he continues, “and Catholics do not oppose fundamental human rights. To use the smokescreen of abortion as an issue of health and fairness to poor women is the epitome of hypocrisy: what about the health of the baby being killed? What about giving poor women real choice, so they are supported in choosing life?
