Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone called out Catholic politicians who praised the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act, saying it’s about people’s medical choices. Cordileone directed those supporting HR 3755 to consider recent comments made by Pope Francis. who compared abortion to murder.
“It is especially shameful that any self-professed Catholic would be implicated in such an evil, let alone advocate for it,” he wrote. “To Catholic politicians in particular, I implore you to listen to the words of Pope Francis who just last weekend, during his flight back to Rome from Slovakia, said, ‘Abortion is more than a problem. Abortion is homicide. It is a human life, period. And this human life must be respected.”

Democrats in the House of Representatives passed the measure on Sept. 24 with a vote of 218 to 211, so now it’s up to the Senate. The bill would allow abortion of viable preborn babies and nullify a women’s “right-to-know” laws and parental involvement statutes for minors. It also would overturn state laws that protect unborn children with Down Syndrome, among other things.
“This proposed legislation is nothing short of child sacrifice, and clearly in reaction, among other things, to the recently passed Texas heartbeat bill,” the archbishop added. “It should come as no surprise, then, that that (Texas) bill is being challenged by none other than The Satanic Temple and precisely on the grounds of religious freedom.”
He then asked Catholics to pray and fast for lawmakers of Congress, including Pelosi, that there would be a conversion of their hearts.
When asked about the archbishop’s remarks, Pelosi responded, “It’s not our business how other people choose the size and timing of their families. What business is it of any of us to tell anyone else what to do?”
Pelosi supports abortion until birth, something opposed by the vast majority of Americans.
