‘Danger to Her Own Soul She is Risking’ – San Francisco Archbishop Bars Pelosi From Holy Communion Due to Her Support of Abortion

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone on Friday announced House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will no longer be admitted to Holy Communion due to her support of abortion.

“Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion,” the Catechism of the Catholic Church says. “This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable.”

“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,'” Cordileone wrote in the letter to Pelosi.

“After numerous attempts to speak with Speaker Pelosi to help her understand the grave evil she is perpetrating, the scandal she is causing, an the danger to her own soul she is risking, I have determined that she is not to be admitted to Holy Communion.” the Archbishop said.

The Archdiocese of San Francisco also made the announcement on Friday.
