The archbishop of San Francisco condemned “self-proclaimed Catholics” Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for their hypocritical support of abortion. In a recent op-ed, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone defended Texas’s ban on abortions after six weeks.
Cordileone characterized abortion as the “preeminent human rights issues of our time” and said more than 60 million lives have been lost to abortion since the Roe vs. Wade decision. He added pro-abortion politicians should be denied Holy Communion.
“You cannot be a good Catholic and support expanding a government-approved right to kill innocent human beings,” he stated. “The answer to crisis pregnancies is not violence but love, for both mother and child.”

Last week, Biden called Texas’s law an “unprecedented assault” and directed his administration to look for ways to protect abortion access after the Supreme Court refused to block the law.
