TYLER, Texas (LifeSiteNews) – In the wake of the recent leaked draft opinion which could overturn Roe v. Wade, Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, has condemned “so-called Catholic politicians” who support abortion.
Since the recent U.S. Supreme Court leaked draft opinion, alleged “Catholic” politicians, including U.S. President Joe Biden, have voiced their continued support for the murder of unborn babies in the womb, pledging to preserve this supposed “right.”
The evil rhetoric by so-called Catholic politicians should be denounced by every bishop, priest, deacon & every faithful Catholic. Their disregard for the rights of unborn children & their support for abortion at any stage of pregnancy is a blight on our nation & a travesty.

In response, Bishop Joseph Strickland openly condemned their position, tweeting, “The evil rhetoric by so-called Catholic politicians should be denounced by every bishop, priest, deacon & every faithful Catholic.”
“Their disregard for the rights of unborn children & their support for abortion at any stage of pregnancy is a blight on our nation & a travesty,” he continued.
Bishop Strickland has frequently condemned “Catholic” politicians who support abortion. He has clearly explained how their position contradicts Catholic teaching, which necessarily must lead to them being denied Holy Communion.
Self-proclaimed Catholic President Joe Biden is openly pro-abortion, despite being in direct contradiction to Catholic Church teaching.
Biden recently endorsed a move by Democrat U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York to force a vote on altering the U.S. Senate’s long-standing filibuster rule to bring about a change, which, if implemented, would provide cover for the Democrats’ 2020 election fraud and potentially help to abolish all constraints on abortion.
Additionally, after the Supreme Court leak, Biden urged lawmakers to take over the preservation of abortion-on-demand.
In Evangelium Vitae, Pope St. John Paul II employed his full papal authority to publicly condemn abortion as a grave sin “since it is the deliberate killing of an innocent human being.”
