(LifeSiteNews) — Political advocacy group Catholic Vote has launched a project to keep track of which self-described Catholic members of Congress in the U.S. maintain a pro-life voting record.
According to the Catholic Accountability Project, 25 members of the Senate and 131 members of the House of Representatives are “self-professed Catholics,” yet a whopping 57 percent of them are pro-abortion despite the unequivocal condemnation of the practice by the Catholic Church.
Looking at the partisan breakdown in the Senate, only one of the 15 Democratic senators, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, is pro-life. For the Republican senators, 80 percent are pro-life, with Lisa Murkowski from Arkansas and Susan Collins from Maine being pro-abortion.
For the House, the numbers are much better for the Republicans, with 100 percent of the representatives maintaining a pro-life voting record, as required by their faith. However, for the Democrat representatives, a dismal 1.3 percent are pro-life. Henry Cuellar from Texas is the only Catholic Democrat to oppose abortion out of 75 self-described Catholic Democrat representatives overall.
Despite many “Catholic” politicians claiming that one can remain a faithful Catholic while advocating for the murder of the unborn, the authentic teaching of the Catholic Church, as affirmed by the Catechism of the Catholic Church, plainly states, “Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.”
The Church also states that the penalty incurred from both procuring abortion and supporting abortion politically, is an automatic excommunication, which leaves the offender outside of communion with the Church until he or she repents.
While many bishops and clergy have stayed silent on the scandal caused by “Catholic” politicians advocating for a woman’s “right” to kill her child, there are some who have defended the Church.
Last year, Bishop Donald Hying of Madison, Wisconsin, slammed pro-abortion “Catholic” Democrats for their role in passing the “Women’s Health Protection Act,” which “forbids states from subjecting abortion to ultrasound requirements, mandatory waiting periods, informed-consent requirements, and other health and safety rules.”
Tell the Ronald McDonald House in British Columbia (BC) and Yukon to stop discriminating against families who do not wish to get the experimental COVID-19 vaccine!
It seems incredible -- like one of those click-bait headlines you see every day on shady websites.
But this is 100% real, and represents a terrifying new reality that families with sick children are facing without any rational or logical justification.
That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this crucial petition asking the Ronald McDonald House Charities leadership to STOP discriminating against the unvaccinated family members of sick children who need their support.
The Canadian Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon, which provides housing for the families of sick children who are being treated in nearby hospitals, has sent letters to families ordering them to submit to the experimental COVID shots or to vacate the premises -- regardless of their children's needs.
On the organization's website, the Ronald McDonald House plainly states the following: "All guests and visitors to the House must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. These measures in addition to an abundance of sanitizer and kindness will help us ensure the safety of everyone at the House."
But, of course, none of the measures suggested by the Ronald McDonald House, much less the COVID-19 vaccine, have been successful in stopping or even slowing the virus' transmission or reducing infection rates.
And with Pfizer's own CEO admitting just this week that the two COVID shots are not effective at preventing infection, it remains unclear what, exactly, the Ronald McDonald House means by "full vaccination."
Regardless, denying families housing during their child's hospital stay -- which is the primary mission of the Ronald McDonald House -- is not only a misguided discriminatory practice, it's stunningly cruel, and it must not continue going forward.
So please take a minute to SIGN and SHARE this important petition calling on Ronald McDonald House British Columbia and Yukon to stop discriminating against families based on their vaccination status.
These families need to focus on supporting their loved ones through very difficult medical situations and procedures, not get caught up the maddening politics of the COVID vaccine.
Whereas the Ronald McDonald Houses have historically been a refuge for needy families, they have now tragically succumbed to the mass formation psychosis over COVID taking Canada and the world by storm, and have decided to join in the unconscionable mass targeting of the unvaccinated to virtue-signal their way through these unprecedented times.
This is unacceptable -- particularly from an organization like the Ronald McDonald House -- and it must stop.

“With the full support of our Catholic president, our Catholic speaker of the house, and scores of Catholic representatives, the most radical pro-abortion bill was passed by the House of Representatives, claiming that any restrictions on abortion are misogyny,” posted the bishop on social media.
Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, also rebuked the idea that a politician can be both pro-abortion and Catholic. He told Catholics that they need to “repent” of their pro-abortion stance before they can receive the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.
“You need to repent, but people that are ignoring that obviously don’t think they’re sinning. So they need to think about [abortion] and recognize that it’s sinful. I mean, it’s called the commandment ‘Thou shalt not kill.’ That’s what it comes down to,” said Strickland. “Real love is to call people to the Truth. The truth is abortion is murder. And to condone murder is evil and sinful, and it’s certainly not an appropriate stance to take and then to be coming up to receive the body and blood of Christ.”
