WASHINGTON, D.C (LifeSiteNews) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn the recent string of attacks on churches and crisis pregnancy centers triggered by fear that Roe v. Wade will be overturned, and instead gushed about a woman’s so-called “right” to abortion.

Pelosi’s silence was all the more deafening considering that she was pressed during her Thursday press conference on whether she believes Democrat “rhetoric” is helping to fuel the pro-aborts’ attacks.

“As far as the abortion case is concerned, there have been a number of attacks on churches, on crisis pregnancy centers. Republicans are going after Democrats for not saying anything and they’re saying that your rhetoric is contributing to these attacks —” a journalist pointed out to Pelosi, before Pelosi interrupted her:

“Well, let me say this. A woman has a right to choose, to live up to her responsibility is up to her, her doctor, her husband, her significant other, and her God.”

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has told Nancy Pelosi, a pro-abortion Democrat, not to present herself for Holy Communion. 

The archbishop is doing this to not only protect our Lord from sacrilege, but also to call Nancy Pelosi to repent from the grave sin of promoting abortion and from the sacrilegious communions that follow.

Archbishop Cordileone will now encounter sustained pressure to roll-back his decision, so we must stand with him today.

SIGN and SHARE this petition to stand with Archbishop Corileone as protects our Lord and Nancy Pelosi from further sacrilegious communions. 

The Eucharist is the literal body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ and no Catholic who has committed a mortal sin is to receive Holy Communion until confessing that sin in the Sacrament of Confession.

Nancy Pelosi's soul is in grave danger, not least because of sacrilegious communions as she continues a career-long crusade in support of killing unborn babies, and so the archbishop has done the most charitable thing possible in calling her to repentance and barring her from Holy Communion until she repents.

We must stand with this brave shepherd today, whom the people of San Francisco are lucky to call their archbishop.

SIGN the petition to support Archbishop Cordileone's brave defense of Our Lord in the Eucharist.

Pelosi said in March that that abortion “isn’t about what is your religious belief” and that “this really gets me burned up, in case you didn’t notice, because, again, I’m very Catholic – devout, practicing, all of that. They would like to throw me out, but I’m not going,” she joked, “because I don’t want to make their day."

What she doesn't understand is that her soul is at risk because of her support for spilling the innocent blood of unborn babies. 

In a letter last month to Pelosi, Archbishop Cordileone made clear that “should you [Pelosi] not [publicly] repudiate your advocacy for abortion ‘rights’ or else refrain from referring to your Catholic faith in public and receiving Holy Communion, I would have no choice but to make a declaration, in keeping with canon 915, that you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.” 

In announcing that the Speaker of the House is barred from Holy Communion, Cordileone made clear that he "will continue to offer up prayer and fasting for you [Pelosi].”

This is the heart of a true shepherd - Cordileone is a father willing to undergo all manner of insults and ridicule from the media and lukewarm Catholics in order to call one of his flock back to the fold.

SIGN the petition today to stand with Archbishop Cordileone as he faces into a storm of criticism.

Continuing to completely ignore the issue of persistent criminal attacks on crisis pregnancy centers during recent weeks, which have included repeated firebombings, violent damage to buildings, and vandalism, Pelosi went on to focus instead on what she sees as the offense of criticism of abortion.

“This talk of criticizing all of this is something uniquely American, and not right. Other countries: Ireland, Italy, Mexico, have legislat[ed] initiatives to expand women’s right to choose. Very Catholic countries,” Pelosi said.

She went on to insist, as she has several times, that she herself is truly Catholic, despite her obstinate public support of the legalized killing of innocent babies, which is an offense that carries the penalty of automatic excommunication from the Church, until repentance.

“I’m a very Catholic person. And I believe in every woman’s right to make her own decisions,” Pelosi continued. Her claim to be “very Catholic” is even more brazen considering that just prior, during Thursday’s press conference, she sidestepped the question of whether she agrees with Pope St. John Paul II and Pope Francis that “abortion is murder.”

“What I agree on is that whatever I believe or agree with the popes on is not necessarily what public policy should be in the United States,” Pelosi replied.

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone recently ordered Pelosi not to present herself to receive Holy Communion, due to her public advocacy of abortion.

“[Y]ou are not to present yourself for Holy Communion and, should you do so, you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion, until such time as you [publicly] repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion and confess and receive absolution of this grave sin in the sacrament of Penance,” Cordileone wrote to Pelosi on May 19.

However, Pelosi has defied this order and persisted in the grave sin of sacrilege by continuing to receive Holy Communion, on top of the grave sin of support for abortion.
