‘No one can claim to be devout Catholic and condone killing of innoicent life’
An archbishop has reportedly responded following an apparent observation by US Speaker of the House of representatives Nancy Pelosi that she is a devout Catholic who supports abortion.
Epoch Times quotes San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone as saying: “Let me repeat: no one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it. The right to life is a fundamental—the most fundamental—human right, and Catholics do not oppose fundamental human rights.”
Cordileone, archbishop of Pelosi’s home diocese, is also quoted in other media as saying: “Our land is soaked with the blood of the innocent, and it must stop.”
