Although abortion is in direct contradiction with the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church, Pres. Joe Biden attempts to straddle the issue by asserting himself as a “pro-choice” Catholic.
The “choice,” is, of course, the taking of an innocent, pre-born human life.
Biden is so committed to abortion, he even selected Ron Klain, an outspoken pro-abortion activist to serve as his White House chief of staff.
The Christian Post reported in June 2018, shortly after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, Klain took to Twitter to ask people to follow “our great leaders.” One of the “great leaders” cited by Klain is Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, a prominent pro-abortion advocacy organization. NARAL prefers the sanitized abbreviated version of its name, which is actually National Abortion Rights Action League. The group would oppose any pro-life Supreme Court replacement
There’s no mystery surrounding Biden’s selection of Klain as chief of staff. Asserting the right to slaughter pre-born babies is a unifying issue for leftists.
The Catholic Church, however, views life as sacred, which presents a conundrum for far-left Biden, while the church remains consistent in its teachings. In a critical rebuke, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights lists 32 distinct departures from Catholic teachings by the policies of President Biden. It’s worth your time to review them.
The faithfully pro-life U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted overwhelmingly to draft a formal document on the meaning of the Eucharist after a serious debate on whether President Biden and other Catholic politicians who support abortion policies are worthy of receiving Communion at Mass.
More than 73% of the U.S. Bishops casting ballots at the recent virtual conference supported tasking the USCCB’s doctrine committee to draft language on maintaining consistency with the Eucharist. A section of the document is expected to include a specific admonition to Catholic politicians and other public figures who defy church teaching on abortion and other core doctrinal issues.
The vote tally announced Friday was 168 bishops in favor, 55 opposed and six bishops abstaining.
This Catholic Vote survey conducted June 1 – 8, 2021, shows that Catholic respondents expect more from Catholic elected officials than they’re getting.
