Archbishop: Pelosi's Hypocritical; NOT 'Devout'

July 22, 2021: Statement of San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defending efforts to permit federal funding of elective abortions.

    • July 22, 2021

      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.  

      To use the smokescreen of abortion as an issue of health and fairness to poor 

      women is the epitome of hypocrisy: what about the health of the baby being killed?  

      What about giving poor women real choice, so they are supported in choosing life?  

      This would give them fairness and equality to women of means, who can afford 

      to bring a child into the world. It is people of faith who run pro-life crisis 

      pregnancy clinics; they are the only ones who provide poor women 

      life-giving alternatives to having their babies killed in their wombs.  I cannot be 

      prouder of my fellow Catholics who are so prominent in providing this vital service.  

      To them I say: you are the ones worthy to call yourselves “devout Catholics”!
