The Archbishop of San Francisco issued a scathing statement saying the pro-abortion Women’s Health Protection Act (HR 3755) passed by Congress is something he’d expect from a “devout Satanist” rather than a devoted Catholic.
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone called out Catholic politicians, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who had praised the pro-abortion measure saying it’s about people’s medical choices.
Cordileone directed those supporting HR 3755 to consider recent comments made by Pope Francis who compared abortion to murder.
“It is especially shameful that any self-professed Catholic would be implicated in such an evil, let alone advocate for it,” he wrote. “To Catholic politicians in particular, I implore you to listen to the words of Pope Francis who just last weekend, during his flight back to Rome from Slovakia, said: ‘Abortion is more than a problem. Abortion is homicide … It is a human life, period. And this human life must be respected.”
Democrats in the House of Representatives passed the measure on Sept. 24 with a vote of 218 to 211, so now it’s up to the Senate.
