US Bishops Statement “It is grievous that one of President Biden’s first official acts actively promotes the destruction of human lives..." on Promotion of Abortion - FULL TEXT



 Bishops Decry Executive Order that Promotes Abortion Overseas

JANUARY 28, 2021

WASHINGTON – Today, President Joe Biden signed an executive order allowing U.S. taxpayer funds to be sent to organizations that both promote and provide abortions in developing countries. The policy which he overturned, known as both the Mexico City and the Promoting Life in Global Health policy, had separated abortion from family planning activities and ensured U.S. taxpayer dollars only went to organizations that agreed to provide health services in a way that respected the dignity of all persons.

Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City in Kansas, and chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities and Bishop David J. Malloy of Rockford, and chairman of the Committee on International Justice and Peace, responded:

“It is grievous that one of President Biden’s first official acts actively promotes the destruction of human lives in developing nations. This Executive Order is antithetical to reason, violates human dignity, and is incompatible with Catholic teaching. We and our brother bishops strongly oppose this action. We urge the President to use his office for good, prioritizing the most vulnerable, including unborn children. As the largest non-government health care provider in the world, the Catholic Church stands ready to work with him and his administration to promote global women’s health in a manner that furthers integral human development, safeguarding innate human rights and the dignity of every human life, beginning in the womb. To serve our brothers and sisters with respect, it is imperative that care begin with ensuring that the unborn are free from violence, recognizing every person as a child of God. We hope the new administration will work with us to meet these significant needs.”

Donald Trump was the most pro-life president but he never received much credit for that. It was obvious the democrats were going to go in the opposite direction.

Democrats don't care about anything but money and control

If the Pope or these Bishops want to really make a statement, excommunicate Biden and that witch Pelosi. But just like the pedophile priest scandal, they don't have the courage or conviction to do ANYTHING that has any teeth. Possibly Biden and Pelosi donate enough money to the church, to make them too valuable to kick out.

As a Catholic, it saddens me to have people like Pelosi and Biden abuse their so-called faith for political gains. Pelosi says that as a Catholic she doesn't hate. That's a farce. her hatred is so embedded in her Liberal skull that she can barely say Trump without needing a drink to get thru the sentence. Biden has shown just how deep his faith is by turning his back on the abortion issue to get the votes. Both deserve to be excommunicated.

Priests should not give Holy Communion to politicians who advocate abortion. However, many are spineless.

Trump never got credit for all the good he did for Americans, for the unborn and for world peace. He was the outsider who would not play ball with their corruption so they went on a path to destroy him and his family. Who is "they"? Democrats, their supporters, dark money, big tech and the biggest culprit MSM !

In my opinion the Bishops were not harsh enough on Biden. They are pussyfooting around with this letter. They should have demanded he reverse these orders or be excommunicated from the Catholic Church. He's no Catholic! He made fun of Trump holding the Bible ...well Biden and his wife are a disgrace using their Catholicism to make them appear"hollier than thou" but they are anything but! Disgraceful..dishonest..beings!

I agree with you 100% ..they should be excommunicated but this Pope is as useless as they come. Hes no religious leader...he's a politician serving the left...sucking up to Biden. He refused to receive Pompeo bc he said it would seem too political before an election....really? How dishonest csn you get...he's a jerk and a disgrace...he can't be ousted soon enough for me.

I totally agree and he committed adultry with Jill.

Gary Brown said...

Forget Communion. Excommunicate them.

Impeachment is simply to distract from 2020 election fraud. 22 cases still pending . 2 judges have ok's forensic audits. Not hearing much about it on the news. I haven't forgotten! #AmericaVotedTrump Everytime they've attacked him , it was to distract from something coming out on them.

Go to Mike lindell dot com and see fraud proof video recently posted. Share it with ALL your contacts. YouTube and vimeo have removed it because election fraud proof " doesn't meet their community standards."

When will the Catholic Church excommunicate President Joe Biden? That would be in keeping with Scripture for an unrepentant sinner in direct contradiction to the Bible and to Catholic doctrine.

When? I suggest NOW.

You are 100% correct, thank you!

Biden should be excommunicated NOW. How can he claim to be Catholic and promote abortion? He is a disgrace to the human race, let alone the Catholic Church.

Any priest, bishop, archbishop that agrees to provide biden with communion should be excommunicated. It’s the same as providing aid to the enemy. But these gutless wonders want to play nice in case he comes after the church. Well folks, it’s already happening. biden already gave a post to the individual who originally went after The Little Sisters. We have garbage leading the church. If they want to lose more members of the church, they can continue to be the spineless from the pope on down.
