Statement of U.S. Bishops’ Pro Life Chairman on Church’s Teaching in Light of President's Commitment to Codify a National Right to Abortion

WASHINGTON - Last week, President Biden stated that his top legislative priority after the midterm elections will be codifying a national right to abortion. Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, issued the following response emphasizing the teaching of the Catholic Church on upholding the dignity of human life: 

“The President is gravely wrong to continue to seek every possible avenue to facilitate abortion, instead of using his power to increase support and care to mothers in challenging situations. This single-minded extremism must end, and we implore President Biden to recognize the humanity in preborn children and the genuine life-giving care needed by women in this country. As pastors who deal daily with the tragic impacts of abortion, we know that abortion is a violent act which ends the life of preborn children and wounds untold numbers of women. The Catholic Church wishes to continue in our work with our government and leaders to protect the right to life of every human being and to ensure that pregnant and parenting mothers are fully supported in the care of their children before and after birth.”

Bishop Lori has said it well. The President has chosen to align himself with the most radical elements of the pro choice movement with the proposed codification of Roe vs Wade. It is very sad state of affairs when the second Catholic President fails to promote and support a culture of life. The Bishop is right to call out the President. This proposal is profoundly wrong. We appreciate the moral courage that is on display on the part of Bishop Lori in this public statement. We all need to pray for our Bishops in their efforts to promote a culture.

I believe the bishops also ought to tell hin that he can no longer receive thr Body, blood,soul and divinity of Jesus until he stops promoting the violent act of abortion and goes to confession.

I agree, but I would define abortion as much more than a violent act. It permanently ends the Earthly life of a person, who has a soul, who now cannot have the chance to serve God in this life. The mother and father and all facilitators will have to answer to God - and that person who's life was taken - to account for their actions.
