Pelosi pushes back on archbishop who denies her Communion

WASHINGTON - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed back Tuesday on the decision by San Francisco’s conservative Catholic archbishop to deny her Communion over her support of abortion rights, saying she respects that people have opposing views but not when they impose them on others.The California Democrat says she comes from a large family with many members who oppose abortion. "I respect people’s views about that. But I don’t respect us foisting it onto others." Pelosi added, "Our archbishop has been vehemently against LGBTQ rights.

In fact, he led the way in an initiative on the ballot in California."Pelosi made her comments on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe." In a letter last week to Pelosi, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said he would refuse her Communion after she vowed to codify into law the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade decision establishing a constitutional right to abortion.

That legislation passed the House but died last week in the Senate.Pelosi said women and families need to know this is about more than abortion. "These same people are against contraception, family planning, in vitro fertilization. It’s a blanket thing and they use abortion as the front man for it."Cordileone has said he told Pelosi that she must either repudiate her support of abortion rights or stop speaking publicly about her Catholic faith.
