Catholic bishops dropped a bombshell on Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrat party by condemning taxpayer funds being allocated for abortion.
Pelosi, who claims to be a practicing Catholic, has been under serious pressure from the staunchly pro-life Catholic church.
Leaders of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a joint condemnation of taxpayer-funded abortion included in the recently passed “American Rescue Plan.”
The group issued a statement saying, “For 45 years, the United States Congress – whether controlled by Democrats or Republicans – has maintained that taxpayers should not be forced against their conscience to pay for abortions. Abandoning this compromise in a time of national emergency only serves to divide people in the very moment we should be united.”
This statement puts all eyes on both Pelosi and President Biden, who also claims to be a practicing Catholic. The church’s stance on abortion is crystal clear, and before long, they may begin ramping up pressure on Catholics to vote Democrats out.
The Catholic problem will certainly be something to watch as the midterm elections approach. Democrats are already in a tough spot, and making more enemies will not help their cause.
