Should Pro-Abortion Politicians be Allowed to Receive Communion at Church? Take Action With Us…

Brenna Lewis - 12 Jun 2021


Students for Life is rallying to Fight for Life & Faith on Wednesday, June 16th. Click here to join us! 

Not many people know the demographic makeup of American women who have abortions. The data is fairly shocking. According to the Guttmacher Institute (Planned Parenthood’s research arm)54% of women who pay for abortions self-identify as practicing Christians. 

Practicing Christians… meaning Catholics and Protestants who attend church and actively participate in their faith.  

If we ever hope to abolish abortion in our nation, we must convince Christian women to stop having them. The question is, why are the majority of abortion customers Christian? 

The answer: they aren’t being guided by their faith leaders. Priests, pastors, or even higher-ups in church leadership are dropping the ball, or, in some egregious cases, even running it in the wrong direction. We have to get the leaders of our churches to stand up and say what abortion really is…violence against human beings which violates the fundamental belief that every human person has intrinsic dignity and value…AND hold them accountable for guiding their flock. 

And it starts with demanding that church leaders to hold public officials like President Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who profess their Catholic faith to woo voters while simultaneously supporting and voting for abortion, accountable.

For example, President Biden recently introduced his budget plan to the United State Congress and, for the first time in more than four decades, left out the Hyde Amendment from it. That means it will force every American to pay for abortions, up until the moment of birth. In April, when President Biden’s White House Spokesperson was asked how President Biden can call himself a faithful Catholic while supporting taxpayer funded research on aborted babies, she replied, “We respectfully disagree.” (Read more about President Biden’s First 100 Anti-Life Days here.) 

Next week, the most influential assembly of the Catholic hierarchy in the United States, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), will decide whether or not to discuss what priests should do when Catholics insist on receiving Holy Communion despite publicly supporting abortion, which is strictly forbidden by the Catholic Church. 

In advance of next week’s important Bishop meeting, a massive PR campaign has been launched by the abortion lobby to pressure the Catholic Church to stay silent on this issue.  

This is unacceptable, and Students for Life is taking a stand. 

Catholics and Christians of all faiths backgrounds will be gathering in select cities on NOON (local time) on Wednesday, June 16th for Fight for Life & Faith Rallies to urge all Catholic Bishops and clergy to follow their faith and protect the preborn.

  • Cardinal Timothy Dolan 
    • Location: St. Patrick’s Cathedral (5th Ave, New York, NY) 
    • Time: 12:00PM ET

Here are the Bishops We’ll Be Encouraging… 

Unfortunately, some Bishops have been working to stall and stifle efforts by their fellows to address the scandal of radical, pro-abortion politicians receiving the sacrament of Communion, leading to confusion among Christians worldwide. We’ll be gathering at the following locations to urge these Bishops reevaluate their views and uphold this crucial tenet of the faith and to defend the lives of the most vulnerable in their dioceses. 

  • Cardinal Blase Cupich 
    • Location: Holy Name Cathedral (730 N Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL) 
    • Time: 12:00PM CT 
  • Cardinal Wilton Gregory 
    • Location: Basilica of the Immaculate Conception (400 Michigan Ave NE, Washington, DC) 
    • Time: 12:00PM ET 

As one of the most powerful bodies of Christian leaders on the world stage, it is the USCCB’s responsibility to shepherd believers toward the truth, defend the Christian faith, and protect the innocent lives made in God’s image. And some of these Catholic Bishops need a little reminding of those responsibilities. 

Take Action!
