Wade, saying a Catholic legislator’s support for abortion is a “grave sin.

” 2019 A pastor at a Catholic church in Florence, South Carolina, denied then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden communion while on the campaign trail because “any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching,” the Florence Morning News reported . 2009 Rhode Island’s top Catholic leader Bishop Thomas Tobin publicly revealed he had asked then-Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.

I. ) to stop taking communion due to his support for abortion rights in February 2007. 2008 After Biden was nominated as the vice presidential candidate in the 2008 Election, Bishop Joseph Francis Martino of Biden’s hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, also said Biden would be refused communion in the parish due to his support for abortion.

2007 St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke said he would deny then-Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani communion due to his pro-choice views, telling the St. Louis Post-Dispatch at the time, “if the question is about a Catholic who is publicly espousing positions contrary to the moral law,” he would deny them communion.

2004 Burke also said he would not give communion to Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry communion during the 2004 Election cycle, in part because of Kerry’s stance on abortion. Surprising Fact While former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was never denied communion, he did face calls from some Catholic leaders to be excommunicated from the church in 2019 after he signed one of the most expansive abortion rights bills in U.

S. history into law. Cuomo’s father, Mario Cuomo, was also warned of excommunication while he served as New York’s governor.

News Peg Pelosi said in an interview with MSNBC Tuesday she comes from a largely anti-abortion Catholic family, so she respects people with those views. “We just have to be prayerful, we have to be respectful,” she said, “but I don’t respect us foisting it onto others. ” Key Background The Vatican sent a letter to U.

S. bishops last year warning against denying communion to supporters of abortion rights, and urging their discretion in decisions that could be seen as political. The Vatican wrote in the letter it would be misleading to present abortion and as one of “the only grave matters of Catholic moral and social teaching that demand the fullest accountability on the part of Catholics.

” Crucial Quote Biden, the second Catholic president, had a meeting with Pope Francis in October at the Vatican and said the Pope told him he was a “good Catholic” and that Biden should keep “receiving communion. ” Biden received communion one day later at St. Patrick’s Church in Rome.
