HLI warned the Holy Father about Pelosi

Many faithful Catholics, myself included worried that Nancy Pelosi would use her audience with the Holy Father as a self-affirming photo op. Human Life International among others, made sure that didn’t happen. We have many friends in Rome.

Surely we were not the only organization to let the Holy See know that one of the most influential anti-life politicians in the world was about to exploit a state visit for personal political gain. As most of you are certainly aware, earlier this week House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had the audacity to present herself as a “faithful Catholic” on an official state visit to the Vatican.

Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro, Executive Director of HLI’s Rome office, was able to compile information on her anti-life voting record and her myriad misrepresentations of her Catholic faith in a letter presented directly to the Vatican Secretary of State.

We were very pleased to see that the Holy Father took the opportunity to remind the Speaker about the truth of Catholic teaching on contraception and abortion, and that her desire for a harmless and high profile visit, complete with the usual photo-ops, was thwarted.

As we again approach the holy season of Lent, please join me in praying and fasting to end abortion, and in praying for the conversion of our political leaders who hold such great sway over the lives of the innocent.

    I am pro-life because abortion is not the only way out for a woman with an unwanted pregnancy. In fact, she can choose one of these three options: to raise the child, to abort the pregnancy, or to give up the baby for adoption. By bringing the baby to term and then choosing adoption, she can turn the “unwanted” baby to a “wanted” child for other parents.

      Trem,

      Clearly your position is pro-choice. Of course, we disagree with you just as we disagree with the pro-choice, pro-abortion position in general. But further I see no need to confuse the very language of the discussion when there is already so much confusion and misunderstanding in the discussion as there is, and this not even mentioning the far greater moral confusion involved in the killing of innocent babies.

    Pelosi voted against the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 and for the 1998 Abortion Funding Amendment and she even Pelosi commented that there was disagreement within the Catholic Church about abortion and when life begins
