SF Archbishop on Pelosi
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco
San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco responded to the comments that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made concerning whether or not a 20 week-old "fetus" is a human being. Pelosi wouldn't answer whether or not a 20-week old baby is a human being. The Archbishop stated that life begins at conception and no Catholic can dissent in good conscience on the church teaching regarding abortion. I agree with that but abortion is a life issue. It's a biblical issue in which God says that the unborn is a human being. It's much more than a Catholic church issue. What's important is what God's word says. That's what counts. It's a human life issue. No doctor has a right to snuff out an unborn child from the mother's womb. In response to what House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says, it goes to show how corrupting an influence politics is regardless of what kind of church they attend. When you're in the realm of politics, Biblical truth and common sense stays outside the door. It's all about being politically correct in the political arena.
