The archbishop in San Francisco is calling the Catholic Church to deny prominent pro-abortion Catholics Communion, The Blaze reports.
In the introduction to his letter, Cordileone asserted that promoting abortion negatively impacts human rights and other ethical norms.
“Abortion is the axe laid to the roots of the tree of human rights: when our culture encourages the violation of life at its youngest and most vulnerable condition, other ethical norms cannot stand for long,” the archbishop warned.
“Our responsibility to the rest of the Catholic community is to assure them that the Church of Jesus Christ does take most seriously her mission to care for ‘the least of these,'” he added. Archbishop Cordileone is not the only one who has spoken out against pro-choice Catholics and politicians.
Last week, as reported by Christian Headlines, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) announced that they are considering a ban on President Biden and other pro-choice politicians from taking Communion.
