A.L.L.’S JUDIE BROWN HOPES TO SEE PELOSI IN CONFESSION LINE
Washington, D.C. (17 February 2009) – The following is a statement from Judie Brown, president of American Life League on the Wednesday meeting between U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Pope Benedict XVI.
“The only photo-op I hope to see out of Rep. Pelosi’s meeting with the Holy Father Wednesday is the House Speaker in the Confessional line. Pelosi’s adamant support for abortion and the anti-life agenda of the American left is utterly incompatible with her self-described ‘ardent’ Catholicism.
Pelosi has been defiant toward the admonitions of the American bishops; has misrepresented Catholic teaching on the question of when the human being’s life begins and is a rabid supporter of abortifacient contraception.
It is our prayer that the words of the Holy Father resound in Pelosi’s ears and open her heart to the great evil she is helping inflict on the United States:’How can it be that the most wondrous and sacred human space – the womb – has become a place of unutterable violence?'”
