Pelosi on abortion

TheHill reported In a rare public rebuke of a top politician, the archbishop of Washington said Monday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was incorrect when she recently said the moment of conception has long been a matter of controversy within the Catholic Church.... The release quoted Pelosi as saying the church has not been able to come with a definition of when life begins. “After Mr. Tom Brokaw, the interviewer, pointed out that the Catholic Church feels strongly that life begins at conception, she replied, 'I understand. And this is, like, maybe 50 years or something like that. So again, over the history of the church, this is an issue of controversy,' " the release said.... Wuerl pointed out that the Catechism of the Catholic Church is clear, and has been clear for 2,000 years. He cited Catechism language that reads, "Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception … Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law.”.... Pelosi, a Roman Catholic whose district includes most of San Francisco, said she has not encountered such difficulties in her church.
Maybe Rome needs to change Bishops in San Francisco.
“I think some of it is regional,” she said, “It depends on the bishop of a certain region,
So God's law varies depending on the wishes of the local bishop? Does the bishop have his own interpretation of the 10 commandments?
and, fortunately for me, communion has not been withheld and I’m a regular communicant, so that would be a severe blow to me if that were the case.”
Why? Does she like to pretend she is a Catholic even though she does not agree with the Catholic faith?
Catholic House Republicans respond to Pelosi’s abortion lies and the Obama campaign has asked Pelosi to shut her mouth.
