Nancy Pelosi: The USCCB Responds

Our United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has weighed in on Speaker Pelosi's Meet the Press interview.

Bishops respond to House Speaker Pelosi’s misrepresentation of Church teaching against abortion

WASHINGTON--Cardinal Justin F. Rigali, chairman of the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, and Bishop William E. Lori, chairman of the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Doctrine, have issued the following statement:

In the course of a “Meet the Press” interview on abortion and other public issues on August 24, 2008, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi misrepresented the history and nature of the authentic teaching of the Catholic Church against abortion.

The full statement is right on the Bishops' home page:

The statement also contains three links. The third seems most interesting:

1) "The Catholic Church is a Pro-Life Church"

2) "Statement on Responsibilities of Catholics in Public Life"

3) "Happy Are Those Who Are Called to His Supper”: On Preparing to Receive Christ Worthily in the Eucharist
