American Life League wants USCCB to rule about Communion and pro-abortion politicians

.- American Life League (ALL) announced today in Denver that the organization will hold a press conference tomorrow, June 15, at the media center in front of the site of the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops spring meeting, asking the bishops to rule about Communion and pro-abortion politicians.

“At the press conference, the Crusade will unveil its latest ad encouraging the bishops to adopt a cohesive policy that would utilize the provisions of Church law (Canon 915) to withhold the Eucharist from ‘Catholic’ public figures who advocate abortion, which the Church describes as a grave evil,” an ALL statement says.

The new full-page ad is scheduled to run nationwide in the USA Today.

“As our ad makes clear, there should be no doubt that protecting the Body and Blood of Christ in the form of the Eucharist and enforcing the Church's teachings on the sanctity of all human life are paramount concerns for the bishops,” said Judie Brown, president of American Life League.
 
“That is why we are so hopeful that they will use their time together in Denver to implement a definitive plan of action on how to deal with recalcitrant pro-abortion 'Catholic' public figures that includes the use of Canon Law 915,” she added.
