Pro-life group raps Pelosi "celebration tour"

Washington, Jan. 3, 2007 ( – An American pro-life group has appealed to three different US archbishops, urging the prelates to stop a “celebration tour” by the incoming Speaker of the US House of Representatives, a Catholic politician who supports abortion.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi has planned high-profile stops at churches in Baltimore and in Washington, DC, as part of her celebration. The American Life League (ALL) argues that the incoming Speaker is “using the Catholic Church as a pawn in her political game.”

"It is unconscionable for Rep. Pelosi to claim that the Catholic faith is an important part of her life while she relentlessly, categorically denies the teachings of the Church by supporting the killing of children through abortion," said Judie Brown, president of ALL. The group has placed a full-page ad in the Washington Times urging Church leaders to speak out in order to prevent the confusion and “grave scandal” that could arise from Pelosi’s stance.

The ALL plea was directed to Cardinal William Keeler of Baltimore and Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington, DC– the two prelates in whose archdioceses the “celebration tour” will make stops– and Archbishop George Niederauer of San Francisco, where the incoming Speaker makes her residence.
