Pelosi receives Communion in Vatican amid abortion debate

Source: AP

ROME (AP) ó U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi met with Pope Francis on Wednesday and received Communion during a papal Mass in St. Peterís Basilica, witnesses said, despite her position in support of abortion rights.

Pelosi attended the morning Mass marking the feasts of St. Peter and St. Paul, during which Francis bestowed the woolen pallium stole on newly consecrated archbishops. She was seated in a VIP diplomatic section of the basilica and received Communion along with the rest of the congregants, according to two people who witnessed the moment.

Pelosiís home archbishop, San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, has said he will no longer allow her to receive the sacrament in his archdiocese because of her support for abortion rights. Cordileone, a conservative, has said Pelosi must either repudiate her support for abortion or stop speaking publicly of her Catholic faith.

Pelosi was banned from taking communion by her SF bishop, so she had to go to Rome. Just goes to prove that rich women will be able to get communion regardless.

Edit: I was trying to make a comment about Pelosi's boss move by going over the Bishop's head and going to his' boss, as well as a sad comment on the state of abortion law as it currently exists in my state. I'm leaving the comment for context but I didn't mean anything against Pelosi.
