Archbishop John Donoghue of Atlanta, Georgia Bishop Robert Baker of Charleston, South Carolina Bishop Peter Jugis of Charlotte, North Carolina Statement from Archbishop John Donoghue, Bishop Robert Baker and Bishop Peter Jugis: “We declare that any Catholic serving in public life, especially those running for or elected to public office and espousing positions contrary to the teaching of the Church on the sanctity and inviolability of human life, is not to be admitted to Holy Communion in a Catholic church within our jurisdictions. “Only after reconciliation with the Church has occurred, with the knowledge and consent of the local bishop, and public disavowal of former support for procured abortion, will the individual be permitted to approach the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. “We undertake this action to safeguard the sacred dignity of the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar, to reassure the faithful and to save sinners.”
