American Life League has published an ad in today's Washington Times alerting all Catholics, laity and clergy alike, that while the recent elections may be over, the scandal of pro-abortion Catholic public figures and the reception of Holy Communion continues. "With the defeat of the most pro-abortion Catholic public figure to ever seek the White House, many believe that this crisis can now take a backseat," said Judie Brown, president of American Life League. "That couldn't be farther from the truth. The problem is not going away until all of the bishops in the country actively enforce the Church's clear teachings on this matter." Today's Washington Times ad is being run in conjunction with the annual meeting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in Washington, D.C. "At last year's USCCB meeting in Washington, not one bishop committed to enforce Canon 915 and withhold Holy Communion from pro-abortion Catholic public figures," said Brown. "Going into this year's D.C. meeting, at least 10 bishops have taken very strong positions against this scandal. We pray that all bishops will join these courageous men in defending the faith of the Church." American Life League's Crusade for the Defense of Our Catholic Church has been actively exposing the scandal of pro-abortion Catholic public figures and the reception of Holy Communion for almost two years now, and will continue the campaign until all U.S. bishops uphold Church teachings. "The Catholic bishops are bound, by their vocation, to teach and defend the faith," said Brown. "This campaign has absolutely nothing to do with politics and everything to do with the clear and simple Catholic teaching that you cannot be both Catholic and pro-abortion."
