American Life League's Crusade for Defense of our Catholic Church has unveiled 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. The new full-page ad is scheduled to run nationwide in 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." "Recently the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, announced that October 2004 would mark the beginning of the year of the Eucharist," said Joseph M. Starrs, director of the Crusade. "In light of this, many faithful Catholics are looking to the bishops for leadership on the question of pro-abortion Catholics defiantly receiving the sacrament of Holy Communion," said Starrs. "Our new ad is designed to encourage the bishops to speak out in one, unified voice that enforces Canon law and protects the Eucharist by making clear to all that one cannot be a Catholic in good standing and support abortion in the least way."
