Catholic Nancy Pelosi to receive abortion provider’s Margaret Sanger Award, and she’s still not excommunicated

The scandal of Nancy Pelosi’s public support of killing babies through abortion continues with the new that Planned Parenthood are recognising her  with their highest honour, the Margaret Sanger Award. This is the second award Nancy Pelosi has recieved from one of the world’s providers of industrial scale killing of human beings, in 2010 she received  the Champion for Women’s Health award from Planned Parenthood. Cardinal Raymond Burke has publicly stated many times that Nancy Pelosi should be excommunicated for her advocacy of abortion but her local bishop continues to fail to act on the advice of the Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura.

LifeSite News reports:

‘The highest-ranking Catholic Democrat in the House of Representatives will receive an award from the nation’s largest abortion provider.

On Friday morning, Planned Parenthood announced it would be awarding House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi its Margaret Sanger Award, the group’s “highest honor.”

Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards said it gave her “great pleasure” to bestow “our highest recognition of leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement” to the former House Speaker.

“No one is more deserving of this honor than Leader Pelosi, who has fought tirelessly throughout her career to protect and expand women’s access to health care.”

Chief among the reasons for granting the award is Pelosi’s “leadership in passing the Affordable Care Act,” conventionally known as ObamaCare, which Richards called “the greatest advancement for women’s health in a generation.”

Critics have said Margaret Sanger is not very “distinguished company,” given her support of eugenics. Sanger referred to certain people as “human weeds” and partnered with the Ku Klux Klan to reduce the growth of “undesirable” populations.

The website likened the prize to being named ‘Eugenicist of the Year’.

Protect the Pope comment: Cardinal Burke has insisted that pro-abortion politicians must be denied Holy Communion, specifically naming Nancy Pelosi as such a Catholic politician and still the US bishops fail to act against this grave sacrilege against the Blessed Sacrament and the sanctity of human life. Cardinal Burke said the following recently in response to a question in The Wanderer Catholic newspaper:

The Wanderer Catholic newspaper: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, when recently questioned at a press briefing about the moral difference between what Dr. Gosnell did in murdering a baby born alive at 23 weeks as compared to the practice of aborting a baby moments before birth, refused to answer. Instead she is reported to have responded: “ As a practicing and respectful Catholic this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this. I don’t think it should have anything to do with politics.” How are we to react to such a seemingly scandalous statement? Is this a case where Canon 915 might properly be applied? [Editor’s Note:Canon 915 of the Church’s Code of Canon Law states that those who are “ obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”]

Cardinal Burke: Certainly this is a case when Canon 915 must be applied. This is a person who obstinately, after repeated admonitions, persists in a grave sin — cooperating with the crime of procured abortion — and still professes to be a devout Catholic. This is a prime example of what Blessed John Paul II referred to as the situation of Catholics who have divorced their faith from their public life and therefore are not serving their brothers and sisters in the way that they must — in safeguarding and promoting the life of the innocent and defenseless unborn, in safeguarding and promoting the integrity of marriage and the family.

What Congresswoman Pelosi is speaking of is not particular confessional beliefs or practices of the Catholic Church. It belongs to the natural moral law which is written on every human heart and which the Catholic Church obviously also teaches: that natural moral law which is so wonderfully illumined for us by Our Lord Jesus Christ by His saving teaching, but most of all by His Passion and death.

To say that these are simply questions of Catholic Faith which have no part in politics is just false and wrong. I fear for Congresswoman Pelosi if she does not come to understand how gravely in error she is. I invite her to reflect upon the example of St. Thomas More who acted rightly in a similar situation even at the cost of his life.’

Will the US bishops just ignore the fact that Nancy Pelosi is the recipient of Planned Parenthood’s highest honour, the Margaret Sanger Award? Their silence and inaction is incomprehensible and a cause of grave dismay among the faithful.

  • Bernadette

    Pelosi – you are one thing or another, you cannot be both. You have chosen the wrong path – live with it or abandon it.

  • Andrzej

    The lack of action on the part of Rome and local bishops it countless such cases can be reasonably only attributed to fear. And I think the most likely cause of this fear is that governments or particular individuals – via their extensive and often unethical espionage and surveillance agencies – have gathered in their hands documents incriminating people in the Church.

    Blackmail is the only sensible answer to this puzzling behavior.

  • Bosco

    Will Ireland’s Enda Kenny be the honorary Eucharistic Minister?

  • Joseph Matthew

    I wonder if Pelosi knows that Margaret Sanger was a racist who stated her desire to get rid of the “negro” population by means of birth control? Or that she was somewhat close to Hitler?

  • Joseph Matthew

    On further reflection, at least Sanger made it clear that she was no longer a Catholic.

  • Terry

    What good earthly honors?

    We should pray for her, and for the other catholic (small c) politicians who have abandoned their faith in the public square. They will be held accountable, so we should pray that they be given the grace of repentnace before it is too late.

  • Michael Petek

    What good doth it profit anyone to gain the whole world and lose her soul? Yet Nancy Pelosi sells her soul to Satan for a shabby ornament for her mantelpiece.

  • Bridget

    I have just left a message on Nancy Pelosi’s facebook page. Maybe those of you who are on facebook would like to do likewise, or ‘Like’ messages already there. I feel it is time we got proactive.

  • Andrzej

    The thrill these people get (Pelosi, Enda Kenny) is precisely that they are the ones holding the bishops by their…throats?

  • Shaun

    Maybe she can draw attention to herself by attending exclusively the Latin Mass or perhaps by calling into question the authority of Vatican II.

  • Michael B Rooke

    There is a profile of Margaret Sanger on the EWTN website dated 1993.
    “Jesus Christ
    Mrs. Sanger, who did not have faith in God, and detested all those
    who did, wrote:
    “I never liked to look at Jesus on the Cross. I could not see any
    good it did to keep looking at him. We could not help him, as he had
    been crucified long ago.”[3]”

    Margaret Sanger was against abortion
    ” I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in
    America each year are a disgrace to civilization. . .”[11]
    The same article wrote “In 1918, when she wrote the above, no
    religious denomination accepted the practice of contraception. Well,
    you sell it to the people by insisting that with better contraception
    there would be less abortion!”

    The digital subscription edition * of today’s ( 4 Feb 2014) Daily Telegraph has an article entitled
    ‘ Two in three abortions follow protected sex’
    ‘Two thirds of women were using protection when they conceived figures show. Britains biggest abortion provider the British Pregnancy Advisory Service ( BPAS) said that 66% of terminations occurred despite the use of some form of contraception.’

    * The same article is not at present on the Daily Telegraph web site.

    The teaching of the Catholic Church is to work with nature not against it.

    What is wrong with the Bishop ? Why does he not excommunicate her

  • Lynda

    One of countless scandals and sources of loss of Faith and morals in the Church. As Bernadette Smyth has said part of the reason for Ireland “legalising” the intentional killing of babies in their mothers’ wombs is that God was left out of the fight.
