    A group of Democratic legislators in Rhode Island passed a bill that would enshrine safeguards at the state level. They wanted to make sure federal restrictions could not affect a woman’s right to choose, no matter the future of Roe v. Wade.

    But on Jan. 26, days after the 47th anniversary of that landmark legal case, one Rhode Island priest (Richard Bucci) has issued a damning rebuke: Any lawmakers who voted in favor of the law, he said, would be barred from receiving Communion or taking on special roles at church functions.

    “In accord with the teaching of the Catholic Church for 2000 years, the following members of the legislature may NOT receive Holy Communion, as are all the general officers of the state of Rhode Island, as well as Rhode Island’s members of Congress,” the note said. “In addition, they will not be allowed to act as witnesses to marriage, godparents, or lectors at weddings, funerals, or any other church function.”

    Has the church really banned abortions for 2000 years?

    Nope.

    It IS true that the Catholic church currently opposed abortion, but their position has really only existed (with minor exceptions) since roughly 1750

    State Rep. Julie Casimiro (D), who voted in favor of the bill, said that the Rhode Island General Assembly should take a page out of Bucci’s book and distribute a flier naming priests accused of sexual assault and telling them they are “not welcome at the State House,” she wrote on Facebook, according to the Journal.

    Yes, these idiots still live in 1200; they likely don't have clue where baby's and themselves come from. Let's stone the witches! Thus use your brain an don't vote for Biden, because he's an staunch Catholic and "believes" all of this B.S and that Jesus will save his ass and this country now "owned" by the Trump family, who believes everything as well, if it will get him votes. What a country!

    Despite the fact that he is utterly unqualified to be president, we have relatives who voted for Trump ONLY because of the abortion issue.

    An article in lifesitenews laid it our for them:

    "In the 2016 presidential election, there is “a fundamental divergence not only of the candidates but of the parties” when it comes to the foundational issue of the right to life, Priests for Life National Director Father Frank Pavone told LifeSiteNews.

    “There are certain positions that a public official takes which disqualify them from public office,” Pavone said. “Abortion is a disqualifying position. To be in support of the killing of innocent children disqualifies you. It doesn’t matter how good you are on other issues. It really doesn’t matter because you have undermined even your position on those other issues.”

    Let me repeat that for you.

    It doesn’t matter how good you are on other issues. It really doesn’t matter because you have undermined even your position on those other issues.”

    Trump, of course, was "pro-choice" most of his adult life, and only switched to "pro-life" in 2012, when he was thinking about running for president in 2012.

    Its unlikely that the SC will make abortion illegal again, but its remotely possible they will over turn RvW, handing it back to each state to write their own abortion laws. That would mean some states it will remain fully legal, other states permitted with restrictions, and others where they pass laws to make it first degree murder of a child even if a women goes out of state where its legal, and even if she is only two weeks pregnant.

    Question: Does the Republican party really want Roe v Wade over turned?

    The issue is one hell of a Republican voting issue. Take away that one issue significantly weakens the party's platform. Its like that Star Trek episode where two warring parties on a planet really don't want to solve problems or comprise because it takes away their reason to exist.
