Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Should pro-abortion Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius become President Barack Obama’s health secretary, she will likely be asked to continue refraining from receiving communion at Washington-area Catholic churches. In May 2008, her own archbishop told her to not present herself for communion.
Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of the Archdiocese of Kansas City called on Sebelius to take the “necessary steps for amendment of her life” because of her strongly pro-abortion position.
He said Sebelius needs to refrain from receiving communion until she changes her position supporting abortion.
Now, two Washington area bishops, Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington and Bishop Paul Loverde of Arlington, Virginia, both said they would enforce the communion request Naumann put in place if Sebelius lives within their jurisdictions.
