Why haven't Pelosi and Gillibrand been excommunicated?

Pelosi and Gillibrand are Planned Parenthood worshipers who use women's health as a euphemism for acts that the Catholic Church condemns as grave sins.

Former Speaker, current House Democratic leader and self-described "ardent Catholic" Nancy Pelosi wants the federal government to require self-insured religious institutions, such as the Catholic church in Washington, D.C., to directly pay for contraception and abortifacients.

At a press conference Pelosi was asked whether the Catholic Church in Washington, D.C. should be required to pay for these morning-after pills and birth control if they find that morally objectionable?"

Note to questioner: There's no doubt about it! The Catholic Church finds that morally objectionable.

Pelosi replied: "Yes, I think that all institutions who cover, who give, health insurance should cover the full range of health insurance issues for women."

Pelosi seems to have sold her soul to Planned Parenthood.

The Free Exercise of the First Amendment to the Constitution means that government must not compel such an unconscionable thing.

New York junior Senator Kristen Gillibrand, who likewise claims to be Catholic, likewise rejects fundamental church teaching.

In addition to embracing the original proposed contraception/sterilization/abortion insurance mandate and lamenting the still unconstitutional "compromise" presented by the Obama Administration, Gillibrand has backed United States taxpayer funding of COERCED abortions.

On March 2, 2009, an amendment to the omnibus appropriations act for fiscal year 2009 seeking to ensure that money which was sent to the United Nations from the United States was not used in programs the sought to limit populations through forced sterilization or coercive abortion. The amendment specifically mentioned the programs in China. Gillibrand voted against the amendment to prevent aid funds from being used for coercive abortions.

Pelosi and Gillibrand are not in communion with the Catholic Church.

Pelosi and Gillibrand are Planned Parenthood worshipers who use women's health as a euphemism for acts that the Catholic Church condemns as grave sins.

When will the Catholic bishops learn than tolerating such scandalous behavior only makes matters worse?
