September 2021 – While Catholic bishops met for one of their biannual general assemblies in June to conduct business and address matters of concern, a pro-life Catholic group, Students for Life of America (SLA), gathered outside Roman Catholic cathedrals in seven cities.
The group held rallies urging bishops to “address the scandal of radical, pro-abortion politicians receiving the sacrament of Communion.”
SLA president Kristan Hawkins spoke at one of the events. “Today, the pro-life generation is asking the leaders of the Catholic Church to practice what it preaches,” Hawkins said, “and we’re asking that of every single denomination.
“We aren’t here to debate Catholic Church teaching on the matter; the Church teaching is absolutely clear. Supporting the murder of innocent children is incompatible with the faithful practice of Catholicism. Now, we just need our Catholic leaders to act like it.”
It is anticipated that the bishops will address the issue and present their decision on the matter to the public at a later date.
