The archbishop’s announcement comes as the right to abortion in the United States is threatened by the Supreme Court. Politics50 years after its historic decision to protect abortion, it seems poised to go backwards.
Shortly after the document was leaked in early May, Nancy Pelosi and Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer described the Supreme Court’s possible decision as “disgusting” in a joint statement.
