Pope Benedict meets Nancy Pelosi

After the meeting, the Vatican Press Office issued this statement:

"Following the General Audience, the Holy Father briefly greeted Mrs. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, together with her entourage. His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church’s consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception until natural death, which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists, and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of development."


We can only pray that Pelosi, as well as other Catholic legislators who consistently vote to promote abortion, will take the Pope's words to heart. Note that the statement refers to the "natural moral law" in this regard. Taking an innocent human life is part of the natural law, the law of reason that all people know in their hearts. May it penetrate Nancy Pelosi's heart too!

Yes, this is often left out of the debate, the natural side of it.
It also removes her ability to pull the "well I can't impose my religion on any one" card.
As far as we have come, as blessed as we are with science and our Holy Mother Church's teaching on this matter, it is amazing that she can't/won't consider this seriously.
