Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of the Roman Catholic diocese of Springfield, Illinois, is upholding a 2004 decision to block Sen. Dick Durbin from receiving Holy Communion due to his pro-abortion rights views. A statement issued by Bishop Paprocki on Feb. 13 said Mr. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, was among 14 Catholic members of the U.S. Senate who voted against the Pain-Capable Unborn Children’s Act last month, which would have banned abortions nationwide after 20 weeks post-fertilization. The bill failed to pass cloture – receiving 51 votes in favor and 46 against – and could not proceed to a vote on final passage.

    Bishop Paprocki is serious about his faith as we who call ourselves believers should all be. Hopefully Senator Durbin wouldn’t expect to receive holy communion while condoning such a murderous act upon the unborn. If only those mass murdered in abortion clinics had the same support as the students murdered in Florida….. What a disturbing double standard the Democrats live, or are they really concerned about life at all.?
