Canon Lawyer: Ecclesiastical discipline needed – quickly – for Nancy Pelosi

Canon lawyer Edward Peters argues that in light of Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s longstanding an outspoken support for legal abortion, and now her blatant attacks on the Catholic Church’s opposition to the forced insurance coverage of contraception and sterilization, the former Speaker should be subject to clear ecclesiastical discipline:
As a canon lawyer, my view is that Nancy Pelosi deserves to be deprived of holy Communion as the just consequence of her public actions; as her fellow Catholic, my view is that Nancy Pelosi deserves to be deprived of holy Communion to bring home to her and to the wider faith community the gravity of her conduct and the need to avoid such conduct altogether or, that failing, at least to repent of it. Quickly.
