The Roman Catholic Arch-Bishop of San Francisco has now taken the unprecedented step of officially banning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from receiving communion in any church in his jurisdiction.
The move reportedly comes in response to Pelosi’s recent vote to codify Roe vs. Wade into law.
Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone made the announcement on Twitter on Friday:
After numerous attempts to speak with Speaker Pelosi to help her understand the grave evil she is perpetrating, the scandal she is causing, an the danger to her own soul she is risking, I have determined that she is not to be admitted to Holy Communion. https://t.co/l7M85CyG86

The move comes as the Supreme Court prepares to soon issue an official ruling on a Mississippi case in which many court watchers expect the body to finally strike down Roe vs. Wade, sending the issue of abortion back to the states.
