Pelosi has self-excommunicated.
She is NOT in communion with the Church.

It is not up to a priest to pick out those who might be receiving unworthily.

I’m Lutheran, not Catholic, and my question is meant to obtain understanding and is in no way an evaluation or critique.

Is it possible that Pelosi has lulled herself into believing she’s safe in her pursuit of abortion rights because communion rights have not been withheld? So, she rationalizes her continued allowance of the Sacrament of Communion by assigning convoluted and illogical confusion within the Church on the topic. Sort of a self-justification mechanism.

Just trying to understand how someone who claims to be a practicing Catholic (or member of any Christian church) could be so disabused of Christian doctrine.

I agree with you (and I'm not even Catholic) as you are exactly right in that statement. The Bible is very clear on this: "Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself." - 1 Cor. 11:27-29.
