Mayors don't influence abortions in any country that I know of.
Sure they do, along with District Attorneys and local Judges. They are the primary problem in fact. Mayors appoint Police Chiefs, who have the power to order the arrest of abortionists for murder. Mayors also control Departments of License and Inspections which have the power to shut down the Abortuary charnel houses. District Attorneys have the power to prosecute them and Judges should be tossing them in jail or sending them to see Old Sparky.
The dereliction of duty by these officials in the face of Roe vs. Wade is the primary reason we have widespread abortion.
The Supreme Court has zero power to enforce its unjust decisions. It has no police and no power of the purse. We suffer abortions because we elect moral cowards and heretics where we should be electing MEN.
That Pope John Paul II gives communion to heretics who support legal abortion is a moral shame and disgrace. He of all people should know better, since it was he who removed all debate on the topic by solemnly dogmatizing the moral teaching against abortion in Evangelium Vitae.

You are absolutely right H-t-C. It is astonishing at how easily this thread, filled with opinion from good Catholics could feed the ammo of the Enemy.
Stop and think: Do mistakes, accidents not happen anymore? Who has posted [from the "fact filled" comprehensive article] what JPII's reaction is to this incident? Is the communion line for the Pope's distribution somehow monitored so that the recipient's state of grace is guaranteed? Did the Italian man meet with his bishop to clear up his pro-
death choice position so that he could worthily receive Communion? Do you believe that John Paul II did this purposely?
Lastly, lest a lurker think this thread's content expresses otherwise: it is NEVER appropriate to use the Most Holy Eucharist as some sort of "gotchya tool" to further an opinion/agenda on a matter. NEVER!!!!
