Why is this “sin” greater then any other sin in God's eyes and why should a Catholic be absolved from receiving Holy Communion only because of this sin? This thread should prove interesting. For Goodness sakes, Jesus knew the the Deciples were about to betray the Son of Man, deny him, yet he freely offered them his body and blood....

Abortion is the taking of a human life. Catholic politicians have the faith based obligation to protect life; not support its destruction. As Archbishop Burke points out:

“If a person who has been admonished persists in public mortal sin and attempts to receive Communion, the minister of the Eucharist has the obligation to deny it to him. Why? Above all, for the salvation of that person, preventing him from committing a sacrilege,” he added.

This is based on Scripture - 1 Cor. 11:27-30.
