Kudos to Bishop O'Malley, OFM, Cap.
and notice to "some" Catholic Freepers, notably 2 -- Did bishop O'Malley say they were excommunicated? No, he did not. Why didn't he? Because, at the present time, there are no canon laws which say that one can be excommunicated for voting for abortion only those who "procure" an abortion. Yes, the politicians are not in a state of grace and can not receive holy communion until they go to confession.
Now, this does not mean the church can not change their rules. If you want the mother church to change her rules, write to your Bishop, Bishop Gregory and to the Pope. And sign this petition: http://www.cathfam.org/cfexcom/Excom.html

Thank you for that link. I was unaware of this petition.
Thanks for the heads up!
