**** Okay, Catholics, help out a Protestant on this issue. Isnt there something in Catholic doctrine that says that if you support abortion, you have excommunicated yourself? ***
Yes. And it doesn't only pertain to abortion.
Tere seems to be some misconception that to be excommunicated, in effect, you have to get a formal letter from the Pope.

Catholic Doctrine is clear: any Catholic who materially advances the killing of pre-born innocent children excommunicates himself and cuts him/herself off from the Church and its sacraments. Until such time as that person reverses course, repents and changes his or her ways.
In this context, it may be accurate to refer to Biden as an “ex-Catholic”, a “lapsed Catholic” or as someone who was “born Catholic.” But he is not a practicing Catholic now.
Biden’s religion is only for show, in any case. Any person who believes in a Living God who takes an interest in the affairs and conduct of humans could never work to advance the industrial scale, for-profit slaughter of innocent tiny humans. He no more believes in God than Pelosi, Ted Kennedey, Obama or Barbara Boxer do.
