Dem slammed for saying abortion is consistent with Catholic faith: 'Go to confession'

Democratic Rep. Rosa DeLauro was blasted on social media Tuesday over a tweet explaining why her Catholic faith inspired her to “defend a women’s right to access abortion.”

“I am a Catholic — baptized, raised, and confirmed,” the Connecticut Democrat posted on Monday along with a link to a statement from Catholic Democrats explaining their opposition to the repeal of Roe v. Wade on the one-year anniversary of the decision.

“The fundamental tenets of my faith compel me to defend a women’s right to access abortion,” she added. “I am proudly part of the faithful large majority of US Catholics who support legal protections for abortion access.”

DeLauro’s tweet was widely panned and “ratioed” on Twitter, primarily by Catholics who pointed out that Catholic teaching views abortion as a “moral evil.”

“All you had to say was: ‘I was raised Catholic, but I struggle with this teaching of my faith…’ Most people can understand that,” conservative strategist Giancarlo Sopo tweeted. “None of us are perfect. Grossly distorting a faith shared by over 1 billion people just to fit your politics is some narcissistic bulls—.”
