The Catholic Bishops of the U.S. voted in June to initiate the drafting of a teaching document on the Eucharist. One of the areas covered in this document has been called Eucharistic coherence. This refers to the teaching that Catholics who receive Communion should live and act in a manner consistent with the faith of the Church.
This naturally touches upon the problem of Catholic politicians publicly supporting policies such as abortion that are contrary to Church teaching, while presenting themselves to receive the Blessed Sacrament. 
Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego says that despite the pro-abortion policies of the Biden Administration and other Catholic public officials, Joseph Biden should still be able to receive communion:
“I do not see how depriving the president or other political leaders of the Eucharist on their public policy stance can be interpreted in our society as anything other than a weaponization of the Eucharist … to pummel them into submission.”
While sympathetic to the Bishop’s pastoral sensitivity, in this scenario, the Eucharist is not the weapon.
Rather, it is the cultural imperialism of Western nations that use foreign aid like a virus to spread the deadly fruits of abortion and the new sexual revolution. This revolution features the aggressive promotion of sexual immorality and the LBGT agendas in developing countries.
While China continues to focus on economic self-interest in their expansion of foreign aid in developing nations, the West, led by the Biden Administration, has some bloody strings attached to their funds.
This is especially pernicious in nations like Uganda that do not share what Lois McLatchie of ADF International calls the “cosmo-girl feminism” of western elites. Even COVID-19 relief packages are not immune from the abortion evangelists.
“Our sex-obsessed thumbprint finds itself on all manner of unrelated emergency aid packages… UNFPA’s COVID-19 relief packages include box kits with “reproductive health materials” for women and girls. The kits contain a variety of abortion-related items such as vacuum extractors and cranioclasts for crushing fetal skulls.”
Last month, the enlightened bureaucrats of the European Union decided to offer billions in aid for developing nations to offer “sexual and reproductive health services”— that’s Orwellian-speak for killing babies in the womb via abortion.
Such aid forces nations such as Uganda that celebrate pregnancy, motherhood, and family life, to choose between foreign aid and betraying their core values as a society.
Maternal mortality is an ongoing concern in nations such as Uganda. But Western nations, blinded by pro-abortion ideology, fail to acknowledge that a majority of these deaths will not be prevented by greater access to abortion.
“… The majority of these deaths are attributed to problems like sepsis, hemorrhage, and indirect causes like malaria and HIV/AIDS. Getting the women to hospital in the first place is the real problem…If only more ambulances and more rural health centers were available, lives could be saved…
She revealed that a group of 75 students created and signed a document calling for a Pro-Life Uganda. The students shared that abortion is not the answer, and pointed to examples from Rwanda where, after legalization of the procedure, deaths from abortion increased relative to other causes of maternal death.
Sadly, the Biden Administration ignored the wisdom of Uganda’s pro-life students. Instead, they are increasing their efforts to expand access to abortion across the globe.
The Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues (PNCI) is a non-partisan global outreach that works to identify, unite, and strategize with pro-life groups, lawmakers, and religious leaders to advance respect for life in law and policy.
Marie Smith is the Director of PNCI and writes:
“Vice President Kamala Harris was one of the opening speakers at UN Women’s Generation Equality Forum taking place in Paris and virtually. She called for women around the world to have access to reproductive healthcare…Translation: The Biden Administration is using its influence in international venues to expand access to abortion around the world.”
Money is pouring in to advance abortion and the new sexual revolution of the Biden Administration and other Western elites. It was announced that Generation Equality Forum generated over 40 billion dollars in new funding commitments for these purposes.
Melinda Gates and the Gates Foundation have already committed $2.1 billion to the effort, half of which will promote the development of abortion services and sexual immorality.
Marie Smith responds, “It is tragic that the Generation Equality Forum seeks the destruction of members of the next generation in the guise of obtaining a distorted version of equality for themselves.”
Equally tragic, this deceptive promotion of “reproductive healthcare” in developing nations is led by the administration of a Catholic politician and weekly communicant, Joseph Biden.
“Whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. … Anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself” (1 Corinthians 11: 27, 29).
