Catholic bishops in the US overwhelmingly voted in favor of drafting a “doctrinal document” that many hope will reprimand Catholic politicians, including [Biden]for receiving communion despite their support for the right to abortion.
The result of the vote – 168 in favor and 55 against – was announced on Friday towards the end of a three-day session of the American Catholic Bishops’ Conference, which was held virtually.
The bishops had cast their votes privately on Thursday after nearly three hours of passionate debate.
Proponents of the measure said Biden was firmly rebuked for his recent measures to protect and expand access to abortion, while opponents warned that such an action would portray the bishops as a partisan force at a time of bitter political divisions across the country.
