Democrat Rep. Rose DeLauro is being brutally dragged on Twitter after she claimed that being pro-abortion is consistent with her Catholic faith.
Joe Biden recently said that he is “not big on abortion” due to his Catholic faith.
“I am a Catholic—baptized, raised, and confirmed,” DeLauro tweeted. “The fundamental tenets of my faith compel me to defend a women’s right to access abortion. I am proudly part of the faithful large majority of US Catholics who support legal protections for abortion access.”
