Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas, called President Joe Biden’s pro-abortion actions a “sad day for the nation” and for Catholics.

Naumann, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, made his comments on Thursday during an interview on EWTN.

Asked what he would say to Biden, Naumann replied: “I would say, ‘Wake up. Think about what you’re really doing here.’ I mean, his soul is in jeopardy, I believe.

“You know, when they use euphemisms, when you’re violating fundamental human rights you use euphemisms, and so you say ‘this is healthcare for the poor.’

“What other healthcare procedure does two people go in, one comes out dead and the other one scarred emotionally, spiritually, and sometimes even physically?”

And he added: “It’s really tragic that anyone would do this, but particularly one who professes to be Catholic. I think it’s very contrary to what he campaigned on as being a unifying president. I mean, he’s obviously in debt to pro-abortion forces within his party and he’s just conforming to them.

“I wish he was as orthodox in his Catholic faith as he is in doing what Planned Parenthood instructs him to do.”

Naumann’s remarks came as Biden rescinded the Mexico City policy, which had stopped U.S. foreign-aid money from funding groups that provide or promote abortion in other nations.
