Pope John Paul II rebuked Peters, US Bishops & Francis: "The Excommunication... includes those Accomplices [to]... Abortion"

Pope John Paul II rebuked Ed Peters' claim that abortion accomplice Andrew Cuomo can't be excommunicated in Evangelium Vitae, 62:

"The excommunication affects all those who commit this crime... and thus includes those accomplices without whose help the crime would not have been committed... abortion is a most serious and dangerous crime... excommunication is to... foster genuine conversion and repentance."
(The reproach of Christ, Catholic theologian  Ronald Conte Jr., "Contra Ed Peters on Excommunication for Abortion," September 9, 2015)

In fact, Pope John Paul II rebuked not only Peters, but Cardinal Timothy Dolan and all the United States bishops except for Bishop René Gracida and, it appears possibly, about five other US bishops.

Moreover, he rebuked Pope Francis who lauded as "a great Italian" abortionist Emma Bonino who was "directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of approximately six million Italian babies."(LifeSiteNews, "Notorious abortionist lauded by Pope Francis to speak at church in Italy," July 19, 2017)

Look at what the bishops and Francis do, not to the lip service they give to protecting the unborn babies. And remember what Jesus said about doing:

"Then he will answer, 'In truth I tell you, in so far as you neglected to do this to the least of these, you neglected to do it to me.'"

"'And they will go away to eternal punishment, and the upright to eternal life.'"

Francis, the bishops, everyone reading this and I should tremble in our boots as we read Our Lord's words. Joseph and Mary pray to Jesus that we receive the grace to do what He asks.

Note: Some argue that John Paul II was talking about Latae sententiae excommunication (sentences already passed); if this is the case then the bishops need to tell the accomplices they are already excommunicated and must repent before going to Communion.

In fact, Bishop Thomas Daly is doing something similar. He is denying Communion until the accomplices repent.

Also, if this is the case then the current canon law appears to have some deep problems.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Apples and oranges.

JPII was talking about the latae sententiae excommunication of those closely involved in an abortion.

Peters has been writing about excommunication imposed by a bishop.

The 1983 Code makes such an excommunication impossible in almost any case. Peters is not to blame.
Nonsense 'Fr.' VF.

Of course nobody can just "impose excommunication."

Excommunication occurs of the sinner's own will, regardless of any statement.

A statement form the Bishop is only official authoritative recognition.

What is to be 'imposed' are the natural disciplines that result from the excommunication - such as denial of the sacraments (other than of course Reconciliation on Cuomo's part)!

But what you and the Doc are trying to do is muddy the waters so that you can excuse infanticide by appeals to gnats to try and excuse Dolan from having to do his job and confront Cuomo - which would naturally make it evident to all that Cuomo is excommunicated. After which Dolan will have to deny him Holy COmmunion and then horror of horrors, might not be able to attend any of the upper echelon liberal dinner parties, no matter how much he want's to be so Jesus-like as to "dine with sinners" as they like to say.

Just as they misinterpret scripture and Christ's actions for their convenience, so too will they distort canon law. As you are doing now.

People like you are to blame.

@ Fr. VF: "The 1983 Code makes excommunication impossible".

Of course it does.

Add this to the mountain of evidence. Archbishop Lefebvre was right. An Athanasius of our day.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
