Pope Francis Faces Tests on Abortion, Gay Rights
ROME—Bishops in the U.S. and Germany are poised to challenge Pope Francis, from the right and left respectively, on abortion and gay rights, in tests that could shape the 84-year-old’s legacy. German Catholic bishops and lay leaders are scheduled to vote this week on a proposal for blessing same-sex couples despite a Vatican ban on the practice. In November, U.S. bishops are expected to vote on whether Catholic politicians who support abortion rights, such as President Biden, should be denied Communion, despite a warning from the Vatican that such a statement could be divisive.
