building a better bay area moving forward finding solutions. this is abc 7 news. the battle over abortion rights now coming at a personal cost to house speaker nancy pelosi the archbishop of san francisco banning pelosi from receiving holy communion in the archdiocese. good evening. thank you for joining us. i'm dan ashley abc 7 news reporter. tim johnson has been tracking this story since it broke today and is in the newsroom with more provocative decision yet. again. that's right speaker pelosi who represents san francisco has been very public about her catholic faith over the years in the past even describing herself as devout, but when it comes to her stance on abortion, this isn't the first time her views have clashed with the archbishops. in a statement released friday, san francisco archbishop
salvatore quarter leone boring house speaker nancy pelosi from receiving communion. thanks to her stance on abortion the archbishop writing pelosi must either renounce her support of abortion rights or not. refer to her catholicism in justifying them with her advocacy. for codifying the road decision and federal law. it's becoming more and more extreme a more and more aggressive speaking on a catholic podcast friday quarter. leone says, he reached out to pelosi to try and schedule a meeting to speak several times when that didn't happen. the archbishop says he thought long and hard about his decision. i've been debating this within my own conscience for many years actually a decision. he claims that has a basis in faith and not politics it's a sad moment. really. and i would just encourage them to see this in a bigger light. it's it's sad that this kind of action would have to be taken but not everyone sees it that way in san francisco.
we overwhelmingly overwhelmingly people here want to people to be able to choose to have an abortion state senator. scott weiner says pelosi is simply reflecting the views of the people. she's elected to represent and says, he doesn't think the archbishop's decision will have much of an effect on the speaker. knowing nancy pelosi. she probably is sort of brushed this off and it's just refocusing on doing the very hard work that she has on her plate, but he does worry that others could possibly follow suit blowing the lines. he says between church and state. i am concerned that this archbishop could set president. i believe there are bishop of denver i think has already come out supporting. now we did reach out to nancy pelosi's office directly for comment but have not heard back as of yet. i'm live in the newsroom tonight tim johns abc 7 news tim. thank you. a seven-year-old child has died

districts seemed to date spread throughout elementary middle and high schools. berkeley unified is home to nearly 10,000 students across 16 schools. we actually are seeing what we believe is transmission in our school. and this is what we heard from our local health officer at the city of berkeley on wednesday. she actually strongly recommended that we reinstate the masking mandate and we spoke with one ber teacher and parent who says she's behind the masked mandate hoping to finish out the year strong. i'm really grateful because there are two weeks left in the school year, and i love my students dearly and they love each other and i want to spend our last two weeks together. i don't want anybody in my class to miss out on our fun stuff and end of your milestones are also on the minds of school officials. so two are the 107 reported cases of covid last week. our goal is to keep everyone healthy and also, of our goal is to have all of those students attend those graduation ceremonies. they've really earned the right to do so the school district is
