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 after being struck by a vehicle in fremont this afternoon. it happened on montrose avenue. just east of fremont boulevard the driver stopped after the collision and remained at the scene as police officers arrived the child who was taken to a trauma center was treated but sadly passed away at the

so we're in oakland. so the weather obviously is fantastic. the water in the morning is typically flat and it's really good to roll on. we have about a 12-mile stretch of water that we can row in all day. all that plus the facilities. you know, it's a home run. it was started by the rogers family. so, gary rogers years ago, he was trying for the olympic team in 1964 and he rowed with a couple of friends from cal and from stanford out here. so he thought, "hey, if i ever become successful and i'm able to afford it, i want to support people aspiring to the national team from the west coast." he started the club here, california rowing club, and now it's sort of grown to where we have legitimate national team athletes. we have olympians here and they train here, they work here, they've made a home for themselves here,
and we couldn't be happier. >> rowers and olympians, you have to think in like four-year quadrennials because it's not an olympics every single year. so that's the goal, is the 2024, winning gold there. so i'm going to do everything that i can and i have a great setup with california rowing club here. skip and mike, like, you know, they believe in me. i believe in them. they're going to get me to where i need to be. >> i joined this boathouse and this team in the summer of 2019. give me a place to train and then grow. and then since the olympics, it's been fantastic being here with the group. i was in the tokyo 2020, 2021 olympics and i was in the men's eight and we finished fourth. >> i think as a coach, this is sort of a group you dream about. they're all super bright, they're highly motivated, and they have a social conscience. so they're all really good people and they support each other. >> i love to race and this is a sport where we do a lot of training. there's not a ton of actually chance to go out and race. so it's like in soccer, you might play once a week
or twice a week, but with rowing we don't. so to now be in kind of our racing season and getting close to racing, it's a super excited. >> for me, i have to focus on different areas trying to get stronger, trying to get more fit. relearning different aspects of the stroke to try and make the boat go as fast as possible. it's six days a week, sometimes seven. we do two sessions per day monday, tuesday, thursday, friday and sunday, and then we have one session on wednesday and then we usually will get saturday kind of as a rest day. >> i think you have to put your ego on the shelf if you want to be successful in this sport. it's a team sport. it takes that type of special athlete where, you know, look, it's all for the good of the team and not so much an individual accolade. >> it's therapeutic. when you're out there and you're in a two-man boat or four-person boat or an eight-person boat, and the boat is just running, you can hear the water going off the boat and you're outside, you're in nature. it's euphoric, really, and you really try to appreciate th
