Monster Nancy Pelosi used her Catholic faith yesterday to defend late term abortions as “sacred ground.”
“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this.”
Via The Weekly Standard:
Today the Catholic Association condemned Pelosi’s disgusting talk of sacred late-term abortions.
The Christian Post reported:
The Catholic Association quickly condemned House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.), opposition to a House bill that would place a federal ban on late-term abortions after 20 weeks gestation, following comments she made in support of abortion during her weekly news briefing with members of the press on Thursday…
After chastising McCormack for asking a question about the House bill, Pelosi said her colleagues who seek to limit late-term abortions are “reprehensible” for “disrespecting the judgment a woman makes about her reproductive health.”
The minority leader added that she is a “practicing and respectful Catholic” but that abortion, in her opinion, is “sacred ground” and it “shouldn’t have anything to do with politics.”
Pelosi falsely accused the bill of banning all abortions in the U.S., including first trimester abortions. “It would make it a federal law that there would be no abortion in our country,” she said. Likewise, she avoided answering the reporter’s question about the “moral difference between 26 weeks elective abortion and the killing of that same infant born alive.”
Immediately following Pelosi’s remarks on abortion, Maureen Ferguson, senior policy advisor for The Catholic Association, issued a response that was shared with The Christian Post.
“After witnessing firsthand the atrocious human rights abuses taking place inside America’s late-term abortion clinics, it is amazing that this did not touch Nancy Pelosi’s heart. What we learned from the Gosnell trial, and what we understand is going on inside other clinics, is not only human rights abuse, but it also puts women in harm’s way.”
Ferguson continues, “The only difference between the Gosnell ‘after-birth’ abortions and legal late-term abortions is the location of the baby at the time of death. And contrary to Pelosi’s extreme claim that the Franks’ bill is ‘disrespectful’ to women, the majority of women are opposed to late-term abortions, according to a recent Gallup poll.”
