Pelosi Refuses To Say If An Unborn Baby At Fifteen Weeks Is A Human Being

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to say Thursday if an unborn baby at fifteen weeks is a human being.

“The Supreme Court this fall will review a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy,” CNS News reporter Julia Johnson asked the California Democrat during a Thursday press conference. “Is an unborn baby at 15 weeks a human being?”

“Let me just say that I am a big supporter of Roe v. Wade. I’m the mother of five children in six years, I think I have some standing on this issue as to respecting a woman’s right to choose,” Pelosi responded, before calling on another reporter.


“Is it a human being?” Johnson repeated, but Pelosi ignored the question and moved on to another reporter.

Johnson was referring to an upcoming Supreme Court case in which the court will hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. A decision on the case will likely come by June 2022, CNBC reported.

This will be the first major abortion case in which all three of former President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court justice appointees participate, including Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who gained a seat on the court after a contentious confirmation process in October.

The case deals with a 2018 Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks, a law challenged by the Center for Reproductive Rights, the law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, and the Mississippi Center for Justice on behalf of the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi — Jackson Women’s Health Organization. After the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the law in December 2019, the state of Mississippi asked the Supreme Court to take up the case.

An unborn baby is considered viable at 24 weeks, though medical intervention and a stay in the NICU are usually required this early. Babies born before 23 weeks have a survival rate of about 5% to 6%, and analysis by Charlotte Lozier Institute medical experts found that unborn babies can feel pain as early as 12 weeks.

  1. REPORTER: “Is an unborn baby at 15 weeks a human being?”
    From the moment of conception a woman is carrying an unborn baby. It sure as heck isn’t a bicycle or refrigerator or a bunny rabbit.
    It’s a baby, in other words a human being.
    Pelosi would cut off her right hand before ever admitting that a baby is a human being at the moment of conception and at fifteen weeks and after it is born. Nothing else.

  2. Pelosi is Pelosi….so what is “a Pelosi’? She was raised in a ‘Godfather’ like home, grew up and had an ‘arranged” marriage and say on ‘her site’ that her husband picks out her clothes…….Where ther is man, there is corruption and apparently she was educated by at least 2 of these mobsters. Her “leadershiiip qualities came in $$$$$$$bills. One should not expect this poor little rich girl to act decent or as a leadership. Rather than serve her Country and
    State, she serves the money power mongers……
    No one should expect an answer to a moral question from a woman that can’t even honor the tenets of her Church….During the GW Bush term she was denied communion by the Bishop in DC
