Pelosi Says ‘As A Devout Catholic’ Having Five Kids Was Great For Her, But ‘Poor Women’ Need Taxpayer-Funded Abortions

http://dailycaller.com/

  • Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that though she was “blessed” to have five children “as a devout Catholic,” “poor women” need taxpayer-funded abortion. 
  • “As a devout Catholic and mother of five and six years, I feel that God bless my husband and me with our beautiful family, five children in six years almost to the day,” Pelosi said.
  • She added: “But it’s not up to me to dictate that that’s what other people should and it is an issue of fairness and justice for poor women in our country.” 

Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that though she was “blessed” to have five children “as a devout Catholic,” “poor women” need taxpayer-funded abortions.

The California Democrat spoke on Capitol Hill where she falsely said that Democrats have not blocked Republican attempts to ban taxpayer funding of abortions before describing taxpayer-funded abortion as “an issue of health, as an issue of fairness.”

“It’s an issue of health of many women in America, especially those in lower-income situations, and different states, and it is something that has been a priority for many of us a long time,” Pelosi said.

The House Speaker then echoed a popular media description of President Joe Biden’s faith.

“As a devout Catholic and mother of five and six years, I feel that God blessed my husband and me with our beautiful family, five children in six years almost to the day,” she said. “But it’s not up to me to dictate that that’s what other people should and it is an issue of fairness and justice for poor women in our country.”

Pelosi did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

WATCH: 

Pelosi’s archbishop, San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, told the DCNF in May that he has had “conversations” with her about abstaining from receiving Holy Communion at mass as a pro-abortion Catholic.

“Because we are dealing with public figures and public examples of cooperation in moral evil, this correction can also take the public form of exclusion from the reception of Holy Communion,” Cordileone wrote in his document, Before I Formed You In The Womb, I Knew You. “When other avenues are exhausted, the only recourse a pastor has left is the public medicine of temporary exclusion from the Lord’s Table. This is a bitter medicine, but the gravity of the evil of abortion can sometimes warrant it.”

“I have had such conversations with Speaker Pelosi, she knows that I stand by Church teaching, and I know she’s respectful enough not to do anything so provocative,” the archbishop said in May.

“In the case of President Biden or any other prominent Catholic, I think what I would do is if I knew that they were coming into the area here and planned to attend mass, I would try to have those conversations as well ahead of time,” he added.

  1. The baby-killing Parasite Pelosi is actually squawking the sentiments of another known baby-killer, the (thankfully) ded Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger whose scheme to annihilate all non-white unborn babies is carried out by the hideous left and their chum the Parasite Pelosi woman. No person who advocates, supports, and urges the killing of the unborn should be lording over live people.

  2. Crazy Nancy is the right hand of planned parenthood. Planned parenthood takes in enormous amounts of money from taxpayers as it is now and hands it over to the demokrats. Crazy nancy just wants to keep the money flowing to her thru’ planned parenthood gobbling taxpayer money. Killing unborn babies is not health care, nor is it justice. If she is concerned with justice she would pass a bill repealing roe vs wade. Save the babies, or quit making them. Ask your children how they feel about the possibility that they could have been killed before they were born? As for the health part, I think men should be able to go to PP and have a free vasectomy, that would be part of planning parenthood, don’t you think? How about having men and women be sterilized to make sure they can’t make babies? Sound like a good idea? Add that to your healthcare plans. Just don’t make me pay for their bad behaviors.
