Nancy Pelosi has made clear her contempt for the American poor.
It’s shocking how openly elitist the Democrats are in their thinking.
Nancy Pelosi said six horrific words that will come at a high personal cost.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that although she was “blessed” to have five children “as a devout Catholic,” “poor women” need taxpayer-funded abortions on Thursday.
Pelosi was trying to dishonestly claim that Democrats did not block a measure Republicans were trying to pass that would keep taxpayers from funding abortion. She then claimed that taxpayer-funded abortion is needed for “health” and “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.
Pelosi then claimed to be a devout member of the church despite promoting abortion which the Catholic Church considers murder.
“As a devout Catholic and mother of five in 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.”
Her Archbishop, San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, openly rebuked Pelosi for her comments.
Cordileone said in a statement criticizing Pelosi: “Let me repeat: no one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it.”
“It is people of faith who run pro-life crisis pregnancy clinics; they are the only ones who provide poor women life-giving alternatives to having their babies killed in their wombs. I cannot be prouder of my fellow Catholics who are so prominent in providing this vital service. To them I say: you are the ones worthy to call yourselves ‘devout Catholics!'” he added.
Cordileone also told the Daily Caller that he’s had “conversations” with her about abstaining from receiving Holy Communion because she is pushing pro-abortion policies.
“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.
