House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisted that she is a “devout Catholic” Thursday while defending Democrats’ plan to force taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies in abortions.
During a press conference with the Democrat leader, EWTN Nightly News correspondent Erik Rosales asked Pelosi why House Democrats have refused to allow a vote on a bill to make the Hyde Amendment a permanent law. The longstanding amendment prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs.
When Rosales asked why Democrats have blocked the bill 37 times this summer, Pelosi responded by claiming taxpayer-funded abortions are “an issue of health of many women in America,” Fox News reports. LifeNews reported that the number just increased to 38.
Then, Pelosi invoked her Catholic faith to defend her radical views.
“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 that may not be what we should – and it’s not up to me to dictate that that’s what other people should do, and it’s an issue of fairness and justice for poorer women in our country.”
