Pelosi: As a Catholic, Abortion is “Sacred Ground to Me”

A bill passed a congressional committee that would make abortions after 20 weeks illegal unless the doctor decided that not having one would endanger the mother’s health or life. Not surprisingly, Nancy Pelosi is opposed to the bill, because it would infringe on mothers’ “reproductive rights.” And she of all people knows best about the “sanctity” of human life abortion, because she’s Catholic. Or so she says.

Regarding her opposition to the bill, a reporter with the Weekly Standard asked her what the moral difference is between Kermit Gosnell, who murdered born-alive babies, and an abortionist who performs “legal” abortions on babies as late as 28 weeks into a pregnancy just seconds before they’re born. She did not want to answer the question:

 “You're probably enjoying that question a lot, I can see you savoring it. Let me just tell you this… Let me just tell you this. What was done in Philadelphia was reprehensible and everybody condemned it. For them to decide to disrespect a judgment a woman makes about her reproductive health is reprehensible. Next question.”

The reporter pressed her to answer the question about what difference it makes. Why would she condemn Gosnell but be opposed to a bill that would outlaw Gosnells and many others like him? Pelosi responded:

 “This is not the issue. They are saying that there's no abortion. It would make it a federal law that there would be no abortion in our country. You're taking the extreme case. You're taking the extreme case. And what I'm saying to you what happened in Philadelphia was reprehensible. And I do not think you – I'm not going to have this conversation with you because you obviously have an agenda. You're not interested in having an answer… I've responded to you to the extent that I'm going to respond to you. Because I want to tell you something. As the mother of five children, my oldest child was 6 years old the day I brought my 5th child home from the hospital, as a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this. I don't think it should have anything to do with politics. And that's where you're taking it and I'm not going there.”

 The bill doesn’t outlaw abortion like she said it did. It would ban late term abortions. Abortions after 20 weeks. That accounts for only 1.5% of abortions in the U.S. About 18,000 a year. She’d still get to keep the rest of the 98.5% of abortions that happen before 20 weeks. Isn’t that enough?

Her Catholic comment was baffling. I thought Catholics were traditionally opposed to abortion. And contraception. And she claims to be a “practicing and respectful” Catholic who views abortion as “sacred ground.” Sick.

    "Nutty Nancy" professes to be a Catholic, but not a Bible believing Catholic; just as Obummer professes not to be a Muslim or follower of Islam

    "I don't think it should have anything to do with politics. And that's where you're taking it and I'm not going there.”

    "Nutty Nancy" graduated from the institute of Notre Dame, a Catholic all-girls high school in Baltimore where I'm sure they taught her that abortions were fine with the school administration and Catholic church. Abortion (murder) is a moral issue that has been approved by the courts as legal. Politics has nothing to do with it. Get Congress to override the US Supreme Court.

    Let the truth be known, even the Democrats despise her politics. She's asked for a bigger jet (according to her size does not matter) and she has blamed the Republicans for the financial mess we're in.

    Like all good liberal Democrats, she has never accepted responsibility for anything that has gone wrong with government policy and management.....she only passed blame and gas.

    Nancy works and lives for Nancy and I can find no good in the person....especially when she is really a religious hypocrite.

    • Patriot

      It will be a happy day, when she has a big grabber and goes to meet her final judgement. What a glorious day that will be. May she rot in hell!

      • http://cia.americanspecialops.com/air-branch/ NASA

        Great minds think alike.

        I came up with the same idea when I was posting the comment. I almost added it, but I figured it was obvious to most that her day at the judgement seat will settle the score.

  • Robalou01

    She really belongs in a mental ward...Oh wait she's in congress already

  • wapiti,co

    What a liberturd. She does not display any signs of being a christian. Maybe she has forgotten that catholics are christian. What does she pray to Mary for- the blessing of baby murdering. She needs to stay in her shithole in califorication with the other perverts

    • Patriot

      Nancy wouldn't know a Christian if she was hit up side the head with one. After all, she looks at the Queer,Camel Jockey Muslim in the oval office and sees a devote Christian Man.

  • Screeminmeeme

    As an infanticidal nation, we have aborted the equivalent of every man, woman, and child living in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming, and Michigan.

    55 million infants dead.

    Thanks Nancy. Your support of abortion makes you complicit in genocide and it tops the list of despicable things you've done in the name of political expediency.

    • Aimliz

      I have never thought of the numbers in that way before. That really puts in in perspective. So very sad.

  • Americans Wake Up

    Pelosi is whacked out MoTard. She says she is a devout catholic and then turns around and says that she supports the murder of innocent lies. She needs to go away forever!!!

  • Patriot

    Oh, and this bi&ch doesn't have an agenda, right! Someone should have infringed on her mother's reproductive rights and ordered a forced abortion. Society would have been well served!

  • Aimliz

    Every time I hear the statement that she is a "Catholic", it makes my stomach churn. She has a selective set of her own beliefs, she has told herself, are Catholic. Abortion is an action that is NO way, condoned by the Catholic Church. hey Nancy! Remember the 5th commandment of God? Thou shalt not kill? Pretty straight forward. You should have learned that when you were a toddler.

    • fiftysevenchevy

      good for you, you said it right!

    She grew up in Baltimore's D'Alasandro family of machine politicians. She's a CINO like Gov. Martin Owe Malley. As I understood it, the local Catholic Bishop of the Archdiocese has banned Owe Malley from receiving Communion for his Abortion Support.

    • fiftysevenchevy

      your right on

  • foxxybey

    Pelosi is a lying witch from the left coast who's husband and she rob the people every day, no repentance, just more lie's from her on her broom stick that always seems to be in flight. Needs to go along with her followers as they hate America and have proven it day in and day out.

    • OzzWorx

      The Wicked B!tch of the Left!

  • Barnlady

    I read that several times and she makes NO sense whatsoever.. She is a Senator?? How did she get elected??? "Lets pass Obamacare then we can read it"?? She is an idiot..... Why isn't the Catholic Church excommunicating her???

    • fiftysevenchevy

      the Catholic church did excommunicate her, so when she goes before God, she is on her own. And she was not elected, she was just put in her job. Thats the way these democrats do things.

    • OzzWorx

      Her constituency contains the Castro District.

    • KJ

      Pelosi is a House legislator from an odd district in San Francisco where they love people like her.

      • Barnlady

        Opps, thought she was a Senator.. San Francisco, I guess that explains it...

    • Screeminmeeme

      She was elected by like-minded morons.

      The church tolerates her pretension of being a ''devoted'' catholic because she pays them off. No other explanation.

  • fiftysevenchevy

    nancy pelosi--is sick, no "real " practicing catholic believes in abortion, all babies are precious, she is sick.

  • 7papa7

    If Pelosi is Catholic, why hasn't the Catholic church excommunicated her for preaching a doctrine that is the antithesis of what the Catholic church teaches and is adamant about? They should throw her and all other politicians out who outwardly defy the teachings of their church. If they can't believe in what the church teaches then they don't belong in it. I guess the church is no better than our congress, they won't throw out, impeach, those who defy our Constitution.

    • KJ

      Bureaucrats are all the same. They would sell their souls for a few pieces of silver. Pelosi has probably contributed financially to her parish. Need I write more?

      • 7papa7

        That was the point I was making. The Catholic church and many others do what is best for them, NOT what is right by God. A pastor I know said that the biggest problem in the church today is a lack of discipline. They allow anything to go as long as they put the proper amount of alms in the bucket. It is an abomination to God.

        • PhilESieve

          IAnything goes? Hmmm. I bet they would Luke to marry. What? No marriage? There goes that theory by simple minds.

    • Screeminmeeme

      Because she is paying them off with donations to the church. They get money...and for it, keep their mouths shut and help her maintain her pretense of being a ''devoted'' catholic.

      • 7papa7

        They aren't doing thing with those like biden who gave less that 1% to charity.

      • johnsnare

        As usual,Screeminmeeme. You nailed it beautfulyy.

    • johnsnare

      Show me the money.

      • 7papa7

        The Catholic church has been like this for centuries. If you look back in their history you could buy indulgences for just one example. God will eventually have His say and they won't like it very much.

        • PhilESieve

          Really? What about the Protestants' membership in the Masons and their unbiblical remarriage after divorce. The rest vote for globalists or change their faith to get along. The Church does not, because it supernaturally cannot (probably because Jesus founded it, as seen in Scripture, and the gates of He'll cannot prevail against it), despite how weak its leaders get at times.

        • 7papa7

          The problem is that the church, I am referring to the church that Jesus built, has gotten soft. They no longer put Christ as an absolute first. Because of that they have lost all moral authority. All "religions" have their problems when they chose to deviate from Biblical teaching. I was referring to Catholicism because of the article NOT to be picking on them. A pastor friend of mine puts the problem with the Christian church is the lack of discipline in it. They have moved very far to the left. One of the biggest detriments is the seeker friendly movement. It puts people above Christ and that flat doesn't cut it. People like Rick Warren has watered down the church.

        • PhilESieve

          Oh, OK. I'm not out to get Protestants, but get tired of the Church as the seat of Freemasonry via the Templars and other black legends. Non-Protestants love that lore, also. There may be no right or left in Catholicism, but, outside dogmas, which I believe to be as infallible as The Church teaches, the culture can be affected for the better or worse or lukewarm and the latter two situations can confuse people via the senses to where it doesn't influence them that Church teaching teaches against abortion, contraception, etc. They've lost interest or have become disgruntled. It's pandemic, at least in The West, where we're comfortable. It was being decided to be soft and user-friendlier behind the scenes before the '60s, but the gates were opened starting in the '60s and that's when the gates were open to possible Freemasons to fake their way into seminaries. Despite all that, the unpopular teaching on contraception, male-only priests, homosexuality and no marriage in the Latin rite (the latter one being changeable), anyway, has never been changed, which is how I came to believe in it.

        • PhilESieve

          It has weathered far worse and has been revived within and will again.

        • 7papa7

          ALL churches have their problems. Just read what Christ wrote to the seven churches in Revelation. The majority aren't in good standing with Him. I have been a Christian for over 30 years and have only found one church that teaches Scripture verse by verse in context. Most have their own agenda rather than God's agenda. The churches of today have lost their moral authority to tell others how to live. They don't even talk the talk anymore let alone walk the walk. It is because of this that our country has become morally bankrupt and lost all integrity etc. That includes both the Protestant and Catholic churches. They have put Christ on the back burner and when you do that you fail as a Christian church.

  • john4637

    I cannot believe that after all the years this woman has advanced programs which are against the teaching of the Church, the Bishop of he diocese has not banned her from receiving the Sacraments!!

    • Screeminmeeme

      Sort of tells you something, doesn't it, about the RCC, and about this Bishop? Do ya think maybe she's given buckets of cash to the church....which is often what hypocrites do because they think it will buy them salvation?

  • wkrebs

    If there is no God, Nancy will suffer no more than the last years of her life being spent much like the first 70+ years of her life- in a state of utter stupidity. If there is a God, who she says exists, then she will have a great deal to answer for, and what God will ask, she will answer.

    • Screeminmeeme

      The Bible ways that ultimately, EVERY knee will bow, and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

      Bowing can either be voluntary or compelled by force, but regardless, all will answer to their Creator who has dealt mercifully with a world of rebellious and ungrateful people like Pelosi. She has used her claim to be a believer whenever it was politically helpful and adroitly used her penchant for lying to advance Obama's policies.

      The Bible says this about Pelosi:

      Joh 8:42 Jesus said unto them (the Pharisees, who were hypocrites and not true believers) If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
      Joh 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
      Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and THE LUSTS OF YOUR FATHER YE WILL DO. He was a MURDERER from the beginning, and ABODE NOT IN THE TRUTH, because there is NO TRUTH in him. When he speaketh a lie, HE SPEAKETH OF HIS OWN: for HE IS A LIAR, AND THE FATHER OF IT.

      She really has no clue what she is in for.

  • mathis1689

    What the wicked witch of the west really means is that if she follows the teachings of her church then all the liberals in her district will vote her hypocritcal butt out of office and she can't stand the thought of actually losing her power. She likes being Queen Nancy too much to give it up.

  • KJ

    She may be a Catholic in name but most assuredly not in spirit. Good luck on your journey in the afterlife Ms. Pelosi. You'd better start praying that God has mercy on your decrepit soul.

  • foxxybey

    Every word out of her mouth is a lie, a witch won't give bitches credit for anything. She and her Islamic leader will spend a eternity in the lake of fire unless she calls on the name of her Savior, Jesus (Savior) Christ (Messiah) hope she can take the heat.

  • Steve Etheredge

    My opinion? Nancy Pelosi is a moron. everything out of her mouth a lie? probably, but everything out of her mouth idiotic? absolutely.

  • bobbylang

    Pelosi a "Catholic"???? Ha!, Ha!, HA!

    Well I guess she is in her own mind, if she says so, BUT she surely isn't a practicing Catholic, and also actively heading the most morally egregious assault on human life!

    If Hitler was a "Catholic" and (I think he was), would he be exonerated because tried to justify the "Holocaust", by claiming he followed an effort to destroy those who crucified Jesus?

    Is that a moral answer, and a validation for reception of Sacraments? The idea that its' perfectly acceptable to murder of millions of innocents??
    If that's morally acceptable, than so is the Devil!!!

    • PhilESieve

      Hitler was an occultist, as early as his teens, and funded by occultic globalists. Any Catholic faith he had was long gone by then. He wasn't pretending to be Catholic, as opposed to Sebellius, (Ted) Kennedy, Pelosi or Biden, who will need tons of grace to repent of their demonic acts.

    Oh come on and give the old gal a break. She is obviously a few slices of bread short of a sandwich and seriously lacking any common sense. She must not have got the memo about abortions not being consistant with beliefs and practices of a Catholic. I say this with the strongest conviction, pelosi, you are an evil idiot and that is what makes you dangerous. If there are ever any doubts, you open your mouth and confirm it on a regular basis. Sometimes dems say the strangest things that make no sense at all. A 3 yr old has more common sense.

    Nancy Pelosi is a hypocrite and should be ex-communicated from the Catholic Church. The same goes for Ted Kennedy, John Kerry and any other Catholic who votes to further the Democrat agenda of abortion. When are Catholics going to wake up and know they've been led like sheep by a false god?

      Why weren't the Kennedys excommunicated? I had a friend who, being out of town, was " excommunicated" for a week by her priest because she went to another church instead of her local parish. She was terrified that if she died during that week she would spend eternity in hell! If worshiping where you are is a mortal sin, why not adultery and murder?

  • metheoldsarge

    Nancy Pelosi's picture, along with Joe Biden, John Kerry and any other Catholic politician, should be in the Dictionary right next to the definition of the word “Hypocrite”. Perhaps the old bat is under the sad misunderstanding that all she has to do is go to confession every week so she can take communion. Maybe she thinks that, by confessing the sins she commits during the week, she gets absolution. As a Catholic who survived Catholic school I can say that she is sadly mistaken. It doesn't work that way. According to The Catechism, “No one who advocates, promotes or engages in the murder of infants in the womb is worthy of approaching The Altar.” Confessions and prayers count. At the end of the Confession, you must say an Act of Contrition prayer promising to avoid the occasion of sin. Most likely, like many kids, she was only taught to memorize all those prayers. Not all of us were fortunate enough to have a teaching nun that would take the time to explain the meaning of each prayer so we would understand what we were saying when reciting them. Many people today rattle them off without really thinking what they are actually praying about. On the Sunday before the 2009 Presidential Inauguration, Joe Biden took Communion at Holy Trinity, a parish that was once attended by JFK, to a standing ovation. Must be a lot of hypocrites attending that parish now. If the politicians are told they can't take communion, it wouldn't surprise me to find that the churches loose their tax exempt status. As for confession. If you are truly repentant of the sins you are confessing, that is one thing. To go to confession and then go right out and commit those sins over again, that confession doesn't amount to a hill of beans and you are not worthy to take Communion. If Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, John Kerry, and any other Catholic politician thinks they are going to Heaven, they better have their Heaven on Earth. Of the 24 Catholic Senators, fifteen are Democrat. In the House there are 161 Representatives that are Catholic. I am sure their constituents know who among them are pro-life and pro-choice. One day the old bat, and the rest of her fellow Catholic politicians, will have to stand before The Highest Court and face God and Jesus and answer for the sins they have committed. When that day comes, all the money and power they now enjoy, isn't going to help them if they haven't repented for the sins they are committing now.

  • Susan

    She truly needs to be excommunicated for the Catholic Church to have any credibility, whatsoever. So does Biden and you actually have Cardinal Dolen praising that evil SOB.

    The Catholic Church needs to clean out the Vatican of all the Homoheresy that Fr. Oko wrote about in his famous report....the Homosexual Marxist infiltration of the CC in the 30's and 40's that Bella Dodd wrote about (and she was Brietbarted)--explains how/why the Homomafia got control of policies/seminaries inside the CC to destroy it from within by raping the men and boys and blackmailing them.

    Abp. Fulton Sheen and JFK made Catholicism a major threat to the NWO.......so it had to be destroyed. The new Pope had better clean it out---the time is now! Freemasonry and Marxism was adamantly condemned prior to Vatican II and then it all came "tumbling down". With the Marxist infiltration, Truth became obsolete and "social" justice and girl "altar boys" became prevalent to blur sexual roles to rush in the embrace of homosexuality---making women and men interchangeable for the Marxist NWO. (They want to raise and shape all children so need the family unit destroyed).
