In my many years of following the Pro-life issue, I have seen many and all pro-abortion politicians squirm, weasel, deflect, hide behind euphemisms and try to confuse the issue when trying to explain why they support killing babies inutero. This morning, on Meet the Press, I heard House Speaker Nancy Pelosi give the most disgraceful and dark answer that I have ever heard in my life.
Tom Brokaw: …"I if [Obama] were to come to you and say ‘help me out here, Madam Speaker, when does life begin,’ what would you tell him?
Nancy Pelosi: "I would say that as an ardent practicing Catholic this is an issue that I have studied for a long time, and what I know is over the centuries the doctors of the Church have not been able to make that definition. And St. Augustine said three months. We don’t know. The point is it that it shouldn’t have an impact on a woman’s right to chose."
Pelosi was exploiting a Saint of the Catholic Church to defend her political expedient view allowing babies to be burned alive and dismembered to death in the womb. I can not say anything else but she is an evil woman who has no fear of her God. I do not use the term evil lightly or often. There is no other explanation for this.
Here is Pelosi's e-mail for anyone who wants to set her straight about what St. Augustine would think: firstname.lastname@example.org
Postnote 8/25: The Catholic League today issued a press release on this topic saying the have sent Nancy Pelosi the book, Catholicism for Dummies. She should really read it before she opens her mouth on Catholicism again.
