Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claims to have a deep Catholic faith, but it’s perplexing, given her radical stance on the abortion issue.
During a recent podcast called You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton, the House speaker admitted that pro-life voters cause her “grief” because they put the pro-life issue above all other issues, Live Action reported.
“Gives me great grief”
Pelosi expressed her seeming disgust that pro-life voters are always willing to put fighting abortion above everything else facing America.
“[Y]ou take the abortion issue — and many of these people are very good people; that’s just their point of view,” Pelosi said. “But they were willing to sell the whole democracy down the river for that one issue.”
She went on to say that it “gives me great grief as a Catholic” that pro-lifers prioritize their cause. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops calls ending abortion a “preeminent priority” above other important issues of poverty and hunger.
As noted by the Conference, the issue takes such priority because “it takes place within the sanctuary of the family, and because of the number of lives destroyed.”
Some 62 million innocent lives have been taken since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the landmark Roe v. Wade case in 1973, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to Pelosi that millions of Americans are quite concerned about the continued loss of life as Democrats aggressively push for widened access to abortion throughout the country.
Though there are a number of Republican members of Congress and state-level GOP politicians actively working to enact laws that will reduce or eliminate abortion.
However, now that President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have majority control in Congress, the continued fight to protect unborn lives will face unprecedented obstacles.
A statement released by the new administration less than 48 hours after taking over the White House made it clear that Biden and his Democratic allies will work to “codify” Roe v. Wade, which would cause serious problems for pro-life politicians in the future.
“The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to codifying Roe v. Wade and appointing judges that respect foundational precedents like Roe,” a White House statement read, using Democratic buzzwords like “reproductive healthcare” instead of accurately calling it the “mass killing of unborn babies.”
A number of red states made huge progress in the fight to reduce or eliminate various stages of abortion under former President Donald Trump’s time in the White House, but with radicals like Pelosi and her allies in Congress, the future for protecting the sanctity of life looks especially grim.
