Refuses to say if she, as a Catholic, agrees with the Pope on abortion
Posted BY: Steve Watson
In comments to reporters Thursday, Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn violent attacks on pregnancy centres by leftist pro-abortion vandals currently being investigated by the FBI.
Pelosi was asked to comment on the attacks by a reporter who noted that there are concerns that Democrats’ failure to condemn the actions is making the situation worse.
Instead of taking the opportunity to condemn the violence, Pelosi said she supports legalised abortion, declaring “A woman has a right to choose, to live up to her responsibility,” adding “It’s up to her doctor, her family, her husband, her significant other, and her God. This talk of — politicizing all of this is something uniquely American and not right.”
Pelosi then stated that other “Catholic countries” including Ireland, Mexico, and Italy have expanded abortion access, proclaiming “I’m a very Catholic person and I believe in every woman’s right to make her own decisions. Any other questions on another subject because I’m not going to be talking about that?”
Pelosi also refused to answer a separate question on whether she, as a Catholic, agrees with the Pope that abortion is murder:
In the wake of the Supreme Court leaking an intention to overturn Roe vs Wade, pregnancy centres and pro-life organisations, as well as churches across the country have been subject to vandalism and even arson in some cases.

The FBI issued a statement noting that it is “investigating a series of attacks and threats targeting pregnancy resource centers and faith-based organizations across the country.”
The statement adds “The FBI takes all threats seriously and we continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners and will remain vigilant to protect our communities.”
Responsibility for some of the attacks has been claimed by militant abortion group ‘Jane’s Revenge’ (named after Jane Roe), according to reports. Yet there appear to be several more pro-abortion groups committing acts of violence.
The group has allegedly issued a communique stating “We promised to take increasingly drastic measures against oppressive infrastructures,” the group said. “Rest assured that we will, and those measures may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti.”
It continues, “it’s open season, and we know where your operations are,” adding “The infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive… We will never stop, back down, slow down, or retreat. We did not want this; but it is upon us, and so we must deal with it proportionally.”
Responding to the threat, Texas Senator Ted Cruz asserted that it constitutes “terrorist conduct,” adding “They’re threatening to attack, to burn, to murder people.”
Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse also issued a statement calling for Joe Biden to “personally and forcefully denounce the left’s intimidation campaign and make it absolutely clear that there is no place in America for political violence.”
“The Attorney General needs to enforce the law before someone gets killed,” Sasse further urged, adding “The Supreme Court must be allowed to do its job and pregnancy care centers must be allowed to operate without fear of threats, firebombs, or vandalism.”
As we have repeatedly highlighted, Joe Biden has not denounced the attempted assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his own home, and Democrats have refused to condemn the illegal gatherings by pro-abortion extremists there, and have even encouraged them.
