Did Nancy Pelosi Jut Crap On Her Own Family To Score Political Points?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to a high-ranking Catholic review of an abortion rights bill by pronouncing that she came from a "pro-life" family but has different views.

“I’m Catholic. I come from a pro-life family — not active in that regard. Different in their view of a woman's right to choose than I am,” Pelosi said in a press conference Thursday.

“In my right to choose, I had five children in six years and one week,” Pelosi added.

Pelosi was responding to a question about the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the archbishop of San Francisco, which cover Pelosi’s district, criticizing the Women’s Health Protection Act that the House is set to consider on Friday, which would basically codify into law abortion rights ensured by the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling.

The archbishop called the bill “nothing short of child sacrifice” and called on Catholics to fast and pray in response to the bill coming for a vote.

“It's none of our business how other people choose the size and timing of their families,” Pelosi said. “The archbishop of the city, that area of San Francisco, and I have a disagreement about who should decide this. I believe that God has given us free will to honor our responsibilities.”

At the beginning of the year, Pelosi refused to answer whether she thought "an unborn baby at 15 weeks is a human being" and rather stated that she is a mother and a "big supporter of Roe v. Wade."

The Women’s Health Protection Act would prevent states from executing many sorts of requirements or restrictions that abortion supporters claim violate reproductive rights.

Pelosi chose to bring up the bill for a vote in response to a restrictive Texas abortion law the Supreme Court refused to block from going into effect last month. The Texas bill bans abortion procedures if medical workers have "detected a fetal heartbeat for the unborn child," but it provides exemptions related to medical emergencies. It also allows individuals to file civil lawsuits against anyone who provides abortions or "aids or abets" abortions after a heartbeat is detected.

The House will vote on the abortion legislation on Friday. Pelosi previewed the vote at her briefing, noting that “this is a very exciting day for some of us in the Congress.”

“Every woman everywhere has a constitutional right to basic reproductive health, yet for years that has been questioned by some,” she said.

Pelosi presented the bill for a vote following Texas’ pro-life “heartbeat” bill going into effect Sept. 1. The law restricted most abortions following the detection of a fetal heartbeat, which can occur as early as six weeks into pregnancy. It is enforced through private civil lawsuits.
