The following comes from an October 20 LifeSite News article by Ben Johnson:
House Minority Leader Pelosi held up Cecile Richards as a role model during a question-and-answer session with the Texas Tribune, a “progressive” publication in the conservative state.
Pelosi said Texas had not yet contributed in a positive way to the nation’s commonweal by – for instance – electing more Democrats to Congress. However, Pelosi said some figures from the state deserved praise.
“We all want to be Ann Richards,” she said, referring to the one-term Democratic governor (1991-5).
Ann Richards, the last Democratic governor of Texas, got her start aiding the political career of Sarah Weddington, the lead attorney supporting abortion in the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case.
“Speaking of Ann Richards, aren’t we all proud of Cecile Richards?” Pelosi, who describes herself as “an ardent, practicing Catholic”, asked those present.
Cecile Richards, the embattled president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, is Ann Richards’ daughter.
Pelosi made her comment as Planned Parenthood remains under multiple Congressional investigations for allegedly altering their abortion technique to maximize the number of organs harvested for biomedical researchers, a service for which some Planned Parenthood affiliates receive $60 per body part.
It also came just two days before Texas decided to remove Planned Parenthood from the state Medicaid program – a move Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says the rest of the country should follow.
Pelosi, like many other fraudulent, high-profile “Catholic” politicians– should never have been a cheap political toy, loaded with money, fame, false religious zeal, and quasi-religious sympathy for the underprivileged– for the Catholic Church to play a game with! They should have EXOMMUNICATED her years ago, and that’s that!
Where is her bishop’s reply?
It is highly important, for a Nation to uphold as their Role Models, the ideals of MATURE men and women of GOOD CHARACTER, RESPONSIBILITY, RELIGIOUS FAITH IN GOD, and GOOD MORALS, for all in the country to aspire to! A Nation should DESPISE and RIDICULE all those in the gutter, immaturely proclaiming the false glories of all evil, sin, rebellion, vices, and irresponsibility! A Nation cannot be properly built, and succeed– on an immature, juvenile delinquent- kind of foundation, of sin, rebellion against God, filth, and ignorance!
The more I read about this woman, the more I worry, what the H/E/L/L are those who keep re reelecting her thinking?
The Minority Leader keeps getting elected with 70 & 80%+ pluralities. The voters in her district are thinking she represents what they believe to be best for America. She represents San Francisco.
Please note, as a 4th generation San Franciscan…..Ms. Pelosi in NO WAY represents me ! She is not from the City, she is from Baltimore, where perhaps she would be much happier!!
This woman is just as scary as she is lost in space. She received a tremendous boost when Archbishop Niederauer gave her glowing accolades, and unfortunately no Catholic prelates have contradicted them. She is out of touch with reality, and is a disgrace not only to the Catholic Church, but also to America. Her followers, and they are minion, hopefully will be booted from power and authority when the elections take place next year. May God help us, and Our Lady preserve us from more of these immoral monsters.
I know for a fact that AB Niederauer spoke to her at least twice in private regarding her stance on abortion!!
Pray for her, she needs it big time!!! If Dr. Nathanson can have a conversion, as an avid abortionist, so can Pelosi have a complete conversion!
Pelosi gives Non Catholics and Catholics a False image of what real Catholics believe.
Our Catholic bishops are weak and ineffectual. They have no interest in confronting evil as did the early Christians. If these same men had lived at the beginning of Christianity, the Faith would have never spread. The early Church leaders confronted evil men to proclaim the truth, even the Roman Emperor, even important heretics. Between Pelosi and Jerry Brown, and all the evil they are permitted to achieve, unopposed by Church leaders, the faithful have no shepherds upon whom to rely.
Where is her bishop’s reply?
Responding to statements made by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi–who would not say at her press briefing last week if a 20-week-old unborn child is a “human being”–Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco said that it is a “scientific fact that human life begins at conception” and that “no Catholic can dissent in good conscience” from Church teaching on the sanctity of life.
That woman should be excommunicated. How can Pelosi have the gall to call herself a Catholic.
Planned Parenthood should be de-funded, de-funked, disabled and destroyed.
EXTREME SHAME! Those who profess to be Catholic and have the platform to hold up these views to the world will have way more to answer for than ordinary folks when comes judgement day.
She’s the one who stated that she was an “ardent Catholic.” Maybe she started her own church.
This women is spiritually blind…… serving the father of lies himself.
The bishops do not care. They embrace liberalism and all that is evil and untrue. This is a harsh statement to make, but it is true. All the ultra liberals are gaining ground in the Church and in society, while those who are traditional are mocked, scorned, and treated like lepers. We can thank V2 for this mess, as all the demonic worms came out into the open to devour and destroy the one true Church.
How many dead babies will it take to satisfy Nancy Pelosi’s blood lust?
