The following comes from a January 13 LifeSiteNews article by Ben Johnson:
After decades as a crusader against any restriction or regulation of abortion, Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi said yesterday, “I don’t believe in abortion on demand.”
The House Minority Leader, who regularly earns a zero percent rating from the National Right to Life Committee, told Roll Call on Tuesday that she is “with the program” of the Catholic Church when it comes to abortion.
“I don’t believe in abortion on demand, I don’t believe in abortion on demand,” she said, repeating herself, during a videotaped interview with Melinda Henneberger. “I don’t even like to use the word.”
However, NARAL Pro-Choice America slammed the former Speaker’s comments as “troubling,” “disappointing and ill-advised.”
She also proclaimed her Catholic faith during the interview in unusually strong terms, using the word “Catholic” four times in a matter of seconds. The San Francisco Democrat said she is “a Catholic – a devout, practicing Catholic” who comes from “a very Catholic family.”
“I’m with the program in terms of the Catholic Church,” she said.
But Pelosi had previously called abortion “sacred ground” and stated that the Catholic Church did not reject abortion until “like maybe 50 years or something like that.”
Of course, the Christian Church has rejected abortion since its founding.
