Nancy Pelosi to receive Planned Parenthood's top award

Catholic World News - February 03, 2014

US House minority leader Nancy Pelosi has been named to receive the Margaret Sanger Award from the Planned Parenthood Federation.

The Margaret Sanger Award, named from the notorious racist and eugenicist helped to establish Planned Parenthood, recognizes a public figure for “outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement.” Nancy Pelosi, who identifies herself as a practicing Catholic, has campaigned tirelessly for unrestricted legal abortion. The award is the top honor bestowed by Planned Parenthood.

“No one is more deserving of his honor than Leader Pelosi,” said Cecile Richards, the president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in announcing the award.

    She is another "Catholic" politician who operates under the rubric, "let your conscience be your guide." And also, if it feels right, do it.

    Will her bishops (California and Washington) come out from under their desks and speak up about this disgraceful situation as to a prominent self-proclaimed Catholic??

    A reward richly deserved!

    Not a surprise. This is a slap in the face of the Catholic Church. May God have mercy on her soul.

    It is time for her bishop to put the hammer down and tell her she is not to receive Holy Communion and also for the bishop here in Washington D.C. to do the same. This woman is not Catholic. She does all she can to restrict and make fun of the Church's doctrines.
