Pelosi rips ‘No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act’

Catholic World News - February 14, 2011

Affirming the link between contraception, homosexual activity, and legalized abortion-- all of which she supports-- Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the Catholic who serves as House Minority Leader, blasted the proposed No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, calling it part of “the most comprehensive and radical assault on women’s health in our lifetime.”

Supporters of the act, she said, are “in a different philosophical place on…all engagements that result in a child. So that’s why homosexuality, that’s why birth control, all these things that are not consistent with their beliefs that are all about procreation.”

    If the supporters of "women's health" want to kill unborn babies, let them raise money the same way we raise it to help both women and their unborn children. Why do they insist that we do what we know to be immoral? I tell you, we are not struggling against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities. Pray.

    The question I have given to the elected leaders in my state who support abortion: "Why do not support the rights of unborn women?"

    The answer to your question, sparch, is that Archbishop Niederauer says he has talked to her. The answer to your implicit question, when will he DO something about it (such as, e.g., tell his priests not to give her Communion) is, three days after hell freezes over.

    When will her bishop call her on the scandal she causes in the church. I find her politics most offesive on almost every perspective.
