.. Late – Term Abortions are Sacred ?!?# ..

… House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was adamant that late-term abortions are “sacred” at her weekly press conference today.  The issue of abortion has re-emerged due to Rep. Trent Franks’ (R-Arizona) bill, which would ban the procedure after 20 weeks into a pregnancy.  The Weekly Standard was present at the conference, and noted that Pelosi wrongly claimed that Franks’ bill would ban all abortions.  In reality, it would bar the killing of babies during the last four months of a pregnancy, with exceptions for the life and health of the mother.  John McCormack, who reported on this development, noted that this is also the “point at which science indicates babies can feel pain and some babies can survive long-term if born.”

.. Yet Pelosi, a Catholic, feels that “this [late-term abortion] is sacred ground to me when we talk about this. I don’t think it should have anything to do with politics.”  Sadly, when you work on the Hill, everything is politics.  Additionally, when pressed about the moral difference between Gosnell’s actions and those of Leroy Carhart, who was caught in a Live Action investigative video agreeing to a legal abortion in Maryland at 28 weeks, fireworks ensued.

.. from the Weekly Standard ..

THE WEEKLY STANDARD: Madam Leader, you mentioned the bill that passed out of the House Judiciary   committee. Members    who  have proposed that bill have done that in the wake of this murder trial in   Philadelphia.

They argue that there really isn’t much of a moral difference between what someone like Dr. Gosnell did   to infants born at 23, 24, 25

weeks into pregnancy, and what can happen [legally] at a clinic down the   road in Maryland where a doctor says he’ll perform an   elective abortions 28 weeks into pregnancy. So the   question I have for you is what is the moral difference between what Dr. Gosnell did to a baby born   alive at 23 weeks and aborting her moments before birth?

PELOSI: You’re probably enjoying that question a lot, I can see you savoring it. [Laughter in press   corps] Let me just tell you this.

TWS: Could you answer the question?

PELOSI: Let me just tell you this. What was done in Philadelphia was reprehensible and everybody   condemned it. For them to decide to disrespect a judgment a woman makes about her reproductive health is   reprehensible. Next question.

TWS: So what’s the moral difference? I just asked a simple question. … What’s the moral difference then   between 26 weeks elective abortion and the killing of that same infant born alive. This is the issue   that they’re trying to–

PELOSI: This is not the issue. They are saying that there’s no abortion. It would make it a federal law   that there would be no abortion in our country. You’re taking the extreme case. You’re taking the   extreme case. And what I’m saying to you what happened in Philadelphia was reprehensible. And I do not   think you.

TWS: [Inaudible]

PELOSI: I’m not going to have this conversation with you because you obviously have an agenda. You’re   not interested in having an answer.

TWS: [Inaudible]

PELOSI: I’ve responded to you to the extent that I’m going to respond to you. Because I want to tell you   something. As the mother of five children, my oldest child was 6 years old the day I brought my 5th   child home from the hospital, as a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when   we talk about this. I don’t think it should have anything to do with politics. And that’s where you’re   taking it and I’m not going there.

TWS [after tape ends]: It was a simple question. You didn’t answer.

So, there you have it. The leader of House Democrats has endorsed late-term abortion, she considers it   sacred, and any questions that are critical of infanticide are “disrespectful” to women.  A baby at 20   weeks is not a”judgement” on “reproductive health.” It’s a person, and to terminate that child is   murder.    Liberals know this, which is why Pelosi ran away.

From government telling us what to do to the life of the mother superseding that of her child, it is all   part of the top-down model liberals have for civil society.  What’s even more depraved is the fact that   child murder is “sacred” in the eyes of the political left.   from [the Weekly Standard] …

.. the thing is , Nancy Pelosi is a “practising Catholic (sic) , ” and she is Pro – Death . My God , what a colossal hypocrite ! She should be excommunicated on the spot .
