In comments to reporters Thursday, Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn violent attacks on pregnancy centres by leftist pro-abortion vandals currently being investigated by the FBI.
Pelosi was asked to comment on the attacks by a reporter who noted that there are concerns that Democrats’ failure to condemn the actions is making the situation worse.
Instead of taking the opportunity to condemn the violence, Pelosi said she supports legalised abortion, declaring “A woman has a right to choose, to live up to her responsibility,” adding “It’s up to her doctor, her family, her husband, her significant other, and her God. This talk of — politicizing all of this is something uniquely American and not right.”
Pelosi then stated that other “Catholic countries” including Ireland, Mexico, and Italy have expanded abortion access, proclaiming “I’m a very Catholic person and I believe in every woman’s right to make her own decisions. Any other questions on another subject because I’m not going to be talking about that?”
Speaker Pelosi just refused to condemn the radical leftist group that has claimed responsibility for a string of violent attacks and threats against pregnancy centers across the nation.
