Pelosi: Late-term abortions ‘sacred ground’ to me as a practicing Catholic

Pelosi was asked today to explain the moral difference between what Kermitt Gosnell did in Philadelphia to babies born alive that were between 22 and 25 weeks and an abortion doctor who will perform elective abortions at 28 weeks into pregnancy, or even aborting a child moments before birth. But as you might expect, she refused to answer the question and jibber-jabbered about it being sacred ground because she’s a ‘practicing’ Catholic or something. What baloney.

I don’t even care to watch the video
nevertheless liberals/progressives/socialists usually do not think or
reason logically, morally, truthfully and coherently. theirs is the
overriding and intractable ” religious belief ” i.e
secular humanism that trumps everything else including common sense,
morals, rational thought,  history, proven traditions, conscience, and value of
human life. not to mention God therefore  these self-professed
catholics or christians or believers of God like pelosi have practically another
god other than the true biblical God (the true source of logic and reason and truth and morality) – their own vain and self-important,
selfish self.

Typical Lib technique – act offended and refuse to answer the question because you are just sooooo offended. No one will dare challenge her non-answer. Plus, it must be helpful to be an absolute idiot when running for office.

If Pelosi calls abortion “sacred ground” that shows that progressive democrats have a religion of death.
Her words were supported by Dear Leader who asked god to bless Planned Parenthood.
Progressives don’t like it, and take offense (unjustifiably), but tell me, what is the difference between their philosophy and the Nazi’s final solution?

Beats the crap out of me to understand how anyone with an iq of 20 or higher could ever vote for that flea bagger hypocrite.
Maybe, I’m just a biased conservative, tea party libertarian, certified union hater, who has an expectation of ethical and high moral standards for some truth and honesty from those who are supposed to be leaders of the USA.

What is reprehensible Stretch is that you refuse to acknowledge the evil nature of  murdering babies- what you call reprehensible is Gosnell NOT murdering babies, but the act of disrespecting a woman’s judgement  of “reproductive health”. Like the dear leader, you and all those who believe in infanticide choose to look at the so called choice and choose an unConstitutional and egregious ruling in the Roe v Wade case, which was based on a lie, over the life of a viable human baby. THAT is what’s reprehensible Stretch. AND that you USE your Catholicism to defend it?! HOW?! I’m not Catholic, but I’m pretty sure your popes have all ruled that life begins at conception. You are an evil vile hag. You will have a rude awakening some day before the Judgement seat of Christ. I pray you wake up, stop floating your brain in botox and realize that innocent… Read more »

You hypocrite Twit. You’re about as much a ‘practicing Catholic’ as I am and I haven’t been in a Catholic church (or any other church, for that matter), in over half a century. Maybe you ought to pass a Catholic church one day to see what’s in it.

I’ve learned to be wary of when define themselves as “practicing” Catholics/Christians/whatever.  For all I know, Pelosi might be a practicing Catholic, but what does that really mean?  She may go to services, take the Eucharist, say the prayers, go to confession and all the other modes of Catholic practice.  Doesn’t mean she really believes any of it, or that she agrees with what the Catholic Church may profess.  She’s simply a nominal Catholic who might enjoy doing some of the rituals.
I would suggest the Catholic Church reacquaint itself with 1 Corinthians 5:11 and rebuke such people who claim to follow our Lord, yet sully His Name.

Abortion not having to do with politics?  She was behind the Sandra Fluke nonsense and the war on women crap!
The fact is “allowed” to say this and get no one else in that so called press room cares, speaks volumes about the moral caliber of society.
It is also telling that Pelosi is revered in our culture and someone like Palin is mocked and denigrated.  Sick times.

For me, the worst part of the video is the reaction from the press corp.  Pelosi was asked a legitimate question and when she initially responded with a snide comment, the rest of the press corp laughed at reporter asking the question as if he was a silly man for asking a childish question.

Folks, as a practicing Catholic, I know from experience that there are two Catholic Churches in this country – the American Patriotic Church, which was infiltrated by Marxists and homosexuals, and supports everything the left puts forth, and then there is the true Catholic Church which is totally loyal to the Magisterium, but unfortunately is in the minority.This is why the politicians have no fear of censure.God help these politicians and the prelates – what a terrible judgment awaits them.

Yup! If you find the term “social justice” anywhere on your church literature… Go find another Catholic Church to attend, it’s code for “Socialst left wing catholic (with a small ‘c’) agenda pushers.

WolfieUSA Siobhan7   That crap started when the Catholic Church tried to modernize in the 60’s thinking they could be hip and have people playing acoustic guitars in church and all the “young” people would start coming to church.  It was like a damn Hootenanny in church there for awhile.  Personally, I like to listen to Monks chant.

I just can’t understand how killing a baby is debatable, and yet today, I heard someone on air say that because men don’t have a vagina they have no right to speak on the issue.  Exactly what does my sex have to do with my belief that infanticide is just wrong.

I didn’t watch the video because I got the gist of it.  Since when is it the policy of the Catholic church to view abortions as “sacred ground”?  She can have that sacred ground all she wants on a personal basis, but don’t connect it to her religion as if abortions are sanctioned by the church.

I’m disappointed that people have sort of let the Gosnell case slip away and stop the general debate over late-term abortions. It happens a lot more frequently than miscreants like Pelosi like to admit, yet they would rather have their spleen cut out with a warm spoon rather than give up an inch in the abortion debate. Just shows you how biased and hypocritical they really are. They can’t even utter the word “Gosnell” and won’t admit that what he did was not only horrific, it was murder. I have nothing but contempt for people like Pelosi.
