House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called herself a “very Catholic person” and defended abortion after being pressed about recent attacks on churches and crisis pregnancy centers.
The moment unfolded Thursday when a reporter asked Pelosi during her daily press conference about the string of vandalisms as well as Republican criticism of some Democrats’ rhetoric and subsequent silence.
“There has been a number of attacks on churches, on crisis pregnancy centers,” a reporter said. “Republicans are going after Democrats for not saying anything, and they’re saying that your rhetoric is contributing to these attacks.”
Pelosi interrupted, but rather than address the attacks impacting pro-life organizations, she took time to defend abortion rights.
“Well, let me just say this: a woman has a right to choose. To live up to her responsibility it’s up to her, her doctor, her family, her husband, her significant other, and her God,” she said. “This talk of politicizing all of this, I think, is something uniquely American and not right. Other countries, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, have had legislative initiatives to expand a woman’s right to choose. Very Catholic countries.”
Pelosi continued, “I’m a very Catholic person, and I believe in every woman’s right to make her own decisions.”
Watch Pelosi’s remarks:
Pelosi is pressed on whether Democrat rhetoric is fueling attacks on crisis pregnancy centers.
She refuses to condemn attacks – and says “politicizing all of this is uniquely American.”
