Never mind that Senate Democrats blocked a resolution calling for hearings on the Kermit Gosnell “House of Horrors” case and abortion, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters this afternoon the case is “really disgusting.”

Pelosi was asked if she was familiar with the Gosnell case and if Congress should hold hearings.

“I think that whatever went on there – I only know what you all report on it – is really disgusting,” Pelosi responded to one reporter’s question. “It is really disgusting and when we talk about reproductive health for women, that’s not what we’re talking about.”

After saying this, Pelosi did not answer further about whether hearings were necessary.
