Fresh from receiving the Margaret Sanger award from Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is getting another honor, but one she probably doesn’t deserve.

Following his visit with Pope Francis at the Vatican last week, President Obama gave a rosary the leader of the Catholic Church blessed as a gift to the abortion activist.

As Breitbart reports:

Speaker Pelosi Holds Weekly News ConferenceOn Tuesday, Pelosi discussed Obama’s gift to her with reporters after a luncheon with the president at the White House.

As the Washington Times reports, Pelosi said, “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis. It means a great deal to me.”

Speaking about pro-life individuals, Pelosi said, “…When you see how closed their minds are or oblivious or whatever it is – dumb – then you know what the fight is about.”

Last year, Cardinal Raymond Burke, chief justice of the Vatican’s highest court, said that Pelosi should not receive communion.

Previously, Pelosi made a  crass comment on the abortion issue as she went after pro-life Republicans saying they need a lesson in Sex Education 101. She attacked pro-life legislators in state legislatures across the nation who are passing new pro-life laws to limit abortions in places like Texas and North Carolina, saying they needed a lesson on “the birds and the bees.”

The recent comments come after Pelosi put her foot in her mouth during a press conference, calling the battle to keep late-term abortions legal sacred ground.
