Just one day after she said that Republicans are supposedly dishonoring God by attempting to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business, Nancy Pelosi is at it again.

At her press conference today she said that funding the Planned Parenthood abortion company supposedly “respects the dignity and worth of every person.”

Pelosi, a Democrat who claims to be Catholic, supports Planned Parenthood and abortion on demand, in opposition to the Catholic faith. When it is convenient, however, Pelosi brings up her faith in public when she wants to criticize her opponents or support her own political position.

On Tuesday, she mentioned honoring God and conscience in her reaction to Republicans’ plans to repeal and replace Obamacare and defund the abortion chain Planned Parenthood, the Free Beacon reports.

“I know my colleagues are people of faith,” Pelosi said. “They tell us that all the time. So, this is God’s creation, we have a real responsibility to it…to minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us…”

Pelosi also told Republican lawmakers to “examine their consciences and look into their hearts” before they vote so they can “make a decision in favor of what is right.”

Today, CNS News asked Pelosi about those remarks and she delivered another whopper:

At the Capitol on Thursday, asked Rep. Pelosi, “On the health care bill, yesterday you said that ignoring the needs of God’s creation is to ‘dishonor the God who made us.’ Do you believe that defunding Planned Parenthood dishonors God?”

Pelosi did not answer the question and instead said, “I think defunding Planned Parenthood disrespects every woman in this country, disrespects her judgment to make her own decision about the size and timing of her family, with herself, her doctor, her God, her family.”

“And so, I think we have to respect the dignity and worth of every person and their ability to make decisions to answer for their behavior,” said the House Minority Leader.
