House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi often uses spiritual terms to defend her position on various political issues. On Wednesday, the pro-abortion Democrat used this tactic again, arguing there is a “spiritual” connection between mothers and their babies – born babies, that is.
Pelosi, who claims to be Catholic, made the remark in response to a U.S. House resolution addressing illegal immigrants and their children at the borders. The Republican-backed resolution, which passed by a strong majority, expressed support for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers and personnel.
“This resolution does nothing to prevent the separation of babies from their mothers,” Pelosi responded. “You’re parents. You know in the night, you hear a sound from the room down the hall, that connection is something beyond material.
“It is spiritual. It is about parent and child, mother and child, father and child, and now we’re going to rip that apart,” Pelosi continued.
The Church Militant quickly pointed out Pelosi’s hypocrisy, contrasting her radical support of the killing of unborn babies with her supposed support for born children.
“Nancy Pelosi’s comments are disgustingly hypocritical and maddeningly ironic,” Michael Hichborn of the Lepanto Institute told Church Militant. “These words about ripping babies from their mothers come from someone who fiercely defended the barbaric practice of partially delivering a baby, feet-first, so the baby can be stabbed in the back of the neck and his brains sucked out before full delivery.”
Her hypocrisy is nothing new. Last summer, Pelosi criticized pro-life Republicans for not honoring God by working to defund the abortion chain Planned Parenthood and repeal and replace Obamacare.
“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…”

One week earlier, a reporter confronted Pelosi about the contradiction between her stance on abortion and her faith, and the U.S. House leader dodged the question. When the CNS News reporter asked Pelosi if aborting an unborn baby with a beating heart dishonors God, Pelosi appeared flustered and then gave a non-answer.
In 2013, she put her foot in her mouth during a press conference, calling the battle to keep late-term abortions legal “sacred ground.”
Pelosi’s stance on abortion is radical in most Americans’ eyes. Polls consistently show that most Americans oppose most abortions. A 2018 Gallup poll found that 53 percent of Americans want all or most abortions to be made illegal. Just a slim percent of Americans want abortion to be legal up until birth, and most do not want their tax dollars to pay for abortions.
