Pro-abortion Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi quoted the Bible again Sunday to defend her plan to release prisoners early during the coronavirus crisis.
The speaker of the House often touts herself as a devout Catholic and a compassionate individual, and she frequently quotes scripture to justify her political actions.
In an interview Sunday with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Pelosi used a passage from the New Testament to explain why she is advocating for the early release of certain prisoners in a new coronavirus relief bill, Townhall reports.
“In our caucus, we are very devoted to the Gospel of Matthew,” Pelosi said. “’When I was hungry, you fed me. When I was homeless, you sheltered me. When I was in prison, you visited me,’ and so this for us is part of our value system.”
She said the House Judiciary Committee is working on language to clarify which prisoners can leave because they “really don’t need to be there.”
“Everything should be about the truth,” Pelosi said. “What are the numbers? … What is the science of this, of these people being together there unnecessarily in many cases, some of them having served enough of a sentence to leave? They [should] be protected, … their health be protected, it shouldn’t be a risk of life.”

Later, she added, “We want to protect everyone.”
But that is not true. Pelosi does not want to protect everyone, especially the most innocent, defenseless of all human beings – babies in the womb.
Abortion facilities across the country remain open for business, even though they are destroying lives, not saving them. Recently, medical groups representing more than 30,000 doctors in America emphasized that abortions are not “essential” or “urgent,” and abortion facilities that continue to operate during the pandemic are being “medically irresponsible.”
Though Pelosi claims to be Catholic, she is a radical pro-abortion Democrat who supports abortions for any reason up to birth. Last year, she repeatedly blocked legislation to protect newborns who survive abortions from infanticide. Once, she even described late-term abortions as “sacred ground.”
The Democrat leader also fights against religious freedom for the very faith that she claims to be a part of. Earlier this month, she joined an amicus brief arguing against the Little Sisters of the Poor, a nuns’ charity that opposes the Obamacare contraception mandate. The nuns have been fighting in court for years for relief from the mandate, which forces employers to pay for contraception that may cause abortions in their employee health plans.
