Pro-abortion Democrat Nancy Pelosi claimed everything she does is “about the children” Thursday when she slammed President Donald Trump’s actions on the coronavirus.
Pelosi supports taxpayer-funded abortion on demand and recently blocked a bill to protect newborns from infanticide, but she told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that children’s well-being is the focus of her political actions.
Because of the children, she said, Congress needs to pass another economic relief bill to allow mail-in voting and help schools re-open safely, Breitbart reports.
“If we’re going to educate our children, we have to have the facts in terms of what is needed, and they’re rejecting the expert recommendations of the American Association of Superintendents of Schools,” Pelosi said. Later, she added, “It’s about the children.”
The California politician went on to criticize Trump for blocking Democrats’ attempts to give additional money to schools and other programs.
“Let me just say this … you know everything I do is about the children,” Pelosi said. “You know, having five children of my own, nine grandchildren, I worry about everybody’s children in America, of course.”
She continued: “I have advice for them whether they want it or not. And one of the things that is so terrible is in this epidemic because we’re saying we have to assault the virus, we have to defeat the virus, contain the virus, stop the spread, and that means we have to have testing, tracing, treatment, masks, spacing, all the rest of it.”

Pelosi said minority children are especially vulnerable to the virus and are “suffering an undue disproportionate impact.”
Minority children also disproportionately suffer when they are killed in abortions (abortion is the number one killer of black lives in America), but Pelosi does not support protections for those children.
Though Pelosi claims to be Catholic, she is a radical pro-abortion Democrat who supports abortion without restriction up to birth. Last year, she blocked legislation to protect newborns who survive abortions from infanticide more than 80 times. Once, she even described late-term abortions as “sacred ground.”
As Speaker of the House, she attempted to dismantle the pro-life policies of the Trump administration and restore funding cuts to Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses. Despite claiming to be pro-choice, she also criticized pro-life pregnancy centers for providing information and support to mothers and babies.
The Democrat leader also fights against religious freedom for the very faith that she claims to be a part of. Earlier this year, she joined an amicus brief arguing against the Little Sisters of the Poor, a nuns’ charity that opposes the Obamacare contraception mandate. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the nuns’ favor in July.
