Pro-life Congressman Andy Biggs urged lawmakers Monday to kick out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her divisive “elitism” and “power against the powerless.”
In a column at Fox News, Biggs, a pro-life Republican from Arizona and chair of the House Freedom Caucus, accused Pelosi of exerting her power over others while ignoring the rules herself.
“Isn’t it past time for Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to leave her office as Speaker of the House? I call upon our leaders in Congress to put forward the Motion to Vacate the Chair that has been prepared and merely needs to be brought to the floor,” he wrote.
Biggs focused on Pelosi’s recent visit to a California hair salon in violation of coronavirus restrictions. The California congresswoman refused to take responsibility for breaking the rules and blamed the salon owner, a single mother, instead – a move that Biggs described as an “air of elitism that has been the hallmark of her tenure as speaker.”
“The speaker is willing to show her power against the powerless, who have been shut down by command of the local tyrants for months,” Biggs wrote.
Pelosi’s actions against “the powerless” extend to unborn babies as well. As speaker, she repeatedly has used her position to push for abortion on demand. Once, she even described late-term abortions as “sacred ground.”
In August, she and other House Democrat leaders announced plans to aggressively push for taxpayer-funded elective abortions starting next year. If they are successful, about 60,000 more unborn babies could be aborted annually.

Last year, Pelosi, who claims to be Catholic, also blocked legislation to protect newborns who survive abortions from infanticide.
As Speaker of the House, she has 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.
Biggs accused Pelosi of exuding a pride that “simply says, ‘I’m better than you.’ It is a lack of love and humanity.” It’s clear from Pelosi’s abortion advocacy that she has no love for unborn babies, millions of whom have been slaughtered in abortions during her leadership.
