House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined Hillary Clinton on a podcast this week where she bragged about being more Catholic than pro-life Americans because she has five children.
Pelosi, a pro-abortion Democrat from California, says she is a devout Catholic, but many of her actions contradict her faith. Among other things, she wants to force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions and force nuns who serve the poor and elderly to cover contraception that may cause abortions in their employee health plans. Once, she even called killing viable, late-term unborn babies in abortions “sacred ground.”
On Clinton’s “You and Me Both” podcast this week, the two complained about President Donald Trump and the tens of millions of Americans who voted for him, Breitbart reports.
Pelosi said she feels “great grief as a Catholic” that so many people voted for Trump because he is pro-life.
“I think that Donald Trump is president because of the issue of a woman’s right to choose. When he signed that paper saying, ‘These are the judges that I will appoint,’ that was the dog whistle to the Evangelicals, to the Catholics, and all the rest: A woman will not have the right to choose,” she said.

Clinton agreed, saying she was “horrified” by the support Trump received.
Rather than recognize that Democrat leaders’ radical pro-abortion agenda is the problem, Pelosi deflected her criticism onto voters who prioritize rights and protections for unborn babies.
“When you take the greed of those who want their tax cut, that’s probably a small number, but nonetheless a number, and then you take the abortion issue – and many of these people are very good people; that’s just their point of view,” she said. “But they were willing to sell the whole democracy down the river for that one issue.”
Slamming pro-lifers as “hypocrites,” Pelosi asserted that she is the better person “because many of these people, of course, are not having 13 children.”
“And as somebody who had five children almost exactly to the day in six years, I said to my colleagues, when you have five children in six years, you come around and talk to me as a Catholic,” she said.
Pelosi said she also believes that President-elect Joe Biden and future Vice President Kamala Harris will unify Americans.
Asked what Biden and Harris can do to “overcome the damage that has been done,” she replied: “Well, we have that responsibility, that’s for sure. But I do believe that Joe Biden is a unifier, that he will be as respectful as he is firm as we go forward.”
But, like Pelosi, Biden supports a radical pro-abortion agenda that will divide and anger many Americans.
He, Harris and Pelosi want to end the Hyde Amendment, a popular, long-standing measure that prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid. Researchers estimate it has saved at least 2.4 million babies’ lives, and polls consistently show that Americans, including many Democrat voters, support it.
Biden’s administration also is expected to roll back religious freedom and conscience protections for pro-life individuals and employers, protections that Trump put in place for people like a Vermont nurse who said her employer tricked her into helping abort an unborn baby.
These policies are not unifying, they are divisive. Actions speak louder than words, and Pelosi’s and Biden’s plans to expand abortions and infringe on religious freedoms would hurt Catholics and the most vulnerable people who they serve, including babies in the womb.
