U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday again invoked her Catholic faith while asserting her pro-abortion stance, but she remained silent on mounting attacks targeting Catholic churches and pro-life pregnancy centers.
“I’m a very Catholic person and I believe in every woman’s right to make her own decisions,” the Democrat from California said during her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill.
The Catholic Church considers abortion — the destruction of a human person — a grave evil.
At the same press conference, Pelosi declined to say whether she agreed with Pope St. John Paul ll and Pope Francis that “abortion is murder.”
