I barely get to read news, anymore, but I stumbled across this interesting exchange between Nancy Pelosi and a reporter:
The reporter sparked the exchange by asking: “Is an unborn baby with a human heart and human liver a human being?”
“Why don’t you take your ideological questions…I don’t know who you are, and you’re welcome to be here and freedom of this press,” Pelosi said. “I am a devout, practicing Catholic. A mother of five children. When my baby was born, my firth child, my oldest child, was six years old. I think I know more about this subject than you, with all due respect.”Pelosi then said she did “not intend” to answer the question. It wasn’t immediately clear which news outlet the reporter was representing.
It must be unimaginably difficult to deliver your fifth child when your oldest is a six year old. As a mother, I more than recognize that, and I truly hope Pelosi had some sort of support system to help her.
But Pelosi has often used that story to defend her 100% NARAL approval rating and her unconditional support of Planned Parenthood. The next time she does, a reporter needs to ask the right question, which is simply this: “which one of the five could you have done without?”
Drop mic, etc.
Another question, but it would be a little mean, might be, “why do you use your children as justification for abortion?”
