Pelosi’s Support for Abortion Tells a Larger Story

The following comes from a June 20 story in Crisis Magazine.

It’s hardly news to faithful Catholics that the Democratic Party is the evil party for championing abortion and sodomy. And the chief pro-abortion Democrat in this country beside Barack Hussein Obama and his vice president is Nancy Pelosi, former speaker of the U.S. House who proclaims herself a good and devout Catholic. Last week, she proclaimed it again. During an exchange with a reporter from The Weekly Standard about Kermit Gosnell’s house of horrors in the City of Brotherly Love, she again proclaimed her fealty to the highest sacrament in the leftist church: the mass murder of the unborn. And she is, one presumes, still “a Catholic in good standing.” To the best of anyone’s knowledge, no bishop has said otherwise.

Pelosi’s remarks occasion a reprise of a simple truth about abortion: If it weren’t for pro-abortion “Catholics,” the practice might well be against the law.
