Asked About Attacks on Churches, Crisis Pregnancy Centers, Pelosi Says It’s ‘Not Right’ to Politicize the Right to Choose

Thursday, before a reporter could finish asking her question about the recent rash of attacks on churches and crisis pregnancy centers, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) cut her off and launched into a lecture reiterating her support for abortion.

At her weekly press briefing, a reporter began to ask Pelosi a question about the danger posed by Democrats’ failure to publicly condemn the attacks. Without waiting for the full question, Pelosi asserted her support for “the right to choose” abortion.

“This talk of, politicizing all of this” is “not right,” Pelosi declared.

“Any other questions on another subject, because I’m not going to be talking about that, anymore?” Pelosi told reporters, after she first claimed to be “a very Catholic person.”

Pelosi had previously ducked a question about whether or not she agrees with Pope St. John Paul II and Pope Francis, who both said that abortion is murder.


“WATCH: Nancy Pelosi is asked about dozens of pro-life clinics being vandalized and attacked, but REFUSES to condemn the actions,” RNC Research tweeted, posting video of Speaker Pelosi’s response to the question about the attacks on churches and pregnancy centers.

“The pro-crime party,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) tweeted, commenting on the video posted by RNC Research.

Reporter: “As far as abortion is concerned, there have been a number of attacks on churches, crisis pregnancy centers. Republicans are going after Democrats for not saying anything and they’re saying that your rhetoric is contributing to these attacks on these crisis pregnancy centers”…

Speaker Pelosi: “Well, let me just say this. A woman has a right to choose, to live up to her responsibility. It’s up to her, her doctor, her family, her husband, her significant other, and her God.

“This talk of, politicizing all of this, I think, is something uniquely American and not right.

“Other countries – Ireland, Italy, Mexico – have had legislate, initiatives to expand a woman’s right to choose – very Catholic countries. I’m a very Catholic person and I believe in every woman’s right to make her own decisions.

“Any other questions on another subject, because I’m not going to be talking about that, anymore?”
