The Patriot Post® · Pelosi the 'Devout Catholic'
According to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), “As a devout Catholic … [taxpayer-funded abortion] is an issue of fairness and justice for poor women in our country.” Of course, Joe Biden makes the same fallacious claim.
“Fairness and justice” for everyone — except the poor child!
Pelosi was endorsing taxpayer-funded termination of preborn children, which her Demo lemmings voted to authorize last week. As noted by the editors of National Review: “From 1976 to 2020, regardless of partisan control of Congress, every appropriations bill funding Medicaid included the Hyde amendment, which prohibits federal funding of abortions for enrollees except in rare circumstances. … But … not a single House Democrat voted against either appropriations bill on the grounds that the legislation would force American taxpayers to fund the deliberate destruction of innocent human lives at home and abroad.”
At its core, this vote was designed to terminate children who would expand the numbers of what Pelosi calls “the poor,” which is code for “undesirable races.” What Pelosi and her Demos voted for is precisely what Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger advocated.
Sanger characterized the poor as “human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning … human beings who never should have been born.”
As for ministry to the poor, central to the faith of “devout Catholics,” Sanger argued: “Those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding, and is perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents, and dependents. My criticism, therefore, is not directed at the failure of philanthropy, but rather at its success. These dangers are inherent in the very idea of humanitarianism and altruism, dangers which have today produced their full harvest of human waste.”
This, among other reasons, is why I have argued that Democrats are the architects of white supremacy.
Eviscerating Pelosi’s “devout Catholic” assertion, her San Francisco archbishop, Salvatore J. Cordileone, responded: “Let me repeat: no one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it. The right to life is a fundamental — the most fundamental — human right, and Catholics do not oppose fundamental human rights.”
Cordileone continued: “To use the smokescreen of abortion as an issue of health and fairness to poor women is the epitome of hypocrisy: what about the health of the baby being killed? What about giving poor women real choice, so they are supported in choosing life? … This would give them fairness and equality to women of means, who can afford to bring a child into the world. It is people of faith who run pro-life crisis pregnancy clinics; they are the only ones who provide poor women life-giving alternatives to having their babies killed in their wombs. I cannot be prouder of my fellow Catholics who are so prominent in providing this vital service. To them I say: you are the ones worthy to call yourselves ‘devout Catholics’!”
Pelosi and Biden are the consummate rich, white, leftist hypocrites and the enemies of Liberty, and the “devout Catholic” claim exemplifies their unmitigated penchant for lying.
