Nancy Pelosi thinks God is on her side in her war against Donald Trump and Republicans.
The House Minority Leader invoked Him again on Wednesday as she pleaded with her colleagues not to repeal and replace Obamacare.
“I know my colleagues are people of faith,” Pelosi said about Republican attempts to alter Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood. “They tell us that all the time.”
“So, this is God’s creation, we have a real responsibility to it,” she said.
“To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”
Life News reports Pelosi dodged a question last week about how aborting a baby with a beating heart dishonors God. The news service provided a transcript of the exchange with a CNSNews reporter:
CNSNews.com: “Three weeks ago you said we need to be ‘responsible stewards’ of ‘God’s creation.’”
CNSNews.com: “And that it dishonors God to pull out of the Paris Accord.”
CNSnews.com: “The Heartbeat Protection Act would prohibit aborting a baby with a heartbeat. Does it dishonor God to abort a baby with a beating heart?”
Pelosi did not answer the question directly but said: “I don’t—obviously you want to get into that discussion. What I say is: I completely respect a woman’s right to choose. I am a mother of five children, nine grandchildren. …
Pelosi continued: “I come from a very strong Italian Catholic family and many of my friends and family members do not share my view. But it is my view that it is up to a woman to have her own right to choose the size and timing of her family. God gives us a free will and holds us responsible and accountable for our actions.”
