On Thursday, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) blasted a bill prohibiting late-term abortions except when the mother’s life is in danger by calling such abortions “sacred ground.” She said, “As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this. I don’t think it should have anything to do with politics.”
Catholic doctrine is traditionally pro-life.
Pelosi also lied by stating that the bill itself would “make it a federal law that there would be no abortion in our country.”
