House Minority Leader Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to answer a question on whether an unborn child is a human being and stated such a question has “no basis” in public policy on Thursday.
Pelosi responded to a question on whether “an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver is a human being” by dismissing “ideological questions.” After the reporter asked what species an unborn child is if it’s not a human, Pelosi responded, “I am a devout, practicing Catholic. A mother of five children. I think I know more about this subject than you, with all due respect, and I do not intend to respond to your questions, which have no basis in what public policy is that we do here.”
