PELOSI Smacks Conservative Reporter: "I Think I Know More About THIS Subject Than YOU"

Nancy Pelosi smacks down a conservative reporter’s anti-abortion talking points
A conservative reporter asks a loaded question about Planned Parenthood, and the congresswoman lets him have it


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has long been among Democrats’ fiercest champions of reproductive rights. She’s also a self-described “devout, practicing Catholic” and mother of five children. Pelosi sees no contradiction between her ardent feminism and her family and religious background, and she doesn’t hesitate to bring up the latter when discussing the former.

The former House Speaker vividly illustrated that during her weekly press briefing on Thursday, when a reporter seized on the recent controversy over federal Planned Parenthood funding to ask her whether a fetus constituted a human being.

“I am a devout, practicing Catholic. A mother of five children,” Pelosi responded. “When my [fifth] baby was born … my oldest child was six years old. I think I know more about this subject than you, with all due respect.”

1. she basically said she would not respond to an ideological

question that has no basis in public policy. I could not quiet hear the question but I do trust Nancy did. Stay strong. Nancy and thank you.

2. I believe the IRS has determined that until a baby takes a breathe it is not a person

If a fetus is a person then one would be able to get a SS number for it
