The abortion issue is probably the most difficult for any Catholic Democrat to talk about.
It shows every time they’re asked a direct question about it.
That’s what happened when Nancy Pelosi was asked a simple yes-or-no question about whether 15-week old babies are human beings.
The only possible answer to that question is a resounding ‘YES.’
Pelosi squirmed and mumbled and ended up giving an answer that no person of faith will easily stomach.
“Let me just say that I am a big supporter of Roe v. Wade. I am a mother of five children in six years. I think I have some standing on this issue as to respecting a woman’s right to choose,”

“If you find that you are unwilling or unable to abandon your advocacy for abortion, you should not come forward to receive Holy Communion,” San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said in a pastoral letter.
Pelosi has long supported abortion rights and has faced many questions on whether her views put her at odds with the teachings of the Church.
Good! She doesn’t belong there anyway!
