Nancy Pelosi offers no apologies for being pro-abortion

Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.

Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law.


- Catechism of the Catholic Church (paragraphs 2270 and 2271)
Nancy Pelosi says she is a Catholic. That means she should at least be sympathetic to the Church's teachings with regards to abortion and contraception. But in this January 2009 interview on ABC's This Week, she is absolutely unapologetic for her support of "family planning" - which is nothing but a code phrase for abortion and eugenics.



STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?

PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So no apologies for that?

PELOSI: No apologies. No. we have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy.
In the spirit of "never let a good crisis go to waste", Pelosi used the excuse of the Fall 2008 global financial crisis to "expand family planning services" as part of the economic "stimulus" plan. The message is clear - less babies means "less cost". And if abortion is an effective method to achieve less babies, then it can be justified in Pelosi's mind as a "means to achieve an end".

Anyone who thinks that it is just right wing fascists like the Nazis that are pro-eugenics, needs to consider what Pelosi is saying here. She doesn't use the standard PR campaign line of the "women's movement" that abortion is a matter of "free choice" for women. No, she exposes "family planning" for what it is - a social engineering policy which is just one step away from Aldous Huxley's dream of a Brave New World where human reproduction is strictly controlled by the State.

For her dedication in pushing this and other pro-eugenics funding through she received the "Champions of Women's Health Awards" from Planned Parenthood in July 2010. Here she is posing for her award along with a bunch of kids that were lucky enough not to have been victims of "reduced costs" (i.e. aborted or prevented from being conceived through "planning").


The woman to the far left is Cecile Richards. She is the President of Planned Parenthood. According to her bio on Planned Parenthood's webpage, "before joining Planned Parenthood, Ms. Richards served as deputy chief of staff for Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and played a key role in her election as the Democratic Leader in the House of Representatives." It's a small pro-eugenics world.

Richards says of Pelosi, "She's walked across hot coals for us." As Pelosi tells it, she spared no effort to pass a "health care reform bill that will subsidize abortions in insurance plans".
"We had some pretty dark days," Pelosi told the audience. "Sometimes it didn't look as if we'd be able to pass the bill. And sometimes people in the press said to me, This looks pretty desperate. How on earth are you going to pass this bill? And I said well, we're going to pass it.

"And we're going to go up to the gate and we're going to push open the gate," Pelosi said. "And if the gate is locked, we're going to climb over the fence. And if the fence is too high, we're going to pole vault in. And if that doesn't work, we're going to helicopter in. We're going to parachute in. But we're going to pass this obstacle."
"Hot coals"... "gates"... somehow I don't see what all this has to do with the legislative process... unless... hmmm. My suggestion would be for Nancy Pelosi to have a long talk with her local bishop to see what he thinks of her ardent support of Planned Parenthood.

According to official statistics over one million abortions are performed in the United States every year. That's one million children who are sentenced to death before they even have a chance to take their first breath. Planned Parenthood performs over 300,000 abortions annually in the US.

PELOSI: No apologies. No. we have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy.

P.S. I found this video of Speaker of the House. Nancy Pelosi, describing her position on abortion and explaining how she reconciles this with her Catholic faith. While I'm not a fan of the style of the video, I do think that it provides a good compilation of Pelosi's statements versus the official position of the Catholic Church on the issue of abortion.

  1. This woman clearly does not know what she is even talking about! From a purely subjective view, I never liked the look of her and now hearing her frankly ridiculous comments has cemented my view. Being someone who now has some knowledge about the subject (albeit a little) through my job as a clinic admin. I am alarmed at the amount of abortions that take place weekly in my country. AND I have heard nurses speaking of abortions undertaken on babies over 4 months old...this is a truly horrific 'agenda' ...it is REAL HORROR and MURDER ...and we are 'not supposed to talk about it in public'....well if Pelosi can, then I can!
    The facts as I know them here are that many women are having unprotected sex with multiple partners, contracting HP viruses, having multiple abortions, causing physical injury to their bodies due to un-natural sexual practices and then having more abortions, all in a country that is staunchly Christian Orthodox, where 80-90% of the population does go to church regularly and abortion is seen as a sin. Something is happening to the 'culture' and 'morals' of the population...it realy is the breakdown of society as we know it. And yes, Pelosi is right when she says that it will be cheaper, but Big Pharma still gets HUGE profits from the medicines it provides to the Abortion clinics for HPV vaccines, the meds used in theatre and all the various contraceptives that are prescibed (but obviously not being used!)
    I know there are reasons that some abortions must take place, but 300,000 reasons, surely not?

  2. Hi Marty,

    I was just thinking about this. Pelosi represents the new eugenics movement that sees abortion as a way of "nipping the problem in the bud". This is a form of genocidal warfare against anyone that they don't believe is worthy of having children.

    The goal of people like Pelosi is to create economic and social incentives and disincentives (carrots and sticks) to manipulate people into self-sterilizing or auto-castrating. For now they don't want to have to use force - that is there last option.

    The birth control pill - which was funded by Planned Parenthood - led to the "sexual revolution". This was a turning point. It was sold to young people at the time (like myself) as "liberation" - "freedom" from the old sexual tyranny. Even more than Darwinism, this was a truly effective assault on religion by the secularists. The pill had a bigger effect in breaking down morality in society than anything before or since.

    It was the "sexual revolution" that gave the modern "women's movement" its start. From the beginning abortion was one of their biggest issues. Supposedly this would allow women to "take control of their bodies", but actually they lost control. Today's women have become more of a "sex object" than ever.

    The goal of the eugenics movement is to separate sex from reproduction; from children; from families. I would have to say that they have succeeded in creating that separation in the minds of young people. At the same time we are told that there is nothing morally wrong with sex outside of marriage. This is the same secular "morality" that claims that religious morality is just out to make people feel guilty.

    And here we are. The message to young people is very clear. All of this is reinforced by images in movies and TV which tell us that sex outside of marriage is normal and acceptable. Christians are fighting an uphill battle.

    The Catholic Church has refused to compromise - even on contraception. The Church has strong fundamental moral reasons for this, but it also knows that a society that separates sex from God's gift of Life will quickly fall into moral decay.

    It is not so much a matter of the total number of people (population), but the number of children born without a loving family that places such a strain on society. Add to that the fact that most women have no "choice" but to work in order to support the family, and you end up with children that are not receiving the love that they need to become fully mature adults. What we end up with is growing crime, drug addiction, pornography, and a general sense of selfishness which does not allow us to view others as human beings entitled to the same rights and dignity as that which we desire for ourselves.

    Faith, Hope and Love (Charity),

  4. Hi SWW. Thanks for your support of the new direction of the blog. It's a little hard to define the purpose of the blog now. I made an attempt in the "about" section. Basically it is to take a Catholic perspective of the culture - at times in a critical way, and at other times in an affirmative way.

    I think this is an extension of what I was doing before, and gives the criticism of occult themes a clear perspective. The danger of constantly pointing out occult themes is that both the writer and reader can end up becoming obsessed with the occult. (I think this happens over at Vigilant Citizen with a lot of his readers.) So I have become much more overt about my Christian beliefs and this has also made my criticisms of the popular culture much clearer.

    The issue of birth control and contraceptives is one in which the Catholic Church has taken a clear leadership role - especially since Humanae Vitae ("of human life") by Pope Paul VI in 1968. This has put the Catholic Church in direct confrontation with the Humanist agenda.

    Notice that in the New York Times article they say that the goal of the new contraceptive technology is to "reduce poverty". That sounds a lot better than to say that the goal is to "reduce population". Bill Gates seems to be involved in funding this new "contraception research". He has also talked about supporting "vaccination programs". Some people have wondered if the goals of the vaccinations might be something more than just disease prevention.

    Its not hard to see the relationship between contraception, "family planning", abortion and eugenics. It is much easier to morally justify genocide if it is done in a "preventive" way rather than through mass slaughter.

    One scenario that has been suggested is some sort of vaccination at a young age that would render a person infertile. The person would then have to pay some sort of fee to be able to temporarily reverse this effect. This would give the government complete control over human reproduction.

    It would only be a small incremental step from there to have all babies "hatched" in a government controlled facility like in Huxley's Brave New World. An "artificial womb" would be a radical feminists dream come true.

    Recently there have been reports of advances in creating "artificial ovaries" to develop mature human egg cells.
