Pelosi Dodge/Duck on Abortion, Chapter 3 (Biden, Too)

Queen Nancy has a NEW story on her abortion problem.

A spokeswoman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended the speaker's position as a "pro-abortion Catholic", not because the Church is unclear on when life begins, as earlier stated, but because Catholics routinely contravene "clear Catholic teaching" against abortion.

In a statement praising Pelosi's appreciation for "the sanctity of the family," Brenda Daly, speaking for Pelosi, said, "While Catholic teaching is clear that life begins at conception, many Catholics do not ascribe to that view."

Brenda Daly's statement says that Pelosi is not justified in her pro-abortion stance due to vague Church teaching, but on the basis that many other "Catholics" also violate Church teaching

This from someone who is, by title, the most important law-maker in the House of Representatives?

"Well, Mom and Dad, Suzie and Billy and Joey get to drink at the prom. Why can't I?"

As it turns out, Queen Nancy is, essentially, plagiarizing Joe Biden.

Just like Pelosi, in an April 27, 2007 interview, also with Meet the Press, Biden defended his support for abortion with references to ancient Church leadership, which he interpreted as questioning abortion. "Even within our own church, there's been debates about life, you know, from, from 'Summa Theologica,' Aquinas, and 40 days to quickening and right to, you know, you know, Pius IX, animated fetus doctrine and so on."

The Windbag deliberately sprays foofoodust on the question. The Church has taught, since the 1st Century, that abortion is a grave moral evil, no matter the 'quickening' or 'animation.' St. Augustine speculated ONLY on the 'degree' of gravity--never on the fundamental question. Thomas Aquinas speculated on the 'moment of ensoulment,' NOT on whether abortion was a grave evil.

There is some debate as to whether these people are liars or ignoramuses. In either case, they should not hold responsible office in the United States of America, whose first principles were listed as "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

No accident that "life" was first listed.

Ah. Got it. Some Catholics are wrong or imperfect, therefore anything is justified.

Give me a freakin' break. Keep pushing the baby-killing agenda, folks. It looks really good to those undecided, moderate voters.

Just remember she is a liberal democrat. They have no standards and they do whatever they want. Their head is so high in the clouds that they think rules are made for others, not themselves. How else would you explain Ted Kennedy, Robert Byrd, Bill Clinton (the lying, not the sex)William Jefferson and the many more scoundrels.
