During a press briefing Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi got called out for using God in her defense of the Paris climate change agreement – and how it differs from her stance on abortion.
As noted by the Free Beacon, Pelosi is a Catholic, but the Catholic Church is firmly opposed to abortion.
A reporter asked Pelosi, “Three weeks ago you said that we need to be responsible stewards of God’s creation and that it dishonors God to pull out of the Paris Accord. The Heartbeat Protection Act would prohibit aborting a baby with a heartbeat. Does it dishonor God to abort a baby with a beating heart?”
“Obviously you want to get into that discussion,” Pelosi said sarcastically.
She added, “But it is my view that it is up to a woman to have her own right to choose the size and timing of her family. God gives us the freewill and holds us responsible and accountable for our actions.”
Evidently she feels the same freewill doesn’t apply to President Trump and the Paris agreement.
