Abortion has recently become its own religious tenet in the Democrat Party, so much so that even discussing the dangers of the procedure is blasphemous enough to find yourself ex-communicated from the liberal cult.
Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who claims to be a Roman Catholic, and a mother of five, doesn’t dare speak of the practice, even in its defense.
During a press conference on Thursday, the speaker ducked, dodged, and decline to answer even the simplest questions about second trimester abortions, choosing instead to deliver personal anecdotes about her experience as a mother.
When asked of Pelosi, “Is an unborn baby at 15 weeks a human being?” Pelosi squirmed, her body language tightened, and the House Speaker became noticeably uncomfortable by the question.
Of course, she declined to give a direct answer to the direct question, instead citing her support for the Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling of Roe v. Wade.
“Let me just say that I’m a big supporter of Roe v. Wade,” Pelosi said, “I am a mother of five children in six years. I have some standing on this issue as to respecting a woman’s right to choose.”
This year the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case reviewing a law in Mississippi banning most abortions in the second trimester after 15 weeks.
The reporter pushed the issue, asking the House Speaker yet again if she believed a 15-week-old unborn child is a “human being.” And again, Pelosi refused to answer, moving quickly to another topic.
Her appeal to authority is answer enough. Pelosi’s personal anecdote as a mother herself comes off especially bad because as such, a definitive opinion on the subject of abortion seems most apt.
However, as the current taste-maker for the Democrat Party, Pelosi must bow her head in devotion to the liberal religious tenets of the day. For a large coalition of her party, there’s a believe that abortion should be readily available through all nine months of pregnancy, so it remains a political suicide mission for Pelosi to even comment on her stance on procedures performed in the second trimester.

This isn’t the first instance Pelosi used her expert diversion tactics to distract from her undying support for the baby killing procedure of abortion.
For Example, in 2015 she was asked b report Sam Dorman, “Is an unborn baby with a human heart and human liver considered, in your opinion, as a human being?”
“Why don’t you take your ideological questions — I don’t know who you are, and you’re welcome to be here and freedom of this press,” she dodged.
Dorman also asked her to specify her definition of what constitutes a “fetus.”
“I think I know more about this subject than you do. I am a devout Catholic, still practicing. I am a mother of five children. With all due respect, I am more experienced on this issue than you or anyone in the press.”
Again, she gives a non-answer with a direct appeal to authority.
There’s a pattern to how she avoids answering questions about abortion. She first cites motherhood and her faith and then says in so many words, “What more needs to be said?”
In other words, like her appeals to motherhood, citing her faith to defend her support for abortion actually makes her look worse.
