Nancy Pelosi won’t take question on ‘unborn baby with human heart’

California Democrat Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t say whether an unborn child with a “human heart” and a “human liver” is a human being when pressured by a question from the member of CNS News at a press conference.

Pelosi was asked: “In reference to funding for Planned Parenthood: Is an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver a human being?”

Pelosi stumbled over her answer, saying, “Why don’t you take your ideological questions–I don’t, I don’t have—”

CNS then asked her, “If it’s not a human being, what species is it?”

Pelosi then attempted to dismiss the question with a reference to her “devout” Catholic faith.

“No, listen, I want to say something to you,” she said. “I don’t know who you are and you’re welcome to be here, freedom of this press. I am a devout practicing Catholic, a mother of five children. When my baby was born, my fifth child, my oldest child was six years old. I think I know more about this subject than you, with all due respect.”

“So it’s not a human being, then?” pressed CNS, to which Pelosi said, “And I do not intend to respond to your questions, which have no basis in what public policy is that we do here.”

Pelosi has long used her self-proclaimed status as a “devout” practicing Catholic to promote abortion.

In response to a reporter’s question a proposed ban on late-term abortion in 2013, Pelosi said that the issue of late-term abortion is “sacred ground” for her.

“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this,” Pelosi said. “This shouldn’t have anything to do with politics.”

In 2008, she was asked by then-Meet the Press host David Gregory about when life begins. Pelosi said that “as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue I have studied for a long time. And what I know is that over the centuries, the doctors of the Church have not been able to make that definition….We don’t know.”
