As the Free Beacon noted, Pelosi was upset and may have used the outburst to not answer the question at hand.
When asked if she believes an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver is a human being, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi used her Catholic faith to shame a reporter and avoid the question Thursday afternoon.
“Why don’t you take your ideological questions–listen, I want to say something to you,” Pelosi said, waving her hand at the reporter. “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.”
Pelosi did not reveal if she believed the unborn baby was a human being or not.
Despite admitting not knowing the reporter, Pelosi said she knew more about the subject because of her faith and her experience as a mother. The minority leader’s assertion goes against the views of the Catholic Church, however.
