I really wonder about this woman’s mental health
But today she dropped a whopper.
Politics is the art of the possible. It’s about using rhetoric and compromise to accomplish the good, since the perfect is unattainable in this world.
Mrs. Pelosi has been in politics for a long time. She has been pro-abortion “rights” for a very long time. She has called herself Catholic for a longer time.
But today she said, “when the Republicans vote for this bill today, they will be voting to say that women can die on the floor…”
This statement is so far out of touch that it beggars belief that any but the most strident, unhinged person would have any reaction apart from, “okay now, sparky, let’s dial it back a bit.” And some might go so far as to call for the guys with the white coat (Lie down before you hurt yourself there, Nance).
Her statement was in reaction to a bill some Republicans are pushing that would restore conscience protections to health care, protecting those who object to abortion on any grounds whatsoever (it ain’t just Catholics, and it ain’t just people of faith), from being compelled to participate in abortions.
The bill does not outlaw abortions, it does not curtail anyone’s “right” to an abortion, it does not do anything but protect from prosecution those who conscientiously say, “this is barbaric and murder, I cannot do this.” Those who still think it okay to murder their child in utero can still do so legally. This law says that those of us who find this practice inhuman, barbaric, and/or diabolical do not have to participate.
The breathtaking irony, of course, is that she is accusing pro-lifers of letting women “die on the floor” (whatever that means, since the vaaaaast majority of abortions are elective and have nothing to do with the health, let alone life/death, of the mother) just because they refuse to participate in the murder of unborn children.
And yet, one of the two major parties in this country considers a woman as unhinged as she is to be one of their top leaders…
