“Let me just say that I’m a big supporter of Roe v. Wade,” Pelosi said, according to The Washington Examiner.
“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.”
Pelosi was pressed again if she considered an unborn child “a human being, but she ignored the question.
When it comes to supporting, abortion Pelosi has been described as extreme by Catholic News Agency:
“The Speaker has long supported legal abortion and has advocated for taxpayer-funded abortion by repealing the Hyde Amendment."
"She has also supported the Equality Act, legislation that the U.S. bishops’ conference (USCCB) has warned would ‘punish’ religious groups opposed to the redefinition of marriage and transgender ideology.”
In 2015, Pelosi was asked a similar question about bout unborn children, she said at the time:
"I have a ‘great standing’ to speak on the matter ‘as a mother of five in six years,’ and that she knows more about having babies than the pope.”
Pelosi dismissed the notion she would be banned from receiving Holy Communion over her pro-abortion stance.
A reporter prompted Pelosi:
“The U.S. Archbishops and the Bishops Conference doesn’t want you to receive Communion. Your remarks on that?”
“No, they don’t. No. I think I can use my own judgment on that,” then continued, “I’m pleased by what the Vatican put out on that subject. Did you read that?”
The reporter responded:
“It’ll be up to the individual priest.”
"No, it basically says, ‘Don’t be divisive on the subject,” Pelosi replied, referring to a May 7 letter from Luis Cardinal Ladaria.
Last month, Pelosi’s hometown bishop said pro-abortion lawmakers refrain from Communion.
“If you find that you are unwilling or unable to abandon your advocacy for abortion, you should not come forward to receive Holy Communion,” said San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said in a pastoral letter.
