House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a break from pushing for open borders and late-term abortions to receive the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for her 'efforts' in expanding Americans' access to healthcare

The ceremony Sunday night in Boston's John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum saw Pelosi accept her award.

“I’m totally at a loss for words. I’m speechless. I’m overwhelmed by the honor of it all,” she said.

The daughter of President Kennedy, Caroline Kennedy, presented the House speaker with the award following a speech where she praised Pelosi for “consistently acting in service of our highest principles and our most vulnerable citizens.”

Several members of the Kennedy family joined Pelosi on the stage after she received the award.

The award is given in honor of JFK to those who purportedly show “political courage” during their lifetime.

Caroline Kennedy, the Honorary Foundation's president, called Speaker Pelosi “the most important woman in American political history,” CBS News reported.

“So, the courage that that takes, really, I think, makes her an example and an inspiration for generations of Americans, men, and women,” Kennedy explains.

Not missing an opportunity to politicize the event, Pelosi brought up the 'issue' of the recently passed near-total abortion ban in Alabama, insisting that the government should not be involved women's choices regarding their bodies.

“I don’t think any politician should have anything to say about a woman’s timing or size of her family or a women’s health,” she said, according to local outlet CBS 4 WBZ.

According to the JFK Presidential Library and Museum’s website:

Pelosi was honored with the award for “putting the national interest above her party's interest to expand access to health care for all Americans and then, against a wave of political attacks, leading the effort to retake the majority and elect the most diverse Congress in our nation's history,”

Past honorees include:

  • John Lewis 
  • John McCain
