Wow, she has big cajones, a really impressive feat for her. To try to pretend that she’s an “ardent, practicing Catholic” and that the Catholic church is undecided on the issue of abortion. My my goodness.
I’m pure protestant, but I do know that the Catholic church’s stand on abortion has been made crystal clear to me, to the world, to Ms. Pelosi.
Did Augustine really say that?
Is it just me, or is Brokaw asking better questions than he used to?
so like everything else, SanFran Nan doesn’t know.
When asked this question, McCain gave a one word answer: “Conception.” On the other hand, how many words did Nancy use? How many words did Obama use?
Liberals don’t have strong convictions regarding anything, or else they wouldn’t find the need to be so damn wordy all the time.
Maybe she’s trying to figure out if she’s really alive ...
I am tired of this nonsense. An individual life begins even before conception. God knows us even before we’re formed in the womb. These people that would excuse murder as some sort of wonderful public service make me shake my head in disbelief. How sorry for them. They’re in an even worse state than the murdered.
Dr. Hymie Gordon (Mayo Clinic): By all criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception.
Dr. Micheline Matthews-Roth (Harvard University Medical School): It is scientifically correct to say that an individual human life begins at conception.
Dr. Alfred Bongioanni (University of Pennsylvania): I have learned from my earliest medical education that human life begins at the time of conception.
Dr. Jerome LeJeune, the Father of Modern Genetics (University of Descartes, Paris): To accept the fact that after fertilization has taken place a new human has come into being is no longer a matter of taste or opinion . . . it is plain experimental evidence.
Rick Warren: At what point does a baby get human rights in your view?
Sen. Barack Obama: Well, I think that whether you are looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.
It is the stated article of faith of the Roman Catholic Church that life begins at conception, so Augustine’s musings have practically nothing to do with it.
Obviously Ms. Pelosi has never read Humanae Vitae...AND she attempts to obfuscate by using some words from Augustine completely OUT of the historical context of this CLEAR teaching. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....
In a nutshell, she is lying.
I am supporting the GOP candidate running against her:
I think Brokaw, or anyone whose business was the news, would at least be honest enough to pose the question that the Pastor asked instead of something he made up.
It just goes to show you how the leftist liberals will ignore science when it doesn’t give them the answer they want.
When it does, they go on and on about ‘the scientific process’ or the ‘scientific proof’ of something. When biological science or genetics show that it is human life from the moment sperm and egg fuse and have unique DNA, it is not a fully formed person, bubt it is human life. It can be nothing else. We are not fish first, we are not polywogs second, not rats third, and then if mom lets us out, then people. Don’t work like that.
Just keep asking them. They hang themselves with their own words. SHe is going to have so much regret someday for her rationalizations.
San Fran Nan is either misinformed or lying to support NOBAMA for the Catholic Vote....most likely the latter.
When does life begin? Vatican official: Embryos human before implantation
(REP. PELOSI: I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic)
Not much of a Catholic is she is willing to lie on National TV.
Not sure what “Church” she goes to but my Church certainly knows when life begins. Seems it is not above or pay grade.
I learned the answer in my ninth grade biology class. This woman is an idiot.
I just came back from Mass followed by RCIA for 1 1/2 hours. We talked about this and guess what? Life begins at the MOMENT of conception. There is NO reason for abortion. No how, no way. Nancy is a very important woman, very rich, powerful, and very influential. I am a nobody, not even a Catholic yet, but what she has said is wrong. She knows it, too, and so does Biden, and Kerry.
This is an odious stand, but it's a stand! I might interpret Obama's evasiveness as leaving it possible he thinks Singer didnt go far enough. Indeed, coupled with his troubling opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection act, he actually is in line with Singer. That is, it appears he doesnt believe has begun even at birth!
Nancy Pelosi on when life begins:
“IT BEGINS WHEN I SAY IT BEGINS!”
“I’M TRYING TO SAVE THE G@DDAMN PLANET!”

Very strange first post.
