Father,

I am sure by now you have heard the remarks House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made this past weekend on Meet The Press. Moderator Tom Brokaw asked her -

“Senator Obama saying the question of when life begins is above his pay grade, whether you're looking at it scientifically or theologically. If he were to come to you and say, "Help me out here, Madame Speaker. When does life begin?" what would you tell him? “

Her reply was –

“I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time. And what I know is, over the centuries, the doctors of the church have not been able to make that definition. And Senator--St. Augustine said at three months. We don't know. The point is, is that it shouldn't have an impact on the woman's right to choose. Roe v. Wade talks about very clear definitions of when the child--first trimester, certain considerations; second trimester; not so third trimester. There's very clear distinctions. This isn't about abortion on demand, it's about a careful, careful consideration of all factors and--to--that a woman has to make with her doctor and her god. And so I don't think anybody can tell you when life begins, human life begins. As I say, the Catholic Church for centuries has been discussing this, and there are those who've decided...”

Her remarks should be of great concern to all Catholics. House Speaker Pelosi has done one of two things. Either she has spoken from extreme ignorance of Catholic faith or she purposely lied. If she has done the later than I believe she has committed an evil act, basically leading people to believe that the Catholic Church believes in abortion.

I also hope that by now you have heard the remarks made by Senator Barack Obama concerning his actions about the Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act (BAIPA), when he was a State Senator. (BAIPA) basically states -

“…that any baby that has been born alive is to be legally considered a person. As such, she or he would automatically be granted full protection under the U.S. Constitution. Other existing laws require that newborns must receive medical attention as needed. Killing a born-alive infant would be considered murder.”

To sum it up and to put it bluntly, Senator Barack Obama opposed this bill and killed it three times as an Illinois State Senator. He basically believes that if a child is born due to a botched abortion, the wishes of the mother should take precedence and that the child should die. That is murder!

This is the reason non-Catholics hold a dim view of Catholics and the Catholic faith. When non-Catholics hear an “ardent” Catholic state that the church teaches that life does not begin at conception, there is no doubt all Catholics suffer from such blatant disregard of Church teachings. The majority of American citizens know that prominent politicians such as Edward Kennedy, John Kerry, and Nancy Pelosi are Catholics. Moreover, while Senator Barack Obama is a non-Catholic, the support he has from these prominent Catholic politicians does not place our faith in a good light.

Would it be too much to ask you to speak about her statements, her support for infanticide, and her attempt to mislead citizens concerning the Catholic faith.

Respectfully,

Consider that the

USCCB

the

Cardinal Archbishop of New York
Cardinal Archbishop of Philadelphia
Archbishop of Washington DC
Archbishop of Denver

all issued statements to correct and redress the falsehoods about Catholic doctrine on the beginning of human life stated on network television pro-abortion Catholic Speaker of the House of Representatives.

I cannot imagine this would have happened even two years ago.

I just wish Nancy's faith was Islam... It would be more in line with her politics and lies.

Plus they still have stoning... as a punishment for going outside the fold.

BTTT — there is a pamplet available for $1.00 from the USCCB. Voting Guidelines and Issues — something like that for a title.
