[CINO] Catholic Pelosi to Receive Planned Parenthood Award for Stopping Stupak Abortion Funding Ban

Catholic Pelosi to Receive Planned Parenthood Award for Stopping Stupak Abortion Funding Ban

By John Jalsevac

July 15, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a self-professed devout Catholic, will receive an award from abortion giant Planned Parenthood at a reception Thursday evening. The award will be given in recognition of her efforts in passing the federal health care legislation, and, in particular, for her help in ensuring that the Stupak abortion funding ban was not inserted in the bill.

A spokesperson for Planned Parenthood confirmed with LifeSiteNews.com that Pelosi would be receiving the Champion for Women's Health award, which recognizes "efforts to support women and their reproductive health."

Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), and Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) will also receive the award.

In a statement, PP lauds Pelosi for having been “instrumental” in the passage of the federal health care bill, which was strenuously opposed by every major pro-life organization in the U.S., as well as the U.S. Catholic bishops, because of its abortion mandate. The statment also praises Pelosi for having "led her female colleagues in Congress as they stood strong against attempts to insert the Stupak abortion ban into the bill." 

“With their steadfast commitment to passing health care reform and making sure that women will be able to get the health care they need, the women leaders we honor today set the course to change the lives of millions of women for generations to come,” said PP President Cecile Richards.

While Pelosi and the Obama administration have repeatedly claimed that the health care law would not fund abortion, pro-life groups have warned that such claims are clearly contradicted by the facts. They have also warned that the last-minute Executive Order (EO) issued by Obama in exchange for the votes of the few remaining “pro-life” Democrats led by Bart Stupak does little more than “reiterate” what is already in the bill.

Immediately after the bill was passed in March Richards issued a statement dismissing the EO as a “symbolic” gesture, and announcing that “monumental progress” had been made in strengthening “women’s health.”

"The award is Planned Parenthood's way of saying thank you for elevating the abortion machine that is Planned Parenthood to a level of government funding never before imagined, through the passage of the government health care takeover pushed so relentlessly by Pelosi," Rita Diller, National Director of American Life League's STOPP Planned Parenthood project, told LifeSiteNews.com.

"And she did it all while mocking God, claiming to be a devout Roman Catholic. Pelosi's final award will await her at the end of her life, when the blood of millions of innocent babies will rise up from the ground to testify against her."

Ironically, at the very height of the health care debate, even as the U.S. bishops were stepping up their efforts against the bill and its abortion funding, Pelosi publicly invoked one of the most prominent Catholic saints – St. Joseph, who is also revered by Catholics as “patron” of the unborn - to help pass the health care bill.

"Today is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker," Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill in March. "It's a day where we remember and pray to St. Joseph to benefit the workers of America, and that's exactly what our health care bill will do."

It was not the first time that Pelosi has attempted to reconcile her pro-abortion views with her professed faith. During a now infamous interview on Meet the Press in 2008, Pelosi was asked by the interviewer, "When does life begin?"

Pelosi responded by sidestepping the question, appealing to her Catholic faith as the source of her uncertainty.

"I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time," she said.  "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."

Pelosi then said that in her view the question of when life begins is a non-issue in the debate on abortion.

"Nancy Pelosi has proven herself time and time again an enemy of the preborn, an enemy of human rights and an enemy of women's health," said Diller. "When she accepts this award tonight from Planned Parenthood for her commitment to abortion rights,  Pelosi will also be accepting moral culpability for her bigoted denial of basic human rights and the murder of millions of human beings. We will continue to pray for Rep. Pelosi while we oppose her murderous actions every step of the way."

Maybe the good news is that she will not be Speaker of the House after the November elections.

Everything Pelosi and the Obama administration have claimed is clearly contradicted by the facts.

Most of the Catholic nuns, priests, and even the bishop in her district probably voted for her. What a bunch of frauds. Don’t hold your breath waiting for her to be excommunicated.

I have no doubt that you are right. A Catholic friend of my son’s told me that he voted for Obama. When I spoke about the abortion issue, he said that, “he would pray for Obama.” Unfortunately, I couldn’t say what I would like to have said and that is, “we had a choice in the election to choose a man who was pro-life, so voting for someone who supports and who actually signs into law abortion legislation makes you just as guilty as Obama.”

Have black Americans figured out that most Planned Parenthood locations are in black neighborhoods? Nothing like having a political party such as the Democrats control the size of a population of a particular race.

Apparently, the Executive Order Obama signed in order to get the holdout Dems to pass the bill, did not cover against the “high risk” insurance pools? See the thread on today’s Glenn Beck show or keyword ‘abortion’.

Something like 17 million (?) is already headed for Pennsylvania to build a huge abortion mill. All abortions will be covered by tax payer dollars through the health care bill. Yes, tax payer paid abortion IS in the death care bill. Oboma lied.
New Mexico is also getting a few million to build the same type of abortion factory.

They're so blinded by their politics, they don't want to see it.

IF this abortion bill cannot be changed, we can only hope for two things. They have a change of heart, or the left aborts itself out of existence.

Remember when Dr. Kildare, Ben Casy, and other Med. shows ran on TV? There would be an episode where a Mother was in danger of having a ‘’breach birth’’ and the star Dr. had a new procedure which they hoped would help to turn the baby around so she would have a normal birth? Partial birth abortion is nothing more than inducing a ‘’breach birth’’, then killing the baby. And PP gives awards for it!!!

“opposed by every major pro-life organization in the U.S., as well as the U.S. Catholic bishops,”

And some are still saying the bishops wanted this bill.

The problem is that PA, NM, and other states could refuse the money.

They don’t. The states are complicit. Conservatives could stop it at the state level. Where are our state orgs?

"... change the lives of millions of women for generations to come," said PP President Cecile Richards.

Somehow I doubt the "millions of women" she has in mind include the millions of female babies who'll never have a chance at life at all.

Back in the 1920's, Margaret Sanger was behind the Harlem Project, which was meant to reduce the black population in Harlem.

Margaret Sanger is the Founder of Planned Parenthood who is idolized by folks like Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.

Margaret Sanger was also quite the racist...

In her book, Pivot of Civilization, she stated that it should be the goal of the United States to eliminate all NEGROES, CATHOLICS, and INDIANS (native American)...

You wrote that your former Catholic Church was:

St. Gerard Majella, Des Peres, MO

This is somewhat ironic, as Saint Gerard Majella is the patron saint for pregnant women, and patron saint of the prolife movement.

The pastor of the church could, on one Sunday, recognize the presence of the congresswoman. Then he could start talking about the evil of abortion.

Pope John Paul II did the same time with (I think) Cardinal Mahoney and some Bishops from California, Oregon, and Washington. Pope John Paul II used the occasion of the visit to speak out against abortion -- a gentle reminder (well maybe not so gentle reminder) -- that Cardinal Mahoney and these bishops failed to speak out against abortion...

Talk to the pastor. Talk to the pro-life group or Knights of Columbus of the parish, and try to get support for the Pastor doing this...

“...Time for the Bishop of Sacramento to ex-communicate the witch, I mean, Speaker of the House...”

In November, the voters will excommunicate her from the Speaker of the House seat. Then it will be the good Bishop’s move, if he doesn’t do it before November.
