Nancy Pelosi: Pro-Lifers are “Dumb” For Believing Life Begins at Conception

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 3/28/14 12:29 PM

Never mind that science has confirmed for some time that human life begins at conception and the union of sperm and egg creates a unique human being with a DNA code that matches no one else ever conceived.

Nancy Pelosi believes pro-life advocates who think human life starts at conception are just “dumb.”

Politico has the quote:

nancypelosipic2 At Planned Parenthood’s annual gala last night, attendees and your PULSEr stopped laughing at comedian and emcee Tig Notaro just long enough to watch Nancy Pelosi receive the Margaret Sanger award for her work defending abortion rights. In her acceptance speech, Pelosi slammed abortion opponents, especially criticized the “personhood” laws some of them are pushing and said the struggle for reproductive rights will continue whatever SCOTUS decides on the contraception mandate.

–”When you see how closed their minds are or oblivious or whatever it is — dumb — then you know what the fight is about,” Pelosi said. “Whatever happens with the court…we must remember these battles will not be the end of the fight,” she added. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was also awarded.

Here’s how Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List reacted, in an email to LifeNews:

Last night, Nancy Pelosi accepted Planned Parenthood’s highest honor – the Margaret Sanger Award – at their annual gala. Now, that’s enough to make most people’s blood boil.

Sanger – the founder of Planned Parenthood – was a racist eugenicist who called African Americans, immigrants and the poor “human weeds,” “reckless breeders,” “spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”

But wait until you read this – Politico is reporting that, in accepting the award, Pelosi called pro-lifers “dumb,” “closed-minded,” and “oblivious.” I don’t know how you feel right now after reading this, but frankly, I think pro-lifers should take these insults as a badge of honor.

Pelosi knows that abortion on-demand is absolutely indefensible, so she’s resorted to elementary school name-calling.

How is it “dumb” that we accept the scientific fact that life begins at conception?

And how is it “close-minded” that we want to protect women when study after study shows just how much abortion hurts women?

The truth is, I think we got under Nancy Pelosi’s skin yesterday.

You see, pro-lifers across the country participated in a TweetFest social media campaign to educate Nancy Pelosi about Margaret Sanger’s hateful legacy.

She was a well known eugenicist who thought birth control and abortion were the best way to “create a race of thoroughbreds.” Sanger believed in forced sterilization of “the feeble minded,” and said that “the most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

We presented Nancy Pelosi with facts about Margaret Sanger, and instead of attempting to defend the indefensible, she resorted to name calling instead.

I believe in science...unless it prevents me from cutting up a human in the womb and sucking the parts out into a medical waste bag because it may cut into my me time.

Calling her a runt (rhymes with) would be paying her a complement.

Perhaps she’d like to explain her concept of human life to the Pope, and most particularly her bishop, who ought to have excommunicated this ungodly woman decades ago.

Well obviously for her, conception had not a thing to do with intelligence and she seems determined to prove it repeatedly.

Was it a pro-life thread here or I heard it elsewhere, Margaret Sanger said life began at conception too.

Something like this:

“Margaret Sanger, a founder of Planned Parenthood, wrote in her autobiography that an abortion at any stage is the taking of a human life.”

- See more at: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/penny-starr/planned-parenthood-founder-abortion-no-matter-how-earlyit-was-taking-life#sthash.CMYp8eK9.dpuf

You can’t make up what the Democrats say, Pelosi herself and to her credit has had a number of children I understand, she knows better.

“Conceiving” is life. After all these trials and errors between mate competitions, selections, seasons and sperm counts, they destroy the child.

Good! We need more of this kind of talk! Nancy Pelosi’s incoherent, and depraved outlook on everything should remind us every day to mobilize in droves this November to prevent her from, once again, reuniting with the Speaker’s gavel.

Remember the first two years of the Obama presidency, and consider how much more damage can be done even after all of the damage that has already been done.

Again, I hope she keeps up this kind of talk to at least motivate us (and mostly the ones who decided to stay home 2 years ago) to go to the polls.

Gee ... the same could be said of the pro-choicers who refuse to see the science behind fetal development. By the time a woman has an abortion, that BABY has arms, legs, fingers, eyes, heartbeat, its own blood type, DNA, etc.

Closed minds.

Does that mean a fertilized egg is nothing more than a collection of chemicals undergoing actions and reactions? There is no indication of life in a cell that demonstrates kinetics and complex processes stand-alone, that science to this day still do not fully understand?

Nancy needs to go back to 4th grade science class.

Every day I am reminded that the people we choose to be our representatives are mind-numbingly stupid. These are people who, if they were out in public, would not be able to cross the street without getting hit by a vehicle.

They deserve no respect for they have not earned it. I do not use their titles and use first names only. Those, like Nancy and Joe, I preface with “child molester”.

It shows just how many voters in our country have truly lost their way, or are too clueless or incompetent to have the right to vote.

Until that changes we will keep seeing these types of inferior elected officials.

The best we can hope for, I suppose, is to keep their numbers to a minimum.
