Skip to comments.Nancy Pelosi backs Obama's birth control policy
Posted on 02/11/2012 7:13:53 AM PST by SmithL
President Obama, in a compromise aimed to quell criticism from church leaders and conservatives, said Friday that he will allow Catholic institutions in California and across the nation to opt out of a federal requirement that religious-based employers provide free birth control to their employees.
The move, which would revise a Health and Human Services Department rule by allowing those employees access to free birth control via their employers' insurance companies, sparked mostly positive reaction from women's and religious organizations as well as California Democrats meeting this weekend in San Diego.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a practicing Catholic and mother of five, strongly praised Obama for "showing leadership in a very unifying way," and "for his ongoing commitment to women's health."

Pelosi, a practicing Catholic...Needs more practice.
Funny how all the people who are for abortion are already born.
Well isn’t that nice of the Dick-tater! By what right does this asshole graciously allow us to live? He has to go NOW! Not in November!
Only in San Francisco can reality be warped this far.
Anyone who has attained the position of Speaker of the House, and then tells the American people in all seriousness that we must pass the bill so we can find out whats in it, is not someone that American voters should ever take seriously about anything.
These are just labels used by the lying liberal media to put lipstick on the pig.
It would be news if she was against it.
Must be a slow news day or Pelosi just likes seeing her name in the local rag.
WE are damned sure finding out what is in it, and it aint pretty.
We need to send anyone who voted Aye on that Bill home from Congress this year.
I don’t know who wrote this bill, I don’t think anyone does.
Whoever wrote it placed all of our lives in the hands of Government. They own us now. Lock,Stock, and barrel.
Nancy Pelosi: an abortion that lived...and is still an abortion.
I stealing from a co-Freeper: CINO
"In what way is this unifying, Ms Pelosi?" would be my follow-up question...but then, it is the Gay Bay Chronicle.
Pelosi told all of the liberals to vote for Obamacare or else. What a surprise to her that the Catholic Church is not bowing down to her wishes. Poor Nancy, she isn’t ruling the church.
If the Catholic Church does not start excommunicate these politicians over this issue, then the Church is hopelessly lost and has succumbed to the darkness.
Employers provide free birth control to their employees.
Democrats toss the word free around when it comes to other peoples money.When the feds give you something FREE your not free your only more in debt.
Agree completely, but don’t hold your breath. If they’ll give Ted Kennedy an “annulment” after 30+ years of marriage and continually provide communion to these evil abortion-supporting scum, they’ll turn a blind eye to this latest egregious slap in the face of the faithful. I guess the principle of “leading by example” is as outdated to the Catholic hierarchy as the Constitution and the rule of law are to the socialist-loving demonrat. Unbelievable...
How can this woman, (or anybody for that matter,) call herself a practicing Catholic? She is a vain, selfish, lying, scheming, thieving, greedy, pro-murder, pro-homosexual madwoman who lives in her own reality in some alternate universe where evil is good, wrong is right, and truth is whatever heretical fantasy she is living in at the moment.
WHY hasn’t she been excommunicated?
THAT, my friend, is THE comment of the month! I plan to make this my stock response in all future discussions on abortion.
