During a press conference Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) appealed to her “devout” Catholic faith and large family size to claim that taxpayer-funded abortion is matter of fairness for underprivileged women.

“Because it’s an issue of health of many women in America, especially those in lower income situations in different states, and it is something that has been a priority for many of us for a long time. As a devout Catholic and mother of five in six years, I feel that God blessed my husband and me with our beautiful family,” Pelosi commented.

“But it’s not up to me to dictate that’s what other people should do and it’s an issue of fairness and justice for poor women in our country,” she added.

The House speaker revealed her opinion on abortion in a similar way at a June briefing, when she dodged a reporter’s question about whether an unborn baby that is 15 weeks old, a time frame that’s been established as the cutoff for fetal viability in many court cases, qualifies as a human being.
