White House press secretary Jen Psaki scolded a reporter during Thursday’s briefing for asking how President Biden reconciled his Catholicism with his support for abortion.

“Why does [Biden] support abortion when his own Catholic faith teaches abortion is morally wrong?” EWTN’s Owen Jensen asked.

Psaki dismissed the question on the grounds that Jensen lacked the authority to comment on a “women’s rights issue.”

“I know you’ve never faced that choice,” Psaki said.

“I know you’ve never been pregnant,” she added.
