OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.
A reporter asked Nancy Pelosi if an unborn baby at 15 weeks of development would be considered a human being, based on a Mississippi law that bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
To which Pelosi replied with the fact that she’s a mother and therefore has ‘some standing on this issue’ then swiftly moves on to another reporter’s question.
Cool, cool… soooo, are you going to share exactly WHAT that standing is? Because I’m pretty sure Roe v. Wade enables women to NOT be mothers. Are you saying you have had far more abortions than born children?
Or, perhaps, virtuous Catholic Pelosi knows damn good and well what the correct answer is to that question.
Your quintessential politician, folks.
REPORTER: “Is an unborn baby at 15 weeks a human being?"
PELOSI: "Let me just say that I am a big supporter of Roe v. Wade. I am a mother of five children in six years. I think I have some standing on this issue.”pic.twitter.com/gil3ZeX6pp
