Next week, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America will present House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award. The award is the group’s “highest honor” and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics. Planned Parenthood is the nation's leading abortion provider, having performed 327,166 of the procedures in 2012, according to its latest annual report. Pelosi, a Catholic, will receive the Margaret Sanger Award at the PPFA’s annual gala in Washington, D.C. on Mar. 27. She is being honored, according to PPFA, because of her “leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement over the course of her career.” - See more at:
My Take – Isn’t this the woman who thinks she’s a devout Catholic? Yet, “Pelosi has been repeatedly at odds with the Catholic Church, in which she claims membership, over the issue of abortion. She once called on a Catholic saint to help her and her pro-abortion colleague pass a Senate health care bill that contains massive abortion funding. Not only did Pelosi upset pro-life Catholics in so doing, but she got the date wrong concerning the saint she mentioned.”
Perhaps I’ve gotten the whole thing wrong. It’s my impression abortion is considered a mortal sin by the church, yet she and Joe Biden, another strong abortion supporter, received communion in Rome. Perhaps I’m alone in wondering what it is a person has to do for the church to make the decision to forbid communion and impose excommunication. Whatever reasons may exist – it’s apparent supporting the murder of millions of innocent unborn isn’t among them. And now she accepts an award from an organization that is responsible for millions of murders.
