Catholic Vote posted today that she had a pow-wow yesterday with pro-abort bloggers in an effort to derail the pro-life initiatives underway in the House, under its current conservative leadership. While she acknowledges that she can't stop the House from passing these measures, she wants to make life issues "too hot to handle" to lessen chances of passage in the Senate. Read the Washington Post article here.
She made this statement regarding pro-life beliefs, from her pro-baby-murder vantage point. Speaking of us, she says, (quoting from the Post) "They are at a different philosophical place," she said, characterizing their view as: "all engagement has to result in a child." Pelosi noted that contraception and family planning is "not consistent with their belief that it's all about procreation." It's true that we do acknowledge God's plan for sexuality as having both a unitative and procreative aspect, and that neither of these can be removed. She ackowledges her dissent from Catholic teaching regarding morality.
Then she made this key statement, again contrasting pro-life people with pro-abortion people. "We don't have a set of shared values." Guess what? She's right! And it's high time that our Catholic bishops acknowledge that obvious fact! Enough of this "can't we all just get along", "kinder, gentler" bullshit! Babies are being murdered while too many namby-pamby folks cow at the thought of opposition, let alone struggle.
The gauntlet has been thrown yet again. Let's rise to the challenge. Support the House's initiatives. Get out in front of an abortion mill and offer Christian witness (hint: check out the Kick Out Carhart link on the right side bar). These pro-aborts are spoiling for a knock-down-drag-out. Let's not disappoint them!
