Pelosi Statements on Abortion Run Afoul of Conservatives and LGBTQ Mob

'Sometimes, I think they need a session in birds and the bees for some of the kinds of statements that they make...'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., proclaimed that any restriction of abortion, after decades of failed policy using abortion as a contraceptive, would be a radical blow to women’s rights.

“The constitutional right to an abortion has been repeatedly affirmed,” said Pelosi, “and any failure to fully strike down the Mississippi ban would seriously erode the legitimacy of the Court, as the Court itself warned in its ruling in Casey, and question its commitment to the rule of law itself.”

How exactly the court would violate the Constitution, by following the Constitution is unclear.

Subsequently, Pelosi has said that only women who have had children through natural birth can decide the issue of abortion in America.

“Sometimes, I think they need a session in birds and the bees for some of the kinds of statements that they make,” Pelosi said about the Supreme Court justices according to SFGate.com.

“I say that as a mother of five — six years and one week, five children,” she said, “as I say to my colleague, when you have five children in six years and one week, we can discuss this issue.”

Pelosi’s comments seemed to rule out straight men, as well as gay, lesbian and transsexual people, who choose not to– or can not– reproduce, from having any sort of role in the discussion about abortion in the United States, confining the decision-makers just to biological women who have given birth.

At issue is a Mississippi state ban on abortion after 15 weeks that progressives worry will be upheld by the Supreme Court.

“In order to rule in favor of the Mississippi law, allowing a ban on abortion after 15 weeks, the Supreme Court would naturally have to overturn Roe [vs. Wade], which allowed abortions until even later in pregnancy — until about 24 weeks’ gestation,” reported National Review.

If Roe vs. Wade is overturned, then the issue of abortion would be open to be fought in all 50 states.
