4,676,300 Unborn American Babies Murdered In Pelosi's First Speakership!
She is for it.
When she first became speaker in 2007, Pelosi put out a statement celebrating the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that declared the killing of an unborn child a "right."
"Roe v. Wade is based on a woman's fundamental right to privacy, a value that all Americans cherish," Pelosi said then. "It established that decisions about whether to have a child do not and should not rest with the government."
"As I have throughout my time in Congress, I will continue to work to ensure a woman's right to choose," she said.
That same year, in Gonzales v. Carhart, the Supreme Court upheld a federal statute prohibiting late-term abortion. In that opinion, the court quoted the testimony of a nurse who had witnessed one of these procedures.
The doctor, this nurse testified, "went in with forceps and grabbed the baby's legs and pulled them down into the birth canal."
"Then he delivered the baby's body and the arms -- everything but the head," she said.
"The baby's little fingers were clasping and unclasping, and his little feet were kicking," the nurse testified. "Then the doctor stuck the scissors in the back of his head, and the baby's arms jerked out, like a startle reaction, like a flinch, like a baby does when he thinks he is going to fall."
"The doctor opened up the scissors, stuck a high-powered suction tube into the opening, and sucked the baby's brains out," she said.
"He threw the baby in a pan," she said, "along with the placenta and the instruments he had just used."
