Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has once again criticized the pro-life movement, calling its efforts to save unborn babies “sinful.”
Pelosi made the remarks during a “roundtable discussion,” which took place at the University of California in San Francisco to mark “Women’s Equality Day” last Friday.
“The fact that this is such an assault [sic] on women of color and…lower income families is just sinful. It’s sinful,” Pelosi said about abortion restrictions.

“It’s wrong that they would be able to say to women what they think women should be doing with their lives and their bodies. But it’s sinful, the injustice of it all.”
The House Speaker emphasized August 26 as a “day of action throughout the country because it’s Women’s Equality Day.” She added that the day was about “women saving our democracy.”
In her sometimes rambling and unclear speech, Pelosi referred to the natural state of pregnancy and of giving birth as “unimaginable pain.”
Referring to California’s commitment to abortion, Pelosi said, “We take pride in California’s leadership on reproductive health, as I mentioned. A beacon of hope and refuge in a time of widespread fear. Emboldened by the radical Supreme Court, extreme MAGA Republicans are inflicting unimaginable pain on women and their families.”
A self-described devout Catholic, Pelosi seemed to conflate contraception, the attempt to prevent the conception of a child, with abortion, the killing of the unborn child, and suggested pro-life Americans are inspired by a “crusade of punishment and control.”
“There’s a battle being waged, a crusade of punishment and control,” Pelosi declared. “It’s funny, they don’t like birth control, but they want to control women’s lives.”
