Nancy Pelosi Takes Hypocritical Stances on Abortion and Gun Control

( – Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says she wants to protect America’s children. That’s a noble aim — but, looking at the details, it turns out she’s a little selective about what she wants to protect them from. We can all agree that shooting your kids is wrong, but Pelosi seems to think that aborting them instead is just fine.

On June 8, the anti-gun group Everytown for Gun Safety ran its annual “Wear Orange Weekend,” to draw attention to its cause. Pelosi decided to give the event a boost and posted a message on X (formerly Twitter) calling for a ban on so-called “assault weapons,” a meaningless category that seems to be defined more by what guns look like than how dangerous they are. Pelosi introduced her message by saying “No one’s political survival is more important than our children’s survival.”

Now the veteran Democrat is facing accusations of hypocrisy from pro-life advocates because her concern for children only seems to go as far as guns. When it comes to abortion, which kills many more children than guns every year, Pelosi isn’t just silent — she’s a loud advocate for the other side. In fact, despite claiming to be a devout Catholic, the Italian-American lawmaker has a 100% pro-abortion voting record.

Pelosi angrily denies any conflict between her politics and her religion, but the Catholic church seems to have mixed feelings about her. She was supposedly blessed by her fellow liberal Pope Francis at the Vatican in June 2022, but that closely followed a well-publicized scandal where Salvatore Cordileone, the Archbishop of San Francisco, banned her from receiving communion in her home city. In an official notification to Pelosi, Cordileone told her she would be barred from communion until she ended her “advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion,” confessed to “this grave sin” and did penance. It looks like the archbishop knows what the biggest threat to American children is.
