When a “Christian” News Service reporter decided to interrogate Nancy Pelosi on abortion, she mercilessly shut him down.
During her weekly press conference on Thursday, House Minority Leader Pelosi took a question about abortion from so-called “reporter” Sam Dorman of CNS News, who talked over real journalists to make sure Pelosi heard his question.
“Is an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver a human being?” he asked the mother of five children, thus confirming his status as nothing more than a right-wing troll.
But Pelosi, who has dealt with reporters like Dorman on previous occasions, didn’t want to waste any time dealing with him and his fake news agency, telling Dorman that she doesn’t want to take “ideological” questions.
However, Dorman made a pest of himself by daring to push his anti-abortion agenda further by trying to force Pelosi to respond.
Pushed beyond her patience, Pelosi promptly put Dorman in his place:
“Listen, I’m going to say something to you. I don’t know who you are and you are welcome to be here in freedom of this press. I am a devout, practicing Catholic. I’m a mother of five children. When my baby was born, my fifth child, my oldest was six. I think I know more about this subject than you, with all due respect. I do not intend to respond to your questions, which have no basis in what public policy is that we do here.”

The Constitution itself only gives citizenship to “all persons born” as stated in the 14th Amendment. Furthermore, the Bible itself makes reference to life beginning once a baby takes its first breath outside the womb. So not only is personhood defined by the civil law, it is already defined in the very religious text that conservative “Christians” want to see become the law of the land.
But seriously, why in the hell does an organization known as Christian News Service have press credentials in the first place? Clearly, CNS has a religious agenda that has no place in our secular government. And their apparent goal is to stalk politicians and annoy them relentlessly about why they aren’t lacing policies with more Christian beliefs, which, by the way, is prohibited by the Constitution. You know, that little thing both Thomas Jefferson and James Madison refer to as separation of church and state. So really, Christian News Service should probably not have access to lawmakers at all.
It’s also insulting that a male “reporter” would ask Pelosi such a question considering she is a mother who has way more experience on the topic of pregnancy and giving birth than Dorman ever will have.
In the end, however, this is about the right to choose. And last time I checked, women have a constitutional right to choose whether they want to be pregnant or not, and whether they want to give birth or not. Dorman will never have to make that choice because he is a man, no matter how small his penis is. And it must be even smaller now since Pelosi smacked him down in front of the real press.
