House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi was quick to criticize President Donald Trump’s comments referring to MS-13 members as “animals,” pointing to the “spark of divinity in every person.” It’s a spark that doesn’t ignite similar comments from Pelosi when questioned about the unborn, or her support for taxpayer dollars going to abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
Last week Pelosi said we "believe that...there's a spark of divinity in every person": We believe that -- some of us who are attracted to the political arena, to government and public service -- that we're all God's children, there's a spark of divinity in every person on Earth, and that we all have to recognize that, as we respect the dignity and worth of every person, and as we recognize our responsibilities with that spark of divinity within us.”
In October of 2015 she was asked: “In reference to funding for Planned Parenthood: Is an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver a human being?” Pelosi chose to avoid the question.
“And I do not intend to respond to your questions, which have no basis in what public policy is that we do here,” Pelosi said.
At no point did she mention the “spark of divinity.”
Respecting the “dignity and worth of every person” is important enough for her to mention at her press conference when criticizing the president on his comments about MS-13, but not when talking about a child in the womb.
Nice priorities, Nancy. Real nice.
