Seen on the internet: Nancy Pelosi on abortion and free will

Pelosi:

“We are all endowed with a free will and a responsibility to answer for our actions,” she continues. “And that women should have that opportunity to exercise their free will.”

Informed reader’s comment:

She misses the issue ENTIRELY and obviously does not take her Catholic faith seriously enough to think deeply about this issue (or, she’s just plain dumb). Using Speaker Pelosi’s reading, the Catholic Church cannot come out against for example, rape, murder or torture (or, for that matter, sexual abuse of children by Priests or others) because that would impinge upon the ‘free will’ of the rapist, murderer, torturer or abuser.

With abortion, the issue is not “free will”. The issue is whether abortion is murder.

If its murder, how can the Catholic Church, or any religion, leave it up to one’s “free will?”

Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States of America, folks!
