Facts don’t matter.
August 24, 2008
On Meet the Press this morning, Tom Brokaw asked Democrat Nancy Pelosi when life begins. Her response:
“I would say that as an ardent practicing Catholic this is an issue that I have studied for a long time, and what I know is over the centuries the doctors of the Church have not been able to make that definition. And St. Augustine said three months. We don’t know. The point is it that it shouldn’t have an impact on a woman’s right to chose.”
Well, of course, why should the minor detail of whether the baby is alive have any “impact on a woman’s right [sic] to choose.”
