What is wrong with you Catholics? Why are ya’ll willing, as Nancy Pelosi claims, to let women die because of ” this conscience thing “?

Catholic health-care providers in particular have long said they’d have to go out of business without the conscience protections that Pelosi says amount to letting hospitals “say to a woman, ‘I’m sorry you could die’ if you don’t get an abortion.” Those who dispute that characterization “may not like the language,’’ she said, “but the truth is what I said. I’m a devout Catholic and I honor my faith and love it .?.?. but they have this conscience thing’’ that she insists put women at physical risk, although Catholic providers strongly disagree.

The Pelosi model of Catholicism: devout, faith-honoring, and conscience-free.
