Minority House leader Nancy Pelosi’s latest shill for Planned Parenthood’s abortion industry, in the face of illegal baby organ harvesting and trafficking allegations, came suddenly when asked by a reporter if she regards a baby with a liver and a heart as a “human being.”

“In reference to funding for Planned Parenthood: Is an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver a human being?” a reporter for CNS News asked Pelosi at a press conference today.
After squirming, the Democrat leader, who was apparently unfamiliar with the reporter, answers she would not be taking “ideological questions,” and states the fact that she has five children meant she somehow “know[s] more about this subject than you.”
From CNS News:
Pelosi responded: “Why don’t you take your ideological questions–I don’t, I don’t have—”
CNSNews.com asked: “If it’s not a human being, what species is it?”
Pelosi said: “No, listen, I want to say something to you. I don’t know who you are and you’re welcome to be here, freedom of this press. I am a devout practicing Catholic, a mother of five children. When my baby was born, my fifth child, my oldest child was six years old. I think I know more about this subject than you, with all due respect.”
CNSNews.com asked: “So it’s not a human being, then?”
Pelosi said: “And I do not intend to respond to your questions, which have no basis in what public policy is that we do here.”
During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday, Pelosi admitted she had never seen any of the undercover Planned Parenthood sting videos, but nevertheless toed the progressive liberal Democrat line in defending the organization when asked how she reconciles Pope Francis’ pro-life stance with her own pro-abortion views.
Despite not viewing the footage, Pelosi asserted the Center for Medical Progress should be investigated regarding how they “obtained” and “doctored” the videos, even though they’ve released hours of completely unedited footage.
On Tuesday, an independent forensic analysis also found the videos to be “authentic and show no evidence of manipulation or editing.”
