"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 Senator--St. Augustine said at three months. We don't know. The point is, is that it shouldn't have an impact on the woman's right to choose. Roe v. Wade talks about very clear definitions of when the child--first trimester, certain considerations; second trimester; not so third trimester."
What a load of you-know-what.
...(note the Speaker masterfully overcomes her error in titling him "senator") wrote in the fifth century. Science, to understate it, has come a long way since then. You know, DNA and all that stuff?
However, if the Speaker would like to read more about Augustine, artificial contraception, and abortion, she might wish to pay a visit here.
Second, about that "not so third trimester"...
Hooey. The ruling allows abortions after the third trimester. Who's kidding who? This country has abortion on demand, period, end of story (and of millions of children's lives).
Third...did she say "child?"
Speaker Pelosi, didn't you get the memo? No "child" is killed...a "fetus is terminated." You gave yourself, and your comrades, away with that one.
You may be "ardent." You may be "practicing." But, tragically, you are no longer a Roman Catholic, as you have excommunicated yourself. I believe you are sincere (believe it or not) and I also believe you are enormously ignorant. Hie yourself to a priest, repent of your actions, and come back to the Faith. There are many who pray this will happen.
