On Thursday, Nancy Pelosi praised the late Congressman John Lewis for leading a “beautiful and saintly life” despite the former congressman supporting the brutal slaughter of children in the womb through abortion.
Life News reports:
CNS News reports Pelosi honored the former congressman ahead of a planned delegation to San Diego on July 17 for the christening of the U.S. Navy Ship John Lewis.
“As House Speaker, I am deeply honored to lead this Congressional delegation of many friends of our beloved late Congressman John Lewis to honor his beautiful and saintly life,” she said in a statement.
“John Lewis was a warrior for freedom and, as a titan of the civil rights movement, his courage and goodness helped transform our nation,” Pelosi continued. “In the halls of the Capitol, he was fearless in his pursuit of a more perfect union, whether fighting to defend voting rights, end anti-LGBTQ discrimination or respect the dignity and worth of every person.”
But neither Lewis nor Pelosi respect the dignity and worth of unborn babies, who are unique, living, irreplaceable human beings from the moment of conception. Every year, nearly 1 million unborn babies are killed in elective abortions in the U.S.
Before departing Congress, Lewis voted against the partial-birth abortion ban, refused to sign onto the petition to put the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act on the floor for a vote, and he had a 100% rating from the pro-abortion up-to-birth group NARAL.
