PELOSI: We believe, some of us that are attracted to the political arena, to government and public service, that weâ€™re all Godâ€™s children.Â Thereâ€™s a spark of divinity in every person on earth and that we all have to recognize that. as we respect the dignity and worth of every person.Â And as we recognize our responsibilities with that spark of divinity within us. [Emphasis added]
And so when the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, â€˜These arenâ€™t people, these are animals,â€™ you have to wonder: Does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?Â â€˜These are not people, these are animals.â€™ The president of the United States. [Emphasis added]
This seems quite odd coming from a supporter of Roe V Wade and abortion which has allowed for millions of innocent babies to be slaughtered.
Here is a statement from her website on Roe V Wade
“Forty-five years ago, the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade affirmed a bedrock principle: that reproductive rights must be protected; that the right to privacy must be preserved; and that a woman’s health decisions must be her own, in consultation with her family, her physician and her faith.Â
“Unfortunately, over the last several years, the rights protected by Roe v. Wade have been under assault by Congressional Republicans. Republicans have waged war on a woman’s fundamental right to choose and have attempted to insert themselves into the most personal and private health decisions. Last year, and just this weekend, millions of women around the country marched in solidarity to remind Republicans that we will not be silenced and we will not allow our rights or the progress we have made to be ripped away.Â
“On this anniversary, sustained by the strength and determination of these brave American women, Democrats renew our vow to stand strong to defend reproductive choice and work toward a comprehensive approach to reproductive health care. Together, we can safeguard a woman’s right to choose and we can reduce the number of unintended pregnancies at home and around the world with critical and affordable family planning services. Democrats will continue to work to build on the legacy of Roe v. Wade and protect the rights of women across the country.”
