(PresidentialInsider.com)- In her weekly press conference last week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi dodged a question about the recent spate of attacks on crisis pregnancy centers that erupted after the leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion on the Dodds case in early May.
Republican lawmakers have urged Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate the targeted vandalism and arson as acts of domestic terrorism.
However, the official at the Justice Department who would likely head up such an investigation, Civil Rights division chief Kristen Clarke, has a long history of attacking crisis pregnancy centers as “harmful” and “predatory.” So what are the odds this DOJ will lift a finger?
When asked about the attacks on the centers last Thursday, Speaker Pelosi declined to condemn the attacks, choosing instead to offer her support for abortion and her credentials as a “very Catholic person.”
Pelosi reiterated that women have “a right to choose.” She argued that abortion should be left up to the woman, her doctor, her family, “and her God.” She claimed “this talk of politicizing all of this” wasn’t right and was unique to the United States. She suggested other “very Catholic countries” like Ireland, Mexico, and Italy have expanded “a woman’s right to choose,” adding that she is “a very Catholic person” and she thinks women should have the right to make their own decisions.
So does that mean it’s okay for pro-abortion terrorists to firebomb crisis pregnancy centers? Shouldn’t a “very Catholic person” come down on the side that such actions are wrong?
Pelosi is pressed on whether Democrat rhetoric is fueling attacks on crisis pregnancy centers.
She refuses to condemn attacks – and says "politicizing all of this is uniquely American."

It should concern you that both Democrat lawmakers and this White House refuse to speak out against these kinds of terror tactics when they come from people with whom they agree.
