In a press conference on Thursday, “devout Catholic” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) responded to the Archbishop of San Francisco’s statement that the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) is “nothing more than child sacrifice” and that he calls on Catholics to pray for the bill to vanquish.

As Rebecca reported , the House plans to vote on WPHA soon in an effort to overturn state legislation that restricts abortion access before the 24-week threshold in pregnancy. Namely, Texas’ abortion law, S.B. 8, which went in effect Sept. 1 and was upheld by the Supreme Court, was a catalyst to railroad this bill into law.
S.B. 8, the “heartbeat” law, outlaws abortion once fetal cardiac activity is detected at roughly six weeks […]
