Pelosi and abortion and the truth

On Sunday while speaking to Tom Brokaw, Nancy Pelosi said,
“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 St. Augustine said at three months. We don’t know.”
In an interview today, Catholic Archbishop Donald Wuerl said,
“The current teaching of the Catholic Church on human life and abortion is the same teaching as it was 2,000 years ago...From the beginning, the Catholic Church has respected the dignity of all human life from the moment of conception to natural death.”
Pelosi said she had studied this issue for a long time implying that she knew what she was talking about because she had personally studied it. And yet, what she told millions of Americans was completely, absolutely false!

This is worse than when Pelosi--a 20 year veteran of Congress--described herself as a Washington outsider! Has "truth" become so relative for Nancy Pelosi that she can no longer tell the difference between truth and blatant lies? Or does she just consider it OK to say anything she pleases as long as she thinks it will score political points?

UPDATE: Pelosi's lies have now been condemned by a Roman Catholic Cardinal as well. Read the rebuke in Hugh Hewitt's post on Townhall.

Didn't she also later say in that interview that even if the baby was considered a human being Abortion should be a right to women?

Yup, and Hitler slaughtering Jewish people was his right too.

Talk about wickedness and evil.

Nancy Pelosi is a liar.

It's absolutely stunning that she would say something so absolutely false with a straight face. She's not a practicing Catholic. She's trying to use faith as a means to power. This much is obvious. It drives me crazy that she tried to use St. Augustine to justify her pro-murder stance.

Any genuine "ardent, practicing Catholic" would likely feel much the same about Nancy claiming to be one as I feel about Fred Phelps of Westboro "Baptist" Church claiming to be a Baptist.
