Pelosi award from world's largest abortion provider

It has been announced that Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives in the U.S., who describes herself as a ‘devout Roman Catholic’, is to receive an ‘award’ from Planned Parenthood – which is probably the biggest provider and supporter of abortion in the entire world.

The National Director of American Life League’s STOPP Planned Parenthood project, has said:
‘The award is Planned Parenthood’s way of saying thank you for elevating the abortion machine that is Planned Parenthood to a level of government funding never before imagined, through the passage of the government health care takeover pushed so relentlessly by Pelosi. And she did it all while mocking God, claiming to be a devout Roman Catholic. Pelosi’s final award will await her at the end of her life, when the blood of millions of innocent babies will rise up from the ground to testify against her.’

As LifeSiteNews puts it, the Planned Parenthood award is being made to Speaker Pelosi
‘in recognition of her efforts in passing the federal health care legislation, and in particular for her help in ensuring that the Stupak abortion funding ban was not inserted in the bill. …In a statement, PP lauds Pelosi for having been “instrumental” in the passage of the federal health care bill, which was strenuously opposed by every major pro-life organization in the U.S., as well as the U.S. Catholic bishops, because of its abortion mandate. … Ironically, at the very height of the health care debate, even as the U.S. bishops were stepping up their efforts against the bill and its abortion funding, Pelosi publicly invoked one of the most prominent Catholic saints – St. Joseph, who is also revered by Catholics as “patron” of the unborn – to help pass the health care bill.’

Speaker Pelosi is a faithful follower of her master, President Barack Obama who is one of the most powerful proponents of abortion in the world.

I reported recently on an interview with Archbishop Raymond Burke and his words are particularly relevant here, when asked by an interviewer to comment on the fact that some of our politicians say that they leave their faith in the Church and do not allow it to affect their role as legislators. What do you say to a politician like this? Can they be Catholic and behave in this way?’ to which Archbishop Burke replied
‘No, it is not possible. How can you? Our faith is such that it informs every aspect of our life, we cannot bracket off some aspect of our life from the faith. … [W]hen we are talking, [...] about the natural moral law and, while it is certainly part of Catholic teaching it binds all persons. … You cannot be a devout Catholic and espouse these positions.
