Pelosi Calls Pro-Lifers ‘Dumb’ While Accepting Margaret Sanger Award at Planned Parenthood Gala

Pelosi pdNEW YORK — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi called pro-lifers ‘dumb’ during her acceptance speech this week as she received the Margaret Sanger Award from the nation’s largest abortion provider.

“When you see how closed their minds are or oblivious or whatever it is—dumb—then you know what the fight is about,” Pelosi declared on Thursday at Planned Parenthood’s annual gala. “Whatever happens with the court …we must remember these battles will not be the end of the fight.”

Pelosi was speaking about the personhood laws that have been presented in various states and the corporate opposition to the Obamacare abortion pill mandate.

As previously reported, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America recognized Pelosi with the Margaret Sanger Award for “her leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement over the course of her career.” Sanger founded Planned Parenthood in 1921, which was originally known as the American Birth Control League. She later changed the name as some found it offensive.

“We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all,” Sanger once said, who was reportedly a staunch advocate of eugenics. “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

Sanger was also the publisher of the newspaper The Woman Rebel, which she subtitled “No Gods, no masters.”

“I accept this honor tonight on behalf of my colleagues, who have fought the fight for and with you,” Pelosi said upon receipt of the award. “The aim of smart public policy in our country is to advocate for opportunity and freedom—the opportunity to lead healthy lives and the freedom of Americans to make their own choices.”

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was also present at the gala, receiving the Planned Parenthood Global Citizen Award, as well as “minister” William Barber II, who leads a homosexual advocacy and social justice organization called “Moral Mondays” in North Carolina.

“We must build a movement knowing that those against Planned Parenthood are also against voting rights, labor rights, and immigration reform,” Barber told those gathered. “The same people trying to gut voting rights are the same people trying to remove southern states from [Medicaid] coverage, and are the same people trying to remove women’s rights. We are stronger together when we fight these injustices together.”

Bradley Bredeweg of the ABC Family show The Fosters, a sitcom that centers on children being raised by lesbians, also spoke at the event.

“Our family represents the new, loving and modern family,” he stated. “Two incredibly smart and passionate biracial lesbian women raising a family made up of a multicultural mix of biological, adopted, and foster kids. A family that is allowed to make their own choices, to decide what is best for their own family. With all of the prejudice and discrimination that we still have to fight as gays and lesbians, as women, as different races—the last thing we should be fighting for are our own bodies.”

Others present at Planned Parenthood’s gala included singer Mavis Staples, comedian Tig Notaro and BET’s Vice President of Public Affairs Sonya Lockett.

    The Abortion Movement may be celebrating their success of 55 million abortions in 4 decades but that euphoria will come to an abrupt end sooner than later. Murder charges will soon include coverage of the unborn developing human lives. Justice for the innocents will finally prevail.

      Amen, Tom! And Pelosi, Obama, and Gosnell will surely find themselves in God’s Jail.

    Burn, Nancy, burn!

    Granted Nancy Pelosi and her ilk are heinous creatures and certainly hypocrites with respect to their professed faith (In Nancy’s case, the Roman Catholic Church),let’s not cheer her potential damnation, but pray that she might repent and awaken to the truth; otherwise we may be found guilty of the sins of unforgiveness and self righteousness.

      Amen to your comment. God does not wish that a single one perish but that all come to repentance.

    Sticks & stones, Nancy. Meanwhile, your death date is looming on the horizon and you’ll meet your Creator face to face and give an account for your words and actions. I fear for you more than I fear you and your words. Repent & be forgiven before it’s too late.
