‘A confounding statement:’ McEnany on Pelosi calling herself ‘very Catholic’

The Daily Caller reports that former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany just called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for referring to herself as “very Catholic” despite her anti-Catholic position on abortion. 

Before we get to what McEnany had to say, though, let’s look at what she was commenting on.

“Very Catholic”

The comments stem from the leak of the U.S. Supreme Court’s draft decision in which it overturns the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. That decision has yet to become a reality, but this hasn’t stopped the political left from launching an attack on anyone and anything that is pro-life.

Among the left’s targets have been crisis pregnancy centers. These centers have been vandalized and, in some cases, have even been subject to arson attacks.

It is in response to this that congressional Republicans have been urging the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate these acts as acts of Democestic terrorism. But, at least so far, it does not appear that such an investigation is forthcoming.

On Thursday, during her press conference, Pelosi was asked to comment on the situation – specifically to condemn such attacks. But, she refused.

Instead, Pelosi made a push for legalized abortion while claiming to be “very Catholic.” She said:

Let me just say this: a woman has a right to choose, to live up to her responsibility. It is up to her, her doctor, her family, her husband, her significant other and her God. This talk of politicizing all of this is something uniquely American and not right. Other countries, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, have had legislative initiatives to expand a woman’s right to choose. Very Catholic countries. I’m a very Catholic person, and I believe in a woman’s right to make her own decisions.


It is this statement from Pelosi that McEnany, now a Fox News host, commented upon. McEnany did so during Friday’s broadcast of Outnumbered. 

McEnany said, “I just have to address Nancy Pelosi, saying, ‘I’m a very Catholic person, and I believe in every woman’s right to make her own decision.’ I mean, that’s like saying ‘I’m Joe Biden and I’m the most popular president ever in United States history.”

“That’s a confounding statement, not to mention her lack of condemnation,” McEnany added.

Pelosi, indeed, has been in numerous headlines recently for claiming to be Catholic while at the same time supporting legalized abortion. It is well-known that the Catholic Church is strongly against abortion.

As McEnany suggested, how anyone can call themselves “very Catholic” while pushing for legalized abortions is “confounding.”
