Pelosi Slammed for ‘Barbaric’ Abortion Response When Asked About Unborn Baby

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is getting slammed for her response Thursday when asked if an unborn baby at 15 weeks is a human being.

Pelosi was simply asked by a CNS News reporter: “Is an unborn baby at 15 weeks a human being?”

“Let me just say that I am a big supporter of Roe v. Wade,” Pelosi said.

“I am a mother of five children in six years. I think I have some standing on this issue as to respecting a woman’s right to choose,” the Democrat leader added.

“Is it a human being?” the reporter followed up with. Pelosi refused to answer pointing to other journalists.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Pelosi’s response as “barbaric” afterward on Twitter.

“Science doesn’t matter to today’s radical Dems—it’s all politics,” Cruz said.

The Young America’s Foundation also took Pelosi to task for her comments:

“Using your motherhood to advocate for others to kill their babies is absolutely shameful, Nancy Pelosi.”
