Nancy Pelosi Smacks Down Abortion Question From John McCormack (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D- Calif.) wasted no time in shaming a reporter's question during her press conference on Thursday. The Weekly Standard's John McCormack lead the question-and-answer portion of the press conference, asking the representative about her 'moral' stance on abortion.

"What is the moral difference between what Dr. Gosnell did to a baby born alive at 23 weeks and aborting her moments before birth?" McCormack asked.

"You are probably enjoying that question a lot, I can see you savoring it," Pelosi said.

Pelosi took the question as an opportunity to slam the current House bill proposing to ban abortion after 20 weeks.

"For them to decide to disrespect a judgement a woman makes about her reproductive health is reprehensible," Pelosi said.
