WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) chastised a male reporter Thursday, after he tried to press her on abortion.
"Is an unborn baby with a human heart, a human liver, a human being?" asked Sam Dorman, a reporter from the conservative outlet CNSNews, during Pelosi's weekly press briefing.
"If it's not a human being, what species is it?" he added.
Pelosi said Dorman was welcome to be at the press conference, but that she wasn't going to respond to his "ideological question":
I am a devout practicing Catholic, a mother of five children. When my baby was born -- my fifth child -- my oldest child was 6 years old. I think I know more about this subject than you, with all due respect. And I do not intend to respond to your questions, which have no basis in what public policy is that we do here.
