Nikki Haley's Response to Pelosi's Climate Committee: Does Protecting God's Creation Include Babies?

Path 27

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley questioned whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s commitment to protecting God’s creation extended to include babies.

On Feb. 7, Pelosi tweeted, “We have a moral responsibility to protect God’s creation for generations to come. That is why today, we named members to the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. #ActOnClimate.”

Haley replied, “Does God’s creation not include protecting babies as well Madame Speaker? A committee on that issue would be welcome.”

Pelosi announced nine Democratic members to the new Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, NBC News reported.

“The American people have spoken and demanded bold action to take on the climate crisis, which is the existential threat of our time,” Pelosi said in a Feb. 7 statement.

The Democratic Party has been under fire from pro-life advocates for abortion legislation signed into law by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and comments by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam on the subject.

The “Reproductive Health Act” permits abortions up to the time of birth for the broadly termed “health” of the mother and revokes the requirement for medical care for babies born alive after a failed abortion, according to the Liberty Counsel.

The law also repeals language that classified the death of the child in the womb as a homicide.

Pro-life supporters have long pointed to the inconsistency in the legal treatment of the unborn child in cases involving violence against the pregnant mother leading to the baby’s death versus when the mother chooses to have an abortion.

In the first case, the perpetrator can be found guilty of murder in three-quarters of the states, whereas in the second instance the U.S. Supreme Court has defined abortion as a constitutional right. In other words, the unborn child’s rights are entirely dependent on the mother’s frame of mind.

In January, Northam made headlines while advocating for a late-term abortion bill in Virginia.

Do you think late-term abortions should be illegal, except to save the life of the mother?

He said if a baby were born alive under the provisions of the proposed law, “the infant would be kept comfortable,” while a discussion ensued between the mother and her physicians about whether to keep the child alive, CNBC reported.

President Donald Trump spoke to the issue during his State of the Union address earlier this week, saying, “To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.”

“Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God,” he added.

Trump echoed these thoughts at the National Prayer Breakfast, proclaiming, “Every life is sacred, and every soul is a precious gift from Heaven.”

He continued, “As the Lord says in Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you… Before you were born, I set you apart.’”
