Nancy Pelosi calls pro-lifers ‘dumb’ at Planned Parenthood gala; draws brutal Twitter response

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger award  at the organization’s annual gala, and managed a few choice words for pro-lifers in her acceptance speech.

“When you see how closed their minds are, or oblivious, or whatever it is—dumb—then you know what the fight is about,” Pelosi said Thursday, according to Christian News. “Whatever happens with the court …we must remember these battles will not be the end of the fight.”

Pelosi took to Twitter to brag about the award:

The Margaret Sanger Award was presented to Pelosi for “her leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement over the course of her career.”

Sanger, reportedly an outspoken eugenicist who promoted racist ideals about who should reproduce, founded Planned Parenthood in 1921. It was then known as the American Birth Control League, but the name was later changed because some felt it was “offensive,” according to Christian News.

“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it,” Sanger said, according to Life News.

“I accept this honor tonight on behalf of my colleagues, who have fought the fight for and with you,” Pelosi said in her acceptance speech. “The aim of smart public policy in our country is to advocate for opportunity and freedom—the opportunity to lead healthy lives and the freedom of Americans to make their own choices.”

Those familiar with Sanger responded accordingly, tweeting:

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, also present at the gala, received the Planned Parenthood Global Citizen Award.
