Psaki Dismisses Male Reporter’s Question On Biden’s Catholicism And Abortion: ‘I Know You’ve Never Faced Those Choices’

Mary Margaret Olohan |Social Issues Reporter

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki dismissed a male reporter’s question on President Joe Biden’s Catholicism and abortion by telling the reporter, “I know you’ve never had to face these choices.”

EWTN’s Owen Jensen asked the White House press secretary why Biden supports abortion when “his own Catholic faith” teaches that the procedure is morally wrong.

“He believes that it’s a woman’s right,” Psaki responded. “It’s a woman’s body and it’s her choice.”

Jensen, who has repeatedly pointed out the contradictions between Biden’s faith and public policy, asked: “But who does he believe then, should look out for the unborn child?”

“He believes that it is up to a woman to make those decisions and up to a woman to make those decisions with her doctor. I know you’ve never faced those choices, nor have you ever been pregnant, but for women out there who have faced those choices, this is an incredibly difficult thing, the president believes that right should be respected.”


Media outlets and reporters frequently describe Biden as a devout Catholic, though the president has drawn criticism for supporting and advocating for policies which the Catholic Church explicitly opposes — specifically abortion.

The Catholic Church teaches that Catholics may not receive Holy Communion if they are “conscious of a grave sin,” that abortion is a “crime against human life,” and that publicly advocating for or supporting abortion is a sin of scandal.

Just a thought…..Has Psaki faced this decision that she deems only the choice of a woman? That’s really not my business, but there are more than one person responsible for the creation of the unborn and both can’t be women.
AND, besides this is not just her body. If the unborn were not a unique individual with its unique gene’s, then it would be her body. BUT from the time of conception, this unborn is as unique as any living person. The only thing accurate Psaki said was this is an incredible choice.
