TWH's Psaki Snaps At Reporter Over Abortion Question

Daily Mail Screenshot 9/3/21

White House press secretary Jen Psaki snapped at a male Catholic TV reporter questioning how President Biden squares his abortion views with his faith, telling him: 'I know you've never been pregnant.' 'Why does the President support abortion when his own catholic faith teaches it is morally wrong?' 

Owen Jensen, reporter for Catholic television network EWTN, asked the press secretary on Thursday afternoon.

 'He believes it's a woman's right, it's a woman's body and it's her choice. It's up to a woman to make those decisions and a woman's decision to make with her doctor.' 'I know you have 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.' 

Psaki snapped after the Supreme Court refused to block one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, where terminating a pregnancy is illegal after 6 weeks' gestation. 

Psaki was asked if the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling came as a shock to the White House. 'You can never predict rulings. We certainly know the make-up of the court,' she said. She was also asked if Biden's position on court-packing has changed given the most recent ruling. 'He's waiting for the conclusion of this report,' she said.
