Nikki Haley slams Nancy Pelosi’s hypocrisy on protecting ‘God’s creation’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has justified her new Climate Crisis Committee in tweets by citing a “moral responsibility to protect God’s creation.” But one former Trump administration official wasn’t having it.
“Does God’s creation not include protecting babies as well Madame Speaker?” asked Nikki Haley, the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Haley’s comments come amid heightened calls from Democrats in several states for the legalization of late-term and partial birth abortion.
Tone-deaf religious appeal
There is no doubt that much of President Donald Trump’s success has come from his appeal to the Judeo-Christian values upon which America was built — but the same can’t be said for the House speaker, who tweeted on Thursday:
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

Pelosi’s Climate Crisis Committee was created just as Democrats are trying not to lose ground in the intraparty battle that is currently being won by adherents of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal, which calls for the elimination of air travel and “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”
Indeed, while the group reportedly doesn’t even have a place to meet — or any members who are Republican — committee members like Florida Rep. Kathy Castor are insisting that Dems are unified behind their fight against climate change.
“The Democratic caucus is unified under the belief we have to take bold action on the climate crisis,” Castor told the Associated Press. “My job and the committee’s job is to take the general concepts [of the Green New Deal] and turn them into a real policy framework and legislative language and eventually law.”
Haley exposes Pelosi
Castor went on to reiterate Pelosi’s claim that combating alleged global warming is a “moral obligation” for Congress.
But it didn’t take long for Nikki Haley to call out the Dems’ hypocrisy over morality.
Haley tweeted on Friday:
Does God’s creation not include protecting babies as well Madame Speaker? A committee on that issue would be welcome. https://t.co/gV54ROiYfn

Her tweet came just days after embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) made it clear that he’s okay with extreme late-term abortion.
“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” Northam said while describing a bill proposed by Democrat State Delegate Kathy Tran. “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired.”
Luckily, conservatives like Haley aren’t afraid to call them out on it.
