Pelosi jokes that the Catholic Church 'would like to throw me out' over pro-choice views

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) joked that the Catholic Church would "like to throw me out" due to her support of abortion rights during an event at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library Tuesday night, The Daily Wire reports.

"It isn't about 'What is your religious belief?' It's 'What is the right of people to make their own decisions about the sizing and time — or if — they're going to have a family," Pelosi said, her hands visibly shaking. "This really gets me burned up — in case you didn't notice — because, again, I'm very Catholic. Devout, practicing, all of that."
