(CNSNews.com) House Minority Leader said at an event in San Francisco last week that she prays “a lot” in the hopes of stopping the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be a Supreme Court Justice.

“I believe in the power of prayer and I think it is urgent,” Pelosi said at an August 22 event sponsored by the Public Policy Institute of California.

She was responding to a question from someone in the audience who asked: “Speaking of women’s rights, can we stop Kavanaugh and how?”

 

Pelosi said: “I pray a lot. I believe in the power of prayer and I think it is urgent. This, of course, is a Senate matter in terms of confirmation. But all of those groups I talked about, they are out there on Kavanaugh, too, because it is a danger to affordable health care, women’s right to choose, any stare decisis—Brown v. the Board of Education, civil rights, voting rights, environmental protection and the rest. So, this is as serious as it gets.

“And, again, public sentiment. If the public is aware of what it means to them in their lives. Elections have ramifications. People didn’t turn out. They were overconfident maybe that Hillary would win. And this president will be there for four years but these judges will be there closer to forty. It’s very, very dangerous.”
