This is an update that can be found in the article, so it seems that she continues to SPIN...via her spokesman...does this mean that she also advocates artificial birth control? yup... Michael Paulson updated his article with an email from Brendan Daly in this story:

Bishops criticize Pelosi over abortion

Posted by Michael Paulson August 26, 2008 05:04 PM


Speaker Pelosi's spokesman, Brendan Daly, e-mails the following statement in response to the bishops:
�The Speaker is the mother of five children and seven grandchildren and fully appreciates the sanctity of family. She was raised in a devout Catholic family who often disagreed with her pro-choice views. After she was elected to Congress, and the choice issue became more public as she would have to vote on it, she studied the matter more closely. Her views on when life begins were informed by the views of Saint Augustine, who said: ��the law does not provide that the act [abortion] pertains to homicide, for there cannot yet be said to be a live soul in a body that lacks sensation�� (Saint Augustine, On Exodus 21.22) While Catholic teaching is clear that life begins at conception, many Catholics do not ascribe to that view. The Speaker agrees with the Church that we should reduce the number of abortions. She believes that can be done by making family planning more available, as well as by increasing the number of comprehensive age-appropriate sex education and caring adoption programs. The Speaker has a long, proud record of working with the Catholic Church on many issues, including alleviating poverty and promoting social justice and peace.�

It makes one wonder if the "three month" rule was used back in the olden days, because knowledge of being pregnant could not be confirmed until that far along? It was the perfect confirmation by using time. Meg :)

Saint Augustine, who said: ��the law does not provide that the act [abortion] pertains to homicide, for there cannot yet be said to be a live soul in a body that lacks sensation�� (Saint Augustine, On Exodus 21.22)>>

Will THIS INSANITY NOT end??!! At THAT time, it could not YET be said!! So much has been learned about unborn babies SINCE Augustine!! Even the great Saint knew THEN that the possibility of learning more in the future was possible... That's why he said "yet"... THIS is her defense?... God help her...
