An image circulating on Facebook claims US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi thanked “millions of babies for sacrificing their lives for women’s rights”. The claim prompted anger among social media users who appeared to believe Pelosi genuinely made the comments when talking about abortion. But the claim is false: the purported Pelosi quote originated on a satirical website; there is no record of Pelosi making any such statement.
