Psaki clashes with Catholic reporter over abortion ahead of Biden meeting pope

White House press secretary Jen Psaki clashed with a reporter from Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) over whether abortion would be on the table when President Biden meets the pope.

The press secretary and the reporter from EWTN have previously disagreed on the subject of abortion when discussing the Texas abortion ban.
