Family planning services reduce cost?
We can fix our economy by reducing the number of babies being born?
Talk about a "eugenics" agenda.....
And of course the majority of the "family planning" funding will go to poor areas, because we can't have poor people making babies, now can we?
Pelosi should be ashamed of her remarks, but of course she is not.
The following exchange between Pelosi and George Stephanopoulos came on Sunday morning during ABC's THIS WEEK:
STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?
PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So no apologies for that?
PELOSI: No apologies. No. We have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy.
You can see video of this exchange below.....
The truth is that this new "economic stimulus" bill is so packed with pork and family planning funding and money for pet projects of various members of the Democratic party that there is hardly anything "economic" about it at all.
