Change You Can Believe In...Unless You're Unborn

Matt Drudge has a flash story this morning. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Fransicko) was questioned about the millions of dollars in the economic 'stimulus' bill for contraception... What? How does that 'stimulate' the economy?

Apparently the Democratic Party believes that babies are burdensome to the economy. So does Communist China. I guess this affirms when President Obama said that he would hope that his daughters would not get pregnant while single so they would not have to deal with the burden of a baby... Culture of death...

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi boldly defended a move to add birth control funding to the new economic "stimulus" package, claiming "contraception will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government." Pelosi, the mother of 5 children and 6 grandchildren, who once said, "Nothing in my life will ever, ever compare to being a mom," seemed to imply babies are somehow a burden on the treasury.

The revelation came during an exchange Sunday morning on 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.
