Funding birth control to cut costs

Fresh from the Drudge Report (thank you, John):

PELOSI SAYS BIRTH CONTROL WILL HELP ECONOMY
Sun Jan 25 2009 22:13:43 ET

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.

Why on earth are our politicians so short-sighted? A "Demographic Winter" is not by any means a solution to a failing economy. If anything, it will make euthanasia the next logical step, as how will a reduced workforce support an aging population? It's all downhill, folks...

    Reduce the population, use abortion like birth control and you'll have less of those financially burdening children. And by that she must mean poor children, minority children...

    We now are sliding down the slippery slope where we are PROMOTING the idea that MONEY is more important than LIFE. God help us...what horrors await us with this mindcontrol...
