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. (None of which will see their budgets drop if we stop conceptions from taking place. If Speaker Pelosi is true to those intentions, then the answer is to kill children aged age 1 through perhaps 7. They're the ones who need immunizations and schooling) One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government. (and I bet Herod's kingdom's economy improved, right?)
STEPHANOPOULOS: So no apologies for that?
PELOSI: No apologies. No. we have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy. (in other words, "You didn't buy enough iPods or make good on your mortgages, therefore you must be punished.")
