Pelosi - stop the poor from reproducing
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco, where else?) told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that birth control needs to be part of the new economic stimulus package. Here's the exchange and video:
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.
These people have no clue what to do about the economy - they are there to advance their wicked causes like ridding the world of less desirable, unwanted babies. This is nothing more than repackaged eugenics and racism right out of the Margaret Sanger playbook. Here's some excellent satire that says it oh so well:
“Poor people are a luxury we just can’t afford,’ said Rep. Pelosi, “They cost us a lot of money to maintain; what with food stamps, housing and health care. So if we can rapidly reduce the number of poor people through contraception and abortion, that’s a net gain for federal and state budgets, and a fast track to economic recovery. Every poor baby prevented is like money in the bank.”
A spokesman for Planned Parenthood, the world’s leading abortion sales chain, confirmed Mrs. Pelosi’s
assertion, noting that “even if the stimulus bill helps harvest only the low-hanging fruit by reducing live births among blacks and hispanics, that would be a major boost, since minorities comprise nearly 50 percent of those on Medicaid.”
Planned Parenthood continues to lobby Congressional Democrats and the Obama administration to include even more funding in the stimulus bill for better marketing efforts to attract minority women who have not yet considered abortion as “a viable lifestyle choice.”
“Despite our best efforts to date,” the source said, “only 1-in-5 pregnancies ends in abortion. We need the marketing money to spur growth in what we call our frequent-flier segment. Blacks make up only about 13 percent of the population, yet they have 40 percent of the abortions. We still think there’s real upside potential there.”
The spokesman added that, “Planned Parenthood, since its inception, has been the Sam’s Club of abortions for minority communities. We keep the product cheap so our customers can buy in large quantities. What we lose in profit per procedure we more than make up for in volume. Of course, our work also helps reduce racial tensions by adhering to time-tested Darwinian principles.”
It's beyond dispute that had we not aborted 50 million babies these last 36 years our ecomony would have conservatively 35 million more people producing revenue, paying taxes and buying things. The economic cost of abortion has been shown to be in the trillions of dollars.
Ms. Underestimated has this so say…
Yeah, Nancy… that’s EXACTLY how to get our economy moving forward! Let’s fund abortions, condoms, morning-after pills, and all other sorts of fun stuff that allows young people to shirk their duties as responsible young adults. YAY! For all you tax-payers out there who don’t suckle at the teat of the government, BOHICA, because you’re going to be footing the bill for all of this social recklessness and lack of morality.
Remarkably, Pelosi is a devout Catholic and mother of five with six grandchildren. At least this idiot Pelosi didn't think "stimulus" meant something like Viagra.
So we have a President who thinks babies are punishment and a Speaker of the House who thinks they are unnecessary commodities that put undo burden on the Treasury. I actually fear for these people because God comes down hard on those who exploit the poor.
