Or, how about, “Pelosi’s Final Solution”?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent statement defending her move to include hundreds of millions of our tax dollars in the economic stimulus plan is generating quite the stir, and well it should be. In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Pelosi stood by her decision to allocate this money toward contraception and the abortion industry. How this is supposed to stimulate the economy and create jobs is anyone’s guess, but that’s for another post…
As I go about my work, this keeps coming back to me, and I find it particularly disturbing. Here’s how the interview with Pelosi went with George Stephanopoulos:
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.
So, let me get this straight. In Pelosi’s addled brain, to reduce costs we must simply reduce PEOPLE! Particularly babies. They’re just too expensive. Fantastic plan, Democrats! As I said earlier, no wonder Obama is funding the abortion industry like crazy–we need less mouths to feed in this country. Hey, you know what, while you’re at it, why don’t you just give one of your “tax credits” to people who voluntarily sterilize themselves or stop at one or two kids? Why stop there? Why don’t you just pull the plug on all the useless old people laying around, eating up Medicare and not paying taxes?
The culture of death and the Democrat party go hand in hand, make no mistake. I am, of course, engaging in a little innocent conjecturing, but this type of thing always starts out small and sounds rather Orwellian. Look at China and their government-mandated population control policies. One child only rules, forced sterilizations, forced abortions, they’ve got it all. A diminished lack of respect for the dignity of the human person, no matter what age or condition, leads inevitably to such things. Through his lack of support for the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (four times over) and his reversal of the Mexico City Policy by executive order last Friday, Obama is illustrating his continued disregard for human beings. His next move? Funding the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) with our tax dollars, which helped instigate, perpetuate and enforce China’s coercive one-child policy. I find this all quite troubling.
Plus, what about this stimulus package isn’t all about a dirty four-letter word? I’m thinking “P-O-R-K.” In what way does contraception lead to a short-term (or even long-term) economic boost? How much money do you think Planned Parenthood stands to receive from this glut of pork packaged as “economic stimulus”?
As Cliff Thier of American Thinker stated yesterday:
“I look forward to Pelosi’s opposition to increased immigration (legal and illegal), tax benefits for families with children, social security for selfish oldsters, and, most importantly, improved access to health care. It’s time we confront the danger that population poses to our people.”
Don’t count on it, Cliff.
And, finally, isn’t Ms. Pelosi admitting that the liberal programs put into place by the hundreds to help the underprivileged (and apparently over-sexed) sectors of the population not working? It’s funny, really. Instead of, say, cutting back on some of these programs (which are not the church-related, voluntary organizations that help so many anyway), she advocates cutting back on…people!
I suppose they’re at least being consistent in their unwavering faith in the rubber as panacea to every ill, i.e., throw a condom on it!
May I present to you the people in charge of our country. May God have mercy on us.
UPDATE: Obama trying to back away from Pelosi’s contraception Obama realizes that the greatest threat to his reign are his own people.
