    Pelosi Says Birth Control Will Help Economy

    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.

    Right, so let me get this straight, children are a burden on society, so we should limit children to help the country out.

    Isn't that a Mao line of thought? What next? Mandatory abortions and euthanasia to any kid born or found in the womb to be mentally deficient/retarded or otherwise a "financial burden"?

    Maybe we should limit couples to 1 child, think of the dough we'll save!

    Unwanted pregnancies, and the children that result from them if carried to term, are a horrible burden on individuals, and also a collective burden on society. Yes, indeed.
    Ensuring that all citizens have access to the appropriate tools to prevent most unwanted pregnancies will most certainly help the economy.

    I hear Obama is going to have mandatory abortions for all children under five. A five year moratorium on toddlers I think he's calling it. Those damn libruls, huh?

    Re: Pelosi Says Birth Control Will Help Economy

    I have two thoughts on this:

    1) As long as people have the right to make a choice in birth control, I am not against helping them.

    2) However, help should come from the states, not the Federal government.

    You brought up abortion in a birth control thread, so if you weren't equating it, then you were bringing up a strawman.

    So either your comment was ignorant or partisan stupidity. Take your pick.

    Re: Pelosi Says Birth Control Will Help Economy

    Were we supposed to be upset that Pelosi supports family planning?
    Surprised, perhaps? Outraged? What?
    Is there really anyone reasonable who doesn't think that contraception is a good thing?
