Oh, dear. Pelosi is at it again.
Over at DrudgeReport, there is a developing story about Pelosi calling for and explaining the need for federal funding of contraceptives.
She calls providing contraceptive coverage ‘economic stimulus.’ She explains it this way:
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.
Deny children existence and they can’t cost us anything!
And you know….it logically follows that:
If you provide contraceptives, then YOU NEED to provide abortion when there are contraceptive “failures”
(horrible thing to call a baby… isn’t it?)
