You may all know that President Obama lifted the ban on funding for foreign family planning agencies which promote abortion. This is a serious matter. Yesterday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that birth control will help our economy. Birth control? Murder? Killing innocent babies? How on earth is that supposed to help our economy? And how is paying for abortions (or birth control, or killing children) in other countries going to help our economy? What is going on here? This is something I found on the Drudge Report.
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. 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.
We have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy by killing unborn children? Why not just take food away from everyone? It would probably be better for everyone. I mean, why take it from the innocent? Stop giving prisoners TVs and awesome food. That will cut away a good portion of the bill.
I hope we as believers are not scared to stand up for what's right. Are you?
