Nancy Pelosi and Family Planning

Nancy Pelosi in an ABC interview said that we need to give part of the stimulus package to “family planning” (code words for contraception which includes abortion) because it will help the states and the economy. From US News here is a quote from the ABC talk:

"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."

By her reckoning children are a burden and to get out of our financial crisis we need to get rid of that burden, what’s next? I guess she may see the elderly as a drain on the economy, how about the infirmed, how about the unemployed. It’s hard to believe people like this get voted in, but they continually do. I know where we can cut spending and that would be in getting grid of many of the politicians we have since they are the ones intent on spending money they do not have and taking raises, of which Pelosi got a big one, while doing inadequate jobs, that would help the economy.

It will be interesting who on capital hill will speak out against Pelosi’s views. My guess is very few and by their silence and the silence of the new president you learn much. In this brave new world we live in it is the government that decides who is worthy of life and who is not. But this decision is not, as Pelosi reveals, based on God’s word but on human logic and reason. When we no longer have as a basis for our decision making God’s law we are left with ill-fated and immoral decisions.

Below is a video of Pelosi's comments, I have a really hard time even watching her speak:

(Updated) Let me make a confession. Before God changed my life the views of Mrs. Pelosi were not much different from mine when it came to such things as dealing with children. I would have been one of those that saw the mandatory sterilization of those on welfare as a viable economic option. I am eternally grateful that God has so changed my views as to be appalled that I could have even thought of such a thing in the past.
