Pelosi the Apostate says birth control will help the economy

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, quasi-Catholic, 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.

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.

Do you suppose she ever held that meeting with Archbishop Niederauer of San Francisco about reconciling her pro-choice voting and her supposed Catholicism? Or is she a liar, too?

You can always tell a bureaucrat who can't get a grasp on her job. She'll concentrate on solving another level of government's problem.

How can "family planning services reduce cost" when they supposedly were "underfunded" during Republican Administrations and now will get lots more funding? I'd like to see some math, rather than her knee jerk radical feminism at work.

In point of fact, the only thing that will help our economy grow again is if there are children to pay for the Soc. Sec. of the boomers, to replace the savings drained by the boomers in retirement.

The fact that she still claims to be a Catholic gives it a whole other disgusting patina.
