Birth Control might have been the answer to keeping Nancy Pelosi out of office

I honestly hate Nancy Pelosi, I think the woman is terrible and I despise that she is the second most powerful person in Congress.  She, in my mind, is the prime example of someone who somehow stumbled up to the top.  This article is currently on 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.

  1. How is that bad? If people who can’t afford to care for their children and end up on welfare and using food stamps didn’t have those kids in the first place, a) the government would save money, and b) those parents would be better off financially as well. She’s not saying children are not good, or that it’s better if they were never born. She’s saying that people should be planning better when it comes to having children, and not let the government be responsible for health care, feeding, and caring for them. Yeah, it sucks that someone has to say “stop popping out babies you can’t afford”, but I think it’s sensible.

  2. I just don’t think it’s possible that funding birth control can fix our population’s lack of brains. It is the more educated people who use birth control. I just can’t see the woman who is unmarried with 3 children all of the sudden starting to use birth control. There are so many stupid, uneducated, unemployed people living off of those food stamps and govt funding who are not going to suddenly change their ways.
