"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."So by eliminating the next generation, who the heck is going to fund all the government spending in the future? Well, it seems the President isn't too keen on this inclusion. From Yahoo News
House Democrats are likely to jettison family planning funds for the low-income from an $825 billion economic stimulus bill, officials said late Monday, following a personal appeal from President Barack Obama at a time the administration is courting Republican critics of the legislation.But the pro-abort agenda (read, pro-death) continues with the revived funding for UNFPA, the United Nations fund that was exposed as funding the China One-Child policy (read, coercive abortions). President Obama says:
In addition, I look forward to working with Congress to restore U.S. financial support for the U.N. Population Fund.Um, wasn't it in the past year where a devastating natural disaster took the lives of only children in China led to parents begging to be allowed to be dispensed from the One-Child Policy and be allowed try again for another child?
By resuming funding to UNFPA, the U.S. will be joining 180 other donor nations working collaboratively to reduce poverty, improve the health of women and children, prevent HIV/AIDS and provide family planning assistance to women in 154 countries.
There is something ugly about "population control". What these politicians don't realize is that the demographic winter is upon us. Europe is on its way to extinction. But it's not politically correct to talk about the declining population as being detrimental to the future of humanity. Instead, we focus on fuzzy feelings like "improving the quality of life".
