How to stimulate the economy

...I'm sure you've all read how Madame Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to stimulate the economy--by the inclusion of money for contraception in the stimulus package proposed by President Obama. So the way to balance the budget, is to cut out kids. This, from the self-described "ardent practicing Catholic". Exactly, where in the Catechism does she draw this idea from. But here she is with her own words in speaking with George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week.
"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.

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.
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?

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".

What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? (Mark 8:36)

"ardent practicing Catholic"

I'm thinking about starting a political pundit blog dedicated solely to Pelosi's antics. I think I'll call it ARDENT BY THE STYX. What do you think?

Dim - good one!

I'm sooooo tired of that word stimulus. It sounds sorta X rated...

Adrienne...*nods head in agreement*

The numbers alone are obscene, let's not add contraception in the mix.

Of course in the end we will be triumphant, not just because of the power of the Holy Spirit, of course there is that, but because the way the pro-death crowd is going in 50 years only Islam, Later Day Saints and traditional Catholics will be left. The secularist will have contracepted and gay marriaged themselves into extinction.
