Pelosi and Scrooge: Soulmates?

The morning talk shows are abuzz with the following statement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has already been in trouble with the Catholic Church over her radical pro-abortion stance. In an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos (himself a former Clinton staffer), Madame Speaker made this statement to justify contraception in the supposed stimulus package . . .

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.

So in other words, if children aren't born, that will bail out society? Coupled with Pelosi's backing of abortion, she sounds a bit like Ebenezer Scrooge, only more polished. . .

SCROOGE: “I say let them die, and decrease the surplus population! Good afternoon!”

Think about it.

Late addendum. While watching the news tonight, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was mentioned by initials. As Roe vs Wade was remembered this month, isn't it a bit ironic that D.N.C. sounds very similar to an abortion procedure?

And to those of Pelosi's ilk that makes perfect sense. Just wait until we the plan for the ills of Social Security and Medicare! I believe Schaffer discussed this progression back in the early 80's.
More and more you hear some say" Yes, it's killing a baby. So what!" No bothering with the flimsy excuses anymore.

I believe part of the many sins of Israel that led to its distruction was allowing the slaughter of thousands of infants as sacrifices to a false god.

I'm not saying that God will cause the distruction of this nation for many of the same sins Israel committed, but it does give one pause to think.

It seems the Lord will have some help in the destruction of this nation. The ones currently in power are racing for the wrecking ball as fast as they can run.

To all,
Here's a little of obscure history, that SHOULDN'T BE obscure----

Can you say "eugenics"?

Someone out there google Margaret Sanger and eugenics. Sanger, was a fan of Hitler and saw contraception as a way to slow the reproduction of minorities and the poor to protect the rest of society.

So she founded Planned Parenthood.

And the lefties call US Nazis?

Yes, I am well aware of Margaret Sanger, and her connections to Planned Parenthood. Of course, they try to dodge and obfuscate those connections.

Nowhere in the minds of the Pelosian liberals is an admission of the failure of their Social projects to lessen the ranks of the poor. So let's just find another way to eliminate the poor without ever really addressing the issue at hand...again. Insanity is loosing touch with reality.

I found the acronyms you mentioned of the DNC interesting. I know it's a coincidence, it?

Good post.
