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?
