This week we have Nancy Pelosi taking a page from the Barack Obama 'a girl shouldn't have to be punished with a child' playbook.
Speaking on last Sunday's ABC This Week, the Speaker of the House was justifying spending hundreds of millions of dollars in "family planning services" in tough economic times by saying it will actually save states money. Now, one thing to keep in mind while reading this quote, "family planning" is liberalese for abortion.
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.

For Ms. Pelosi's grand plan for population reduction, I give her the national flag of China, Prime Minister Wen Jiabao would be proud.
