The birth control spending earmark in the Democrats’ stimulus
package was suddenly dropped today. Whether it was because Speaker
Nancy Pelosi made the mind-boggling excuse that it’s cost-effective for
government to have fewer people or something else….President Obama today exerted his preference to omit it from the plan. It didn’t belong there in the first place.
After a national pro-life outcry following news that
Congressional Democrats placed a bailout for the Planned Parenthood
abortion business in the economic stimulus bill, President Barack Obama
has urged party leaders to remove it…
Republican leaders, including House Minority Leader John Boehner
complained bitterly about the plan sending as much as $200 million to
Boehner said there is no reason for an economic package to contain
funds for the nation’s largest abortion business by qualifying more
people for family planning funds under Medicaid.
With an overwhelming liberal majority in both houses of Congress,
and virtually all big media playing eager accomplices to their agenda,
Boehner and fellow pro-life legislators – including pro-life Democrats
– have to stand strong to represent the majority of Americans on issues
of moral values.
