Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on birth-control funding as part of the $825 billion stimulus package: "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."
Eugenics was a social policy pushed heavily by the academic and political elite prior to the end of World War II. The practice was used to categorize some people as unfit for reproduction based on their poverty status, IQ, or skin color, among other speculative traits.
For Nancy Pelosi to suggest that part of a package meant for stimulation of our economy, kill off the "undesirables" of society is absurd and ridiculous. Exactly who gets government help in contraceptive and abortion funding? The poor do. Planned Parenthood buildings are primarily constructed in poor inner-city neighborhoods.
To be pushing an agenda of government funded death and prevention on procreation in order to restore the sociological and productive order of things, seems to be a bit of a throwback to an uglier time in Germany. To be duping women into doing it by telling them it is their "choice" and they deserve to not contribute to the gene pool is even worse.
