Speaker Pelosi defends stimulus money for family planning services

"The family planning services reduce cost," Pelosi said. "One of the
elements of this package is assistance to the states. 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."

Hey, Speaker, we got your stimulus package right here.

Update (27 January).  The Heritage Foundation calls bullshit on this Pelosism. Tip from Michelle Malkin.

Steve Waldman tries to make some sense out of the whole issue, and (wisely) recommends decoupling family planning from abortion, so everyone can make some progress.  Good luck with that, it makes too much sense.
