Nancy Pelosi Scares the Hell Out of Me

No, this isn't going to be some sort of personal shot about her face or anything like that. This is more about her infinite capacity for stupidity (which we've discussed before), the fact that she's in a position of authority, and the very real possibility that she would be willing to lead us all straight into Soylent Greenland. Check out her recent comments on ABC why we need to increase contraception services:

Pelosi was also asked about some of the more controversial spending in the stimulus package, including hundreds of millions to expand 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."

I want everyone to notice a very significant point here. Typically, you hear folks from the culture of death criticize pro-lifers as "not caring what happens after the baby is born" or that they are "only pro-life up to the delivery." In other words, they lie. The attempt is to make it seem that leftists are REALLY the caring bunch because, while they might sanction the slaughter of the unborn, they are for all kinds of federal spending programs that will allegedly lead to better care being given for the children who manage to escape being murdered.

Nancy is at least honest this time. Let's just get rid of the children altogether. They are a cost, not a blessing. An expense on our collective budget, not a person, not a gift. People are not people. They are things that can be erased as simply as numbers on a balance sheet.

This sounds eeriely familiar.

Finally, careful consideration should be given to the danger of this power passing into the hands of those public authorities who care little for the precepts of the moral law. Who will blame a government which in its attempt to resolve the problems affecting an entire country resorts to the same measures as are regarded as lawful by married people in the solution of a particular family difficulty? Who will prevent public authorities from favoring those contraceptive methods which they consider more effective? Should they regard this as necessary, they may even impose their use on everyone. It could well happen, therefore, that when people, either individually or in family or social life, experience the inherent difficulties of the divine law and are determined to avoid them, they may give into the hands of public authorities the power to intervene in the most personal and intimate responsibility of husband and wife.

Paul VI, Humanae Vitae

Nancy's thinking is exactly the sort of garbage that results in people being baked into little green wafers.

Archbishop Becket is most displeased.
