But a model Democrat and liberal! They say you can't (or shouldn't) judge a book by its cover.
In this case they would be wrong. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's latest regurgitation in a weekend interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC was to imply that babies hurt the economy so the answer for the long term success of America is CONTRACEPTION! That's right, this is from a so-called Catholic. Don't cut the budget, cut out the kids by adding Family Planning to the Democrat Stimulus Package. Who is her Bishop anyway and why isn't he jumping up and down on Pelosi's desk yet?
Actually she's not really saying anything she hasn't already said through her actions as a representative: http://www.canon915.org/2008/09/nancy-pelosi.html Her voting record is NOT that of a Catholic.
Thankfully there has been a LOT of recent flack received by the administration over this and House Dems are considering removing the Family Planning funding issue from the stimulus package and we expect to hear more when the House votes on the package today.
