Democrats Seek To Deprive Poor People Of Their Right To Have More Children Than They Can Afford

Why do the Democrats hate children and poor people?

Christian Defense Coalition calls Speaker Pelosi’s decision to add contraceptives to the economic stimulus package bigoted, racist, elitist and anti-child.

It is unthinkable that the Speaker of House would try to stimulate the economy by seeking to reduce the number of children.

Our political leaders should do all within their power to protect, support and encourage America’s children, not crush and destroy them.

This policy would lay the foundation for racism and eugenics because it would seek to reduce the number of children to the nation’s poorest economic groups, which tend to be persons of color and other minorities.

(…)

Speaker Pelosi’s actions are even more troubling and hypocritical when one realizes she herself has five children. Perhaps she thinks they have more value because they are white European children.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states, “I was stunned to learn that on a national news program Speaker Pelosi defended a move to make contraceptives a part of the economic stimulus package. This is one of the most bigoted and anti-child policies I have ever seen embraced by a public official.

“It is hard to believe that this kind of legislation is coming out of America. One would expect it more from China or other oppressive governments.

“Speaker Pelosi shows a clear lack of compassion and understanding of social justice by laying the groundwork for racist and eugenic social policies. Clearly the focus of the distribution of these contraceptives would center on minority communities which tend to be poorer and more economically challenged.

“This situation is even more troubling when one realizes that Speaker Pelosi has five children herself. Does she believe that children born to white parents deserve the right to live more than other children?

Yes, that’s right: Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats want to inflict a genocidal holocaust on the poor and minorities by allowing them to choose whether or not they have to have children every time they have sex.  Monstrous.  Simply monstrous.  Why do those racist Democrats want to deprive poor people of the opportunity to support five children on a minimum wage salary?

    Well, as a poor Black person, I do not feel eugenics has anything to do with politics. On the other hand, as an adult, I now understand that the educated elite plan better. Therefore, their chidlren tend to be born “in wedlock” and in financially solvent families. I am 44 years old, still avirgin and living on social security disablity. So, I feel very strongly about responsible childbearing. I know that the Bible condemns abortion (in principle), so I would never reccomend it. I do not however, see the need to tell others how they should apply Bible laws, only to educate them as to the benefits. If people want to bear children when they are better off financially, I say great. Poverty SUCKS.

    Yeah, I think we’re on the same page here. Making birth control and abortions *available* is simply not the same thing as imposing them, which is the distinction the conservatives are trying to blur.

    Thanks for the comment!

    And conversely, making birth control and abortions unavailable *is* the same as imposing unwanted pregnancies and births.
