Planned Parenthood – fewer babies mean cheaper government October 27, 2010

Ah, that sweet, good good Planned Barrenhood, always acting so selflessly, so much with the good of the society at heart.  They are just so darned caring!  Cecille Richards, the head of Planned Parenthood, has been lobbying to include funding for contraception in Obamacare.  She argues that reducing the number of babies will reduce the cost of government provided health care:

I think it’s important … to understand that unlike some other issues of cost, birth control is one of those issues that actually saves the government money,” said Richards. “So an investment in covering birth control actually in the long run is a huge cost savings because women don’t have children that they weren’t planning on having and all the sort of attendant cost for unplanned pregnancy.

“So we actually feel that covering birth control is not only it’s the right thing to do for women, it’s good for women it’s good for their health care, but it’s frankly good public policy.” [


Such benevolent magnaminity!  I’m sure Planned Barrenhood has never done any studies that confirm that widespread use of contraception leads to an increase in the rate of abortion!  They’d never argue from their own naked self-interest!   And I love the long term thinking of Planned Parenthood!  While reducing the number of new births may reduce immediate government expenses with the misbegotten concept of socialized health insurance, in the long term, the decreased fertility rate will contribute to an economic death spiral like that being enjoyed by Europe and Japan.  When you don’t have babies, there aren’t enough new people to provide for economic growth, or to pay for all those very expensive socialistic programs (largely consumed by the elderly) that Planned Parenthood and the left love so much!  So government funding for contraception is a great plan, if you want to see a huge spike in abortions, and if you don’t care about the future economic vitality of this country (and the world at large). 
New motto: Planned Parenthood – wrong on every single issue we address!
