“You spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full of direst cruelty.”
~Macbeth, Act 1, Scene V
“The family-planning services reduce cost,” she said. “The states are in terrible fiscal budget crisis now, and part of it, what we do for children’s health, education, and some of those elements, are to help the states meet their financial needs.”
It sounds an awful lot like the lovely Ms. Pelosi is suggesting that a vital way for states to save money is by ensuring less babies are born (“family planning”…ya right! At least have the audacity to call it what it really is!) But perhaps if President Obama’s brilliant stimulus package did not include money going to swimming pools and the porn industry, we could come up with more humane ways to budget than killing the unborn.
And if I did some how misconstrue the above quote, then here is another cozy one from the speaker:
“If you don’t want an abortion, you don’t believe in it, [then] don’t have one. But don’t tell somebody else what they can do in terms of honoring their responsibilities.”
Honoring their responsibilities?
Thank you Ms. Pelosi. I think that perhaps as Lady Macbeth was, you have been unsexed because as a woman, you are surely as hard as nails and cold to the core of your being. Otherwise, you would not suggest such a wicked means to an end. I can not comprehend it.
