Democrats Back Down on Federal Contraceptive Funding

The Democrats have backed down on their attempt to sneak their "contraception for the poor" program into the stimulus package. (See previous post.) Barack Obama asked the House Democratic leadership to remove the $200 million item from the $825 billion package. It would appear that Nancy Pelosi will have to put up with more little Americans running around making life difficult for those who think the world would be better without so many people, especially ones from poor families.


This is a small setback for the anti-child forces. But what business did the Democrats have in sneaking their Leftist ideological programs into a bill designed to stimulate the economy in the first place? It appears that the price of liberty is eternal vigilence and thankfully some pro-lifers were being vigilent on this one.
