House Speaker Pelosi Claims Condoms Save Tax Dollars

Question: What is Ms. Pelosi implying? How does contraception cut government spending?

There can be only one answer: Reducing the births of low income citizens, would lower the costs of such government relief programs. Apparently, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger has been reincarnated.

Congresswoman Pelosi: "Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government."
