House Republican Leader John Boehner has some MUST-READ information about the proposed incentive plan. One point that should concern many of us: massive funding for contraceptives. According to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, those "family planning" subsidies are necessary because states can't afford to provide services for those children. In short, don't have babies because the state can't afford to support them. It's a cost-saving measure.
The state can't support them? I always thought the most important question was whether the PARENTS could support them--provide for them financially, educate them well, take care of their medical needs, and raise them to be productive, moral citizens.
