CNN Politics blog notes
that on the Roe v. Wade anniversary this week, President Barack Obama
affirmed his support for a woman's "right to choose."
As we previously reported
President Obama has included rescinding U.S. policy not to pay for the murder of foreign children in his 'pro-choice' plan.
While this policy trend is consistent with Obama's previous statements including his expressed
conviction that unwanted pregnancy is punishment and the views of his NOW and NARAL supporters, in the larger view it is inconsistent with solving our looming Social Security Debacle.
As the Social Security Trustees have described and Heritage Foundation has analyzed
, the net present value deficit of Social Security is large and growing.
One of the significant contributors to this deficit is an aging population. That is, more older workers and retirees and fewer younger workers to pay the taxes needed to fund the current and near future pensions. Having more younger workers would mitigate that deficit, but the policy of encouraging and funding abortions and contraceptives acts directly against the interest in having more younger workers. As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admits
today, a part of the economic stimulus package is ear-marked to pay for more taxpayer funded contraception.
Mr. Obama's policies and those of his party are both morally reprehensible, and act against the best interest today's children and the retirees of today and tomorrow.
