Over at The Corner, Kathryn Jean Lopez points to a disgraceful $10-million hike in taxpayer funds for family planning groups, such as Planned Parenthood, included in the Omnibus spending bill:
$327 million is allocated for the Title X Family Planning Program which provides funding to groups like Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the nation. This is a $10 million increase over last year (FY10 level was $317 million) and a $44 million increase over the last four years (FY07 level was $283 million).
Oh, that’s right. Pumping more federal dollars into family planning groups stimulates the economy, because everyone knows children are a net drain on prosperity. Forget the old saw that human beings are our best economic resource.
