Public funding of family planning services prevents around 1.9 million unintended pregnancies, 860K unintended births, 810K abortions and 270K miscarriages each year, saving the United States billions of dollars in medical expenses (source).
Thus it makes sense that, no matter which side of the abortion debate we fall on as individuals, people are provided the services they need to prevent unintended pregnancies. Unless you’re a leader of the Baby Protector Brigade that always screaming about dead babies and evil doctors.
Then you admit that it isn’t about the babies at all, but about straight people getting away with screwing each other without a license:
“It’s another Planned Parenthood bailout,” said Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council. “It covers their overhead.”
He also expressed concern about the concept of public funding of contraception for unmarried people.
“The issue is whether taxpayers should fund, and thereby encourage, behaviour that’s risky and morally questionable,” he said.
And here’s what the FRC says about abortion:
Few things touch on the sanctity of human life more than the practice of abortion. A pregnancy should not simply be “terminated,” as if it were something impersonal and problematic and it cannot be without physical and emotional consequences. A child in the womb is a distinct, developing, wholly human being, and each time a mother decides or a father pressures to end such a life it is a profound tragedy. Abortion harms the mother as well, and deprives society of the gifts of the unborn.
What do these people have to do to get people to realize that they actually hate children about as much as they hate women? Roast a single pregnant woman alive?
