Don't give up!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats included hundreds of millions of dollars for "family planning" in the proposed $825 billion emergency economic stimulus package.

Even George Stephanopoulos realized that abortion and contraception doesn't stimulate the economy.  But when he questioned the plan on Sunday, Pelosi stated her view that fewer children would reduce costs to government and, therefore, help the economy.  (Link here.)  The Speaker wouldn't back down.

But then the public reacted.  And, low and behold, the Democrats may be backing down.  (Link here.)

If, in fact, public outcry can keep the Democrats (who hold both houses of congress and the White House) from funding one of their constituencies in a massive spending bill, then we in the minority have some hope for the next few years.  

So keep up the fight!
