However, in the last six months two high profile figures, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, have resorted to population control arguments.
Here is Speaker Pelosi on birth control:
The family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in
terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health,
education, and some of those elements are to help the states meet their
financial needs. One of those — one of the initiatives you mentioned, the
contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.
And Justice Ginsburg on abortion:
Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about
population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to
have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding
Hopefully, quotes like these will increase awareness about how Margaret Sanger’s policies are alive and well in the 21st century.
