This from Ezra Klein regarding budget battles yesterday.
The fight also isn’t about cutting spending. The services Planned Parenthood provides save the federal government a lot of money. It’s somewhat cold to put it in these terms, but taxpayers end up bearing a lot of the expense for unintended pregnancies among people without the means to care for their children.
Here’s the problem, Ezra. I may complain about the high cost of government, but you’ll never hear me complain about the high cost of a human being.
That’s because I am one.
And, I submit, that if you do complain about the high cost of a human being, then you are not one.
