Over at Talk2Action they are also concerned about federal funding for crisis pregnancy centers. According to the 2006 White House “Faith Based Community Initiatives” catalog, there’s a total of US$163 million in funding for “abstinence” programs, some of which goes to CPCs. (Yes, this is the same president who increased Title X funding for Planned Parenthood to US$288.3 million in 2005. but that’s another story.) In any event, it is a blatant case of Statism, albeit supposedly in support of the “Christian Conservative Right”. Among the apparent concerns of those afraid this so-called “Dominionist” movement is that there are people out there who are going to topple the government and replace it with an intolerant and oppressive “theocracy” which will ram religion down everyone’s throat. Well-intentioned but wrongheaded public funding of causes like crisis pregnancy centers doesn’t help anything. You can’t fight abortion with statism. As Crockett’s friend put it, it’s just plain not yours to give.
