Not one thin dime

will the reprehensibly anti-choice Bush administration allow to fund any contraceptive program abroad (where they really, desperately need such things) if the program so much as mentions the word "Abortion". But check out what they're spending over $20million on at home:Penis pumps!
"For example, last year Medicare spent more than $21 million on pumps to help older and disabled men attain erections, paying about $450 for the same device that is available online for as little as $108."
To top it off, they overpay for them by 400% -- money that might maybe perhaps possibly be used to assist fund-starved family planning centres in places like Africa.

Priorities? Ten-four, got that message loud and clear.
