I'm sure I am not the first to mention this on fact on this site, but I find it the utmost example of hypocrisy that the majority of the pro-life people are the same group that are staunchly opposed to actually helping (financially) out that fetus once it becomes a CHILD.
The conversation in my head goes like this:
Mother to be: Wow, I have made an irresponsible decision, as much as it saddens me I cannot afford a child, an abortion seems the best course of action.
Pro-life: No, im sorry, it is Gods will that this child be born, you are legally mandated to carry this child to term.
Mom: But I cant afford to give a child the life they should have.
PL: Sorry, God demands it.
Mom: Okay, but I am going to need financial help in the form of welfare to raise this child.
PL: That is not my responsibility, you shouldn't have had the child.
Wow, this thread went from gun control to Abortion in a hurry. Sorry for contributing to the derailment.
But yeah, I agree that people should be able to be armed (I do own a gun), but I see no reason why a private citizen needs an arsenal.
