isn't it ironic. The people the most against abortion are also the ones who want to do the least to make life on planet earth more pleasant.
Health insurance for all? Who you frickin' kidding. How many abortions wouldn't happen if every woman who got pregnant knew that her insurance would cover most of the cost?
Social services to help the poor. Food stamps and such? That's commie stuff. Yea, sure, maybe pregnant women wouldn't have to worry so much about how to feed their unborn child once delivered if she knew that she had a secure source of food.
Higher taxes? Hey, there's no such thing as a free lunch if you don't count per diem and other tax breaks that the right wing consider a god-given right. And there is no such thing as a free lunch, except for the part that it shouldn't cost a frickin' penny to run this country, so there shouldn't be any taxes at all, because they all love America, they just don't think anyone should have to pay for it. Especially tax money that might help someone who was put out of work because their job was shipped overseas by yet another American patriot who puts money before anything and everything.
And there are people who think a raped nine year old should have to carry her child to term, because otherwise the poor little unborn kid will never experience the joy of giving birth at age eight when she gets raped later on down the line. That would be immoral.
No, if those of you who are so vehemently anti-abortion would take the time to figure out why various women choose that option, and then if you would set about to help create a society in which people seldom even considered terminating a pregnancy because things were going so well for all of us, then the problem would go away on its own. But instead you guys want to legislate something that can't be legislated. there were abortions before Roe v. Wade. Just real icky ones that oft-times killed the woman too. Which is what you want, isn't it. Control over life and death. And the kid has to get born before whichever power trip you are on can kill him.
It ain't immoral if they die after they are born. That's their responsibility. All you care about is getting them out the chute. That gives you a moral high horse to ride.
Giddy up, pardner. Ride on west into the sunset, where you can ignore the actual issues all day long and concentrate on condemning the byproduct of so many social failures. Screw the problems. All you want to concern yourself is the easy stuff. Crap, a guy shouldn't have to think just to have a vehement opinion. right, DrT?
