How can you defend a practice which takes away the most important human right...LIFE!!
The minute you lose your ability to care about, and defend the most defenseless among us, is the minute your lose your humanity.

The false assumption being that we don't want a social safety net. The truth is that we want one that actually works, meaning we want one that actually is a true hand up to self-sufficiency and NOT a perpetual hand out which is what we have.

Catholic Nun Explains Pro-Life In A Way That Will Stun Many (Especially Republican Lawmakers)
"I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is."
I am not religious but this sums up exactly what I think of those supposed pro lifers. They want to fight for the fetus but when it is born, they want nothing to do with the child and will cry about having tax dollars going towards feeding, clothing or educating the child.

oh and by the way, my mom did tell me once that if she had it all to do over again, she would have remained single and childless!
