Someday, we have to end it or see our nation destroyed. For me, that day is today. The time to stand up and say no more is now. Its now or never. Because soon, we will simply be destroyed and then, out of necessity, we will have to rise from the ashes of what we have done.
Early American patterns of publicly funded poor relief emerged mainly from the English heritage of early settlers. The policies and practices of aiding the poor current in England when the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts were shaped primarily by the Elizabethan Poor Laws of 1594 and 1601, and the Law of Settlement and Removal of 1662. The English poor laws classified poor/dependent people into three major categories and established a requirement for “residency” before aid was provided. Dependent persons were categorized as: vagrant, the involuntary unemployed and the helpless. In effect, the poor laws separated the poor into two classes: the worthy (e.g., orphans, widows, handicapped, frail elderly) and the unworthy (e.g., drunkards, shiftless, lazy). The poor laws also set down the means for dealing with each category of needy persons and established the parish (i.e., local government) as the responsible agent for administering the law. Parish officials were given the authority to raise taxes as needed and use the funds to build and manage almshouses; to supply food and sustenance in their own homes for the aged and the handicapped, (e.g., blind, crippled); and to purchase materials necessary to put the able-bodied to work. If vagrants or able-bodied persons refused to work they could be put in jail.

In my opinion, the second you get pregnant. This is my opinion, any abortion is murder.
I also don't care if you want to kill off your children, just stay away from mine. My morals I don't force upon anyone. They are mine and you wont be getting me to decide killing off my children is a good thing. Animals do that, animals. I am a human being and you wont change me into an animal any time soon.
So, my morals are my own, and yours are yours. I wont pay for you to kill off your own children though. It is against every thing I stand for and you cannot steal my money or force even one red cent of mine to pay for you to murder your unborn.

I am bit worry about the problem the zika virus is causing to the unborn, a virus that since the 40s only infested two persons in its place of origin, now is all over Brazil, interesting, then it doesn't really kill the infested but is devastating to the unborn.
And guess who is behind funding the Zika exploitation back in the 40s Rockefeller Foundation.
We can thank Brazil for the killer bees spread now the Zika is also been spreading from Brazil.
I wonder, as for the republican what can I say, they are politicians full of crap.
