They'll support the children with prayer.

That's always their solution.

Public funding at least indirectly pays for both.

What becomes "acceptable" practice also weakens responsibility for one's actions and encourages that reality to become ever even worse.

Abortion has already weakened families, changed morals for the worse and actually out of wedlock births have increased since Roe vs Wade.

If the right gets there wish, then the problem here is transparent; how will we support these extra kids? It isn't a question of could we, but will we? You can't say tough luck, because you wanted these kids to be born. You have to pay for their healthcare, and well being. The foster care system will swell greatly and quickly to. Crime will likely rise as poorly raised kids will inevitably commit crime. Jobs will become more scarce as the children take up more of them. Homelessness will rise to. All of this will cost us hundreds of millions and most likely billions. This burden is something America can ill afford, but can with proper compromises, probably increased taxes or budget cuts. It will be a hard sell however, as many conservatives will be loathe to lend aid to welfare babies, or pay more taxes, or take cuts to programs they want. The solution to the influx of extra kids is something that isn't talked about by the GOP, but nonetheless needs to be.
Why can't those who are getting pregnant (when apparently they don't want to) take responsibility for their own offspring? There might be fewer "unwanted" pregnancies. Why ask such a ridiculous question?

Why should the American taxpayer be supporting Planned Parenthood with their dollars. Planned Parenthood doesn't need the money. They are not a charity, they are a business.

Welfare should be limited to those who really need it; but, also to those who are actively seeking work, and are willing to work. Too many are simply living off the government, not making any attempt to find employment and get off the government dime.

Saying PP is paid for using public funds and saying none of it goes toward abortion is about the stupidest statement I've ever heard.

Kinda like when a will is probated and a family divides up the proceeds. It's divided up equally among the survivors - the ones that worked hard and made responsible choices in life get an equal share right along with those that leech from the whole family throughout life constantly borrowing, never paying back anything, getting bailed out of every situation they get themselves into by the Mom and Dad and other family members. The whole of the survivors 'pay' for it with a smaller share when the estate settles. And if one objects, they are castigated by all.

Roe v Wade was pushed through as a law predicated on a lie. Once that lie allowed a foot in the door, the door was kicked down - abortions are now birth control for the irresponsible in society. While the use of abortion for the reasons it was meant for, rape, health, etc., I have no problem with that, but the reasons it is practiced now is for the reason previously mentioned. And all one needs to do now is call it a 'right' to do with their own body. Newsflash, it takes two to make three and preventing the three is simple, usually free and responsible. It's not a 'right' no matter how one phrases it.

The current practice of 'distributing' body parts for research and getting 'reimbursed' for shipping and handling is just an outgrowth of the original lie. And it's disgusting to say the least. And when we call it out, we get castigated by those liars to justify their practice.

There ain't enough smileys here to show what many feel.

If you need government assistance to provide the basic necessities of feeding, clothing, and housing your children, you have no business having more of them.

I would say that sums up my stance on the subject.

Care to list the RW legislators who support welfare to take care of unwanted children? Or are you talking about corporate welfare?
