You "right to lifers" out there answer this question
I feel Baby Doe would have been much better off having been aborted
rather than the horrible death she must have suffered at possibly parental hands
there is a lot more to life than just breathing
when you start supporting healthcare, good education, mental health services (not all parents are loving people and that creates a societal problem) a place to call home..until you can solve those problems SHUT UP because you really don't care about human life.
stating that I believe more fetuses die in miscarriage because of the lack of prenatal care available to the poor. I don't have the statistics, but am willing to guess that is true - not to mention babies that suffer from lack of nutrition when parents are denied food stamps.
I am sorta going for the wording in the OP when I argue with these nutballs, but I think your first line may be more effective.
it forces them to take responsibility for their policies that harm the poor
although in terms of food stamps, the right wing doesn't care about anyone who has been born.
I recently read a quote from a Catholic activist who said that the RW are not pro-life, they are pro-birth,
Does this relate to a news story or something?
What were you thinking?
(Please, people: sarcasm.)
WFH today. It's so tragic. Why do people bring children into the world that they don't want, can't love or take care of. It's cruel. Much worse than abortion in my opinion.
depends on circumstances beyond ones control.
Poverty is often merely a result of the market. You can get a divorce, go bankrupt, make a bad investment, be hit by a storm that takes out everything you own, not be able to find a job and bingo - you are in poverty.
I we insist that the economics should determine if one can have a child we just need to abort all children - because tomorrow you could end up poor or rich depending on the market.
the capacity to properly care for a child. I am not poor, but I don't have children because a) I have no maternal instincts and b) I am fully aware of the fact that I am not capable of caring for a child properly.
It's kind of why I don't have a dog, even though I love them more than anything. Yes, I can't really afford to care for it properly (don't want to leave it alone all day while I am at work, so would want to pay for doggie day care, which I can't afford) and don't want the dog to stay home alone all day while I am at work so I don't have one. If my situation would change, I would get one.
The point is that I think people really need to think about how well they are equipped to care for a child in every way (emotionally, logistically, financially, etc). If you don't think you can do it, don't have them.
and so is his girlfriend. My daughter and I have talked with them about not having children until they are ready to give up their addiction to games. The two have agreed that is a valid point. And I actually think more young couples are thinking this way.
If everything is gods will why did God let it happen? Unless God wanted it to happen in the first place
Either God is all powerful and and all knowing or god is not. Take yer pick there is only one choice
