I read an amazing article yesterday about how had all of these abortion not taken place that our economy would be much better. The math accomplished on this was something. Everyone of these abortions was a potential worker, as such they were potential revenue for government. Had they been born our national debt would be gone. Each one of those aborted had couple eager to adopt, but were never given a chance. We are watching other societies that embraced this concept of selective abortion and how it has affected their cultures and their economies in a very negative manner. So here we are doing the same thing expecting a different result. Insanity.

Not necessarily true. A good number of abortions come from poor women, and their children will be a drain on our society.

There needs to be more than just abortions not taking place. There also needs to be fewer babies conceived by young girls who have no business having sex in the first place. Of course, you can probably guess which side of the abortion debate has people doing the most to keep that from happening (hint: the one that profits from abortions).

Funny. Planned Parenthood gives instructions and provides literature for schools. Those kids go to Planned Genocide and they tell the kids that the baby inside isn't a baby. $900. Thank you, come again.

Do House Republicans risk being branded as extremist and out of touch by bringing abortion back into the national spotlight when supposedly the economy is all Americans care about today?

Last Thursday, Republicans brought to a vote in the House a bill introduced by Arizona Republican Trent Franks that would have criminalized abortion based on sex. Although the bill received healthy support, 246 – 168, including 20 Democrats that voted for it, it was not enough to pass. The floor rule under which the bill was considered required a two thirds vote for passage and it fell short of that.
