The GOP is not Pro-Life. As soon as the unwanted child of a poor woman is born, they immediately want to deny it Food, temporary aid (TANF), and Medical care.

If you are not married and become pregnant, it is your responsibility to either raise that child yourself,get help from family or give it up for adoption. It is not my responsibility to raise YOUR child.

No one is denying that child anything.

Telling the parents -- BOTH OF THEM -- to get off their backsides and work to support their own children is the best way to assure the child's well-being in the long term.

Why do liberals think the only way to help the poor is with federal programs? Are they all so dependent on the central govt that they cannot understand they are allowed to help others on their own?

The other problem you share with most of the Left is your post hoc rather than ex ante thinking. You see an uneducated poor woman with a child and say "let's give them taxpayer money" to help them. You ignore the ex ante effect of creating an incentive for other poor women to have children they can't afford. The end result? Millions of uneducated poor women draining taxpayer funds by having babies they can't afford rather than getting educated, becoming productive, and capable of providing for themselves and their offspring.

Poverty is an industry in the country thanks to these libs when black colleges give out degrees in how to manage welfare programs, you know it is not going to go away and the way they're breeding it is a growth industry. Many are gaming the system to where they are making more than WE are...I read just the other day that the average is 46K a year when all the programs are added up....that is insane.

No one wants to "deny" a child these things. Charity should be voluntary, not coerced. Liberals are always far more eager to "donate" others' money and efforts than they are their own. It's as if the Left thinks if we don't want the government to do something we don't want it done at all. You might as well accuse others of wanting people to go around barefoot if they don't want the government to take over the shoe business. It's a stupid "argument."

That is a bold-faced lie, promulgated by a morally bankrupt left as an excuse to continue gross infanticide. Conservatives are far more generous to the widow, the orphan, the poor, and the downtrodden than liberals. But we understand that government programs will never solve the problem. It is not charity to steal from some and give to others. Compassion is not how many people you can enslave to the welfare state, it is how many you can make self-sufficient.

With poor women spitting unwanted children out, one after another, Food, Medical Care and 'Temporary' aid will simply run out.

With 51% of of these parasites living off the efforts of the rest, how long before the productive simply cannot keep up ?

I think the answer to that question is upon us, right now.
Republican Party operatives, who wasted no time indicting their Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin for his interview faux pas on abortion, may bear more responsibility than Akin himself for the mess that has been created.

Akin’s statement, suggesting low probability of conception in cases of ‘legitimate rape,” was barely coherent and was said with neither force nor conviction. He said it was a view he “understood from doctors.” And soon after, he apologized.

Akin has served six terms in Congress with a consistent, unblemished conservative record. The fact that leaders of his own party joined hands...
