I have respect for young people, who cannot find jobs, as they delay families. They are to be commended for waiting until they have a decent job and place for a baby. I also maintain that pregnancy is preventable, almost without exception. Liberal parents, in whose thinking abortions are fine, would not fight a jobless child going for an abortion. It is their policies that have brought the increased poverty, as Bush is not around and Republican efforts die at Reid's feet. I do note that Obama is still selling the lie that Republican policies do not bring prosperity. History does not bear that out. If he did what Texas, Wisconsin and Reagan did, the prosperity, he does not desire, would come.

I have waited. I now have 30 hurtling at me like a freight train in just a matter of months

But you are dead wrong that pregnancy is always preventable. Unless you mean abstaining from sex, which is unnatural and sick. You only have 1 life and then you are worm food. Enjoy it before its to late

Pregnancy is certainly much more preventable than abortion statistics would indicate. I doubt that most abortions are the result of "protected" sex.

Ever hear of sexual outercourse? It's enjoyable and there's no chance of pregnancy.
Our major public policies are based on the assumption that America will continue to enjoy growth. Economic growth and population growth.

Through most of our history, this assumption has proved to be correct. These days, not so much.

Last week, the Commerce Department announced that the gross domestic product shrunk by 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. And the Census Bureau reported that the U.S. birth rate in 2011 was 63.2 per 1,000 women age 15 to 44, the lowest ever recorded.

Slow economic growth and low population growth threaten to undermine entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare....
