Post-birth concern

To the editor:

A recent letter from a “pro-life” Eudora woman states, “I will always advocate for those most helpless, especially the unborn.” Actually, most of the “unborn” don’t need much help until they are “born.” I guess that means that she, along with other pro-life individuals, are in favor of helping the “born” who may need social services during the course of their lifetime including affordable health care, access to nutritional foods, a good education, affordable housing and a variety of disability services from birth through old age.

If services in these areas are being cut or eliminated, as is happening in Kansas, then I would suggest that the “unborn” as well as the “born” are not being aided and supported. True acts of compassion are best demonstrated when life leaves the womb.

From the first letter: "I will always advocate for those most helpless, especially the unborn." What the letter writer interpreted: I will always advocate for those most helpless, but that is only the unborn.

"Actually, most of the “unborn” don’t need much help until they are “born.”

I take exception to this stupid statement. The unborn obviously need our protection from the pro abortion advocates such as you who would deny them their right to life.

Choosing to abort or choosing to have it knowing you can't support it are both a big big problem for The Great Society.

"In a way things were better in the past....when unmarried mothers were treated most cruelly and few cared what happened to them or to the babies they carried. "

Do I need to say anything?

In a way things were better in the past before people were over educated in certain matters and started to show off the words they had learned. All that education did was to distance women from their children and their husbands. Their girl friends started to mean more to them. I also remember when unmarried mothers were treated most cruelly and few cared what happened to them or to the babies they carried.
I think we should see each other as brothers and sisters and act accordingly keeping in mind that people are always going to argue about single mothers, abortion, health care, etc.

The Supreme Court's ruling say the mandate is a tax, makes Romneycare in Mass. responsible for one of the largest tax hikes in state history. He raised taxes, the state has better healthcare and cost are now going down. A good model for the country.

Obamacare will take care of the millions of 'unwanted' babies now with his "tax" on them. You know his OWS 99%'ers.

Obama Sees Middle Class Tax Increase as a Victory Posted 06/29/2012 | In The News1*

The Largest Tax Hike in US History has just been upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States and President Obama sees this assault on the middle class as a victory. The already unpopular 2010 health care reform law has been converted by the court into a $1.76 trillion tax increase funded by escalating taxes to be paid the vast majority of taxpayers. The high court’s ruling leaves in place 20 tax increases in the health-care law, of those, 12 tax hikes would affect families earning less than $250,000 per year, including a “Cadillac tax” on high-cost insurance plans, a tax on insurance providers, and an excise tax on medical device manufacturers. By formally converting ‘Obamacare’ into ‘Obamatax,’ the court allows Obama to raise taxes on the middle-class. The decision is a distressing blow to taxpayers and represents the single largest tax increase on young people in the nation’s history. When it takes full effect, the Internal Revenue Service will have immense new power and authority to persecute and prosecute a whole new group of taxpayers.

They're really not much interested in helping the unborn, either. Good prenatal care can help prevent premature births, some birth defects, and other problems that can affect children the rest of their lives. Many poor or young women who are pregnant do not get adequate prenatal care because they lack insurance or the means to pay for this care. What they don't understand is that a little money spent providing prenatal care can prevent severe, lifelong problems that are very expensive to treat.
