Think contraception and education instead..... they might not accept that approach either?

Make the HOV lanes easier to drive in whilst pregnant. Two 'people' in the car, you know. Wonder if you can get a tax deduction and call your zygote/parasite a dependent before they are born? The downside, perhaps, cashing in a two-for-one coupon and getting the second 'person' to sign the paperwork. Or (sorry, can't stop) two pregnant gals playing 'two-on-two' basketball! LOL

Oh good. I was just thinking about how not enough of my taxpayer money went to fund the windmill tilting industry.

A woman's body is her right to do with as she pleases. I am not for abortion, but I do not think my personal (or other's religious views) should stop someone else who does not agree with me. Unwanted pregnancies can, and do, sometimes lead to child abuse. Which is better: to end an unwanted pregnancy, or to torture an unwanted child? I know a lot of women who choose abortion probably would not abuse the kid if they went through with it, but like I said before, it's their body to do with what they will.

Armstrong, to continue the logic of your argument, you would be in support of an automatic garnishment of the father's paycheck to pay for said responsibility? Or do you not care how the child is cared for, fed, clothed and housed after a live birth has occured?

Unintended Pregnancies Cost Taxpayers $11 Billion A Year

A new study by the Guttmacher Institute, a leading reproductive health research and advocacy group, estimates that unintended pregnancies cost U.S. taxpayers an estimated $11.1 billion dollars a year. Nearly two-thirds of unintended pregnancies -- roughly a million births -- are publicly funded by Medicaid and other government programs, the report shows.

At the same time, the demand for abortions among low-income women has been on the rise since the recession. The abortion rate increased 18 percent among poor women between 2000 and 2008, according to another recent Guttmacher report, as a result of their inability to afford or access contraceptive services and their perceived inability to support a child.

“Anti-abortion restrictions and cuts to publicly funded family planning services disproportionately affect poor women, making it even more difficult for them to gain access to the contraceptive and abortion services they need," said study author Rachel K. Jones. "It certainly appears these women are being underserved." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/24/unintended-pregnancies-cost-taxpayers_n_866386.html

Republicans think rape isn’t a crime, but miscarriages are
