A few days ago, a friend linked to this article and I felt it raised some important points.
Of note, the Catholic nun quoted in the article stated:
"I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is."
To be sure, from a Democrat point of view, all points here are spot on. Republicans are guilty of these 100%. Democrats are nearly unanimous in their desires to have the government dish out food, education, housing... and abortion.
Of course, any Republican worth his salt will point out in retort that Democrats want all these things paid for by government and that they (Republicans) just don't think the government should provide all these things. Worthy point, but Republicans still like their big government. in fact, a Republican saying we should limit government is like a fat man suggesting you should limit your food to avoid being fat.
The reality of it all is that government should not pay for your abortions, nor regulate them in any way. It has proven itself much too inept to do so properly.
Government ought not pay for your food, nor regulate it in any way. It has proven itself much too inept to do so properly.
Government has no business paying for your housing, nor regulating it in any way. It has proven itself much too inept to do so properly.
Government really shouldn't pay for any of your education, nor regulate it in any way. It has proven itself much too inept to do so properly.
