What I would like to know is who is going to pay for all babies if you make abortion illegal.

There was a thread on another board recently about a million dollar baby and who should pay. As near as I could tell the conservatives on that board believed the baby should die if the parents couldn't pay.


Good question.

Who pays for abortions on demand if we go that route? Why?

If we keep the child, who pays for the upbringing, medical care, food, education, sitting and such? Why?

Once the child is born all kinds of expenses kick in and I don't think the public should bear the primary costs, just like I don't think the public should bear the primary cost of abortions.

People make choices and they have to learn to live with them responsibly.

Good luck legislating that.
