Of course this is exactly the argument the really religious find most reprehensible. If you follow this through, why not just gas people who can't measure up economically.

Because it ignores the rest of the neo-religious argument: That it's not the reduced access to abortion that resulted in those mothers (and children) requiring public assistance, it's the failure of the private sector (the mothers' families and churches) to provide for them until the mothers can either pray their children['/s'] father(s) back to Jesus, find a suitable replacement husband at church, or start a huge business and make something of themselves financially like a Real American. Well, maybe not that last one.

EVERY child deserves the chance to be born into poverty so they have the same opportunity to pull themselves up by their bootiestraps. Obviously God wanted it that way.
