OK ... I have no problem with you not wanting to pay for other people's abortions.I am opposed to paying for other people's abortions.
I happen to have an attractive 47 year old daughter, brain injured at birth by high forcepts. She is permanently disable and on meds that generate an 85% probability that any of her offspring will be in worse condition than she is. She did not learn to speak until age 7 years.
We have had people (including SEVERAL DOCTORS) say that she should have as many children as she can. Based on their religious/moral convictions ... would you believe?
There have been at least 3 years where her medical bills have exceeded $150k/year. And many more in excess of $80k/year.
We do NOT like the idea ... but ... IF ... she got pregnant ... would you object to ME paying for her to have an abortion?
I am reasonably certain from comments ... that you, Romney, nor Ryan would willingly and lovingly pay the life time costs from any of her offspring.
So nehalem, what are the alternatives?
While we are at it and life is precious ... what about my almost 104 year old mother who has more or less been in a comma for the last 4~5 years? If I understood her correctly she "has had enough" several years ago but meds and nursing care keep her heart and lungs functioning even though her mind and consciousness has been radically diminished for years and continues to decline.
Open to suggestions on both ends, both birth and extremely diminished quality of life boardering on death.
Is that really what you meant to say?And in favor of women who cannot afford to feed their children being forced to have one.
