A Child, By Any Other Name, Would Taste as Good
I already posted the “cartoon” that goes with this, so here, again:
“Poor People Do Not Deserve to Have Children”

I received a phone call today from someone who had seen Demos’ Vice President, Heather McGhee, on MSNBC talking about why people need food stamps. The caller stated, “People who are poor do not deserve to have children. I’ve seen these people with 1,2, 5 children.
It’s easy to dismiss this as the ravings of a lunatic but the truth is that this mentality is all too pervasive, even though it is repulsive both as a matter of public policy and as a moral value….
And you thought I was kidding …
Ironically, many of these are the same who claim that abortion in cases of rape and incest is wrong, “because the babies didn’t do anything wrong.”
Is there anything as twist-0-flex as a ‘conservative’s mind?
And, as noted earlier in the week*, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals UN-gutted Texas’ blatantly unconstitutional (at least until the ‘Dred’ pirate Roberts and his scurvy crew of cutthroats get their bloody paws on it), abortion restrictions in nearly record time.

Abortion in Texas?
De facto illegal.
Forcing mothers to bring unwanted children into the world so that congress can starve the poor ones?
Don’t leave the Middle Ages without it.
