Wait a second, why shouldn't anti-choice state governments pay for baby delivery?

Texas and all the other anti-choice state need to get hospital bills for baby deliveries sent to them. And why not?

"You want me to deliver my baby, so you should have no problem covering any costs, care for the baby, maternity leave if I need it, diapers, clothes, etc. Don't tell me to 'go to the Church or some (non-existent) Charity', if YOU want me to deliver the baby, then YOU can pay for it."

Tell the hospitals that deliver your babies if you live in an anti-choice state, just send the government the bill.

Let's see how fast this turns into... SOCIALISM!

9. All women should refuse to have sex with their husbands unless they want a baby and

I'll bet all those anti-women laws get changed in a hurry. Suddenly abortion, contraception and PP will be approved!

3. I think it's a good idea....and you have a good point. Since the Churches are usually behind ...

...the Anti-choice laws, let them be the first to step up to the bag.
They should have plenty of money since they don't pay any taxes.

4. Our family medicaid program

insures pregnant women. The income guidelines allow for most medium income families and individuals to be approved. I have been doing the applications for about 4 years and almost everyone who has applied with me has been approved.

6. I have always said that anti-choice groups should be billed for child care.

It is hard that they don't believe there are financial reasons that people abort. It is statistically shown that infanticide goes down when abortion is allowed.

12. Because after we're born, they cease to care about our "life"

 

Whether it's making deep cuts to our programs, the death penalty, or sending us into deadly wars based on lies.

13. They have no interest in caring for children or protecting life

Their sole goal is to control women. There are many was to reduce abortion, promoting birth control foremost among them, but they oppose birth control. They oppose govt support for pre- and post-natal care. All of that demonstrates what really matters to them, and it's not the lives of babies.

16. I believe they would like to take away our right to vote, as well.

Barefoot, pregnant & back in the kitchen - that's where they want us. I could almost feel sorry for men that are so frightened & threatened, if it weren't for the harm they cause. Fucking assholes.
