30. Not gay, but against abortion...

BUT, I feel that I cannot tell a woman to not have an abortion without offering to take and raise the child, regardless of its sex, ethnic background, health, or conditions under which it was conceived, or the medical background of the parents. That takes a lot of nerve.

Many children who were not wanted and were not aborted are often mistreated, abused, and generally not cared for, come home from school to an empty house, or where parents are under drugs, go without dinner or help with homework, have no clean clothes, are riciduled or worse, were compelled to get involved in crime just to get necessities. The prisons are filled with them.

As a Democrat, I feel that by supporting elected officials who pass laws to help children get food, clothing, and help the mother to get day care, food stamps, medical care, I may discourage a woman from even considering getting an abortion. An out-of-wedlock kid is not a disgrace anymore. To a Dem, the disgrace is in not helping the mother.

A question for you....when you look at the number of people in prison in this country, do you ever wonder if they wish they weren't born?

Do what you will..
