Letter to the editor: It costs a lot to support a growing child or a single mom

Posted

The recent abortion/choice debate has thrown a light on the five states with the strictest anti-abortion laws. Except for Idaho, the others are among those with the worst records for early child care, child services and support for single moms. “We are pro-life and pro-child in the embryo/fetus stage but once the child is born, forget him or her. Good luck, mom.” The hypocrisy is amazing, but what is more amazing is the blindness of the Republican legislatures in these states — their inability to see their own duplicity. Of course, it doesn’t cost much to pass a law against abortion. It costs a lot to support a growing child or a single mom.

    You mean if a Republican saves your life, he's obligated to support you? Think about that.
