This is a spin-off of another question I was reading. One of the answers got me thinking. I see many people on here complaining about abortion, but many who reply that way also disagree with public assisstance. So, here is a question:
What about a woman who is on birth control, which fails, who is already on public assisstance (or one child away from public assisstance), who gets pregnant? If she has an abortion, she is critisized (even though she knows she cannot afford another child). But if she has the child she is critisized because she is on (or will now have to apply for) public assisstance.
To me to be against abortion or birth control, you would have to agree that the consequences may be more people on public assisstance.
As for adoption, this is quite difficult for many women, especially if they already have children/family. Heaven forbid the child should be born with a birth defect or a special need.

Dawn: I have been having sex for 20 years and have been pregnant twice, both times I wanted to be. Its a question of accountability for me. I don't have a problem paying for temporary assistance for someone who fell on hard times and needs a boost to get back up. I have a problem paying for people who are irresponsible and careless.
