Have you talked, one on one, with any woman who has had an abortion? I have, plenty of times, in my 25 years in AA. Desperation, despair, overwhelming fear, huge depression, very real financial worries, very real health problems one way or the other.
So what support would you give that woman who decides not to abort? SSI after jumping through hoop after hoop? Food stamps given with a sneer? Trying to live on a starvation budget?
Would you be willing to pay, with YOUR tax money, for her education? For child care while she works? For a simple solution to a very complex problem.
You have my best wishes for a successful outcome
Hi there, just want to let you know I am post-abortive. Have never been an alcoholic but indeed substance abuse is one of the consequences of abortion. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping others to fight their addiction and to become sobers.
I'd like to address your point about using tax dollars for pro-life purposes. Our tax dollars already fund abortion, so why not use them to save lives? Please take a look at this article written in 2006: quote:
"Last year, Planned Parenthood showed revenue totaling nearly $810 million dollars. Of their $810 million in revenue, $265 million came from taxpayers in the form of government grants and contracts. In 2004 and 2005, Planned Parenthood received $551 million in governmental funding.
This is money coming out of our tax dollars. Planned Parenthood uses our tax dollars to promote, advertise and market the benefits of abortion, including partial-birth abortion.
Last year, Planned Parenthood performed almost 250,000 abortions, a number that has steadily increased since 1997. They also use tax dollars to fund explicit materials promoting abortion directed at teens. Over the past three years, Planned Parenthood has reportedly spent over $110 million of taxpayer money bringing lawsuits, challenging legislation and promoting their agenda."
