Many pro-life are simply pro-fetus


I am thankful for those who work for all children after they are born.

No one favors abortion, but I am weary of men, especially men in power, denying girls not only choice but access to information and education which would prevent many unwanted pregnancies.

Many who call themselves pro-life appear simply to be pro-fetus. Where is the help for pre- and post-natal care? Where is the call for health care for children, their parents and providers? Where is the money for education? Where is the outrage at child abuse, molestation and trafficking? Where is the fight against bullying and discrimination?

We need to adequately fund education, services and programs for children and those dedicated to helping them.

Unfortunately the funding that would be needed to "adequately fund education, services and programs for children and those dedicated to helping them" is being cut to fund for our multi-billion dollar defense budget. That funding is needed to send our children off to wars in order to preserve the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex. So much for pro-life: the status quo must prevail. "Where have all the soldiers gone? Gone to graveyards everyone. When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?"
