We can blame the religious leaders (for one example, the USCCB) who supported the leftist plan to make us into a socialist state. We are only one step away from forced abortion in the United States. That’s right…… only one step away from being just like China.
The CBO has announced that if we pass Trent Franks’ bill H.R. 1797 restricting late term abortions it could add $ 400 billion to the federal deficit. Philip Hodges at Godfather politics points out that this might be the first time that the politicians ever cared about the deficit, now that it can be used to push abortion.
Why? The Congressional Budget office projects that a good portion of the kids that we allow to live will need medicaid for the costs of their birth, and then more welfare benefits for the rest of their lives. This was brought to you by the “compassionate” religious leaders who wanted to outsource charity to the government until most of the population became dependent on it.
The last step towards forcing women to kill their babies is to make the health care professionals do it. Once participation in abortion is required for health care practice, (and we’re already on our way in a number of states), it will be easy for the government to coerce women to kill their babies.
