I have argued for years the problem I have with Conservatives and their pro-life stance is they have little consideration for social programs caring for infants after birth.
Recently a name for this passed by me the other day; Conservatives tend to be pro-birth not necessarily pro-choice.
Although I am Catholic, and my religion stands firmly with the pro-life movement, I believe the government should not interfere with a women’s choice. I do not believe abortion should be used as a method of birth control. Their are ways to stop unwanted pregnancies. Although Republicans want to do away with clinics that teach birth control.
And don’t tell me birth control isn’t being used, another no no in my religion. Church pews used to be filled with kids of a family while I was growing up. Now you’ll see one or two children per family. Maybe the males are firing more blanks are the women have become less fertile.
Historically, and you can Google the following, Republican’s vote against programs as abortion clinics, WICK. nutritional programs, meals for young children in school, social funded programs, etc.
Even some I personally know who have daughters who used the WICK program, after their use, were critical of the program. People I know who are on disability are critical of socialism. Perhaps they don’t understand the definition.
My column this week in the Laurel-Seaford Star details the difference between Socialism and Capitalism. You’ll be surprised to find out how many of us benefit from socialism.
