Full story: Seattle Times

Washington State should stay OUT of the baby business re funding whether it is a pregnancy, birth or abortion.

I do not want one penny of my taxes supporting the right of another to have their abortion.

I had two babies and paid for both. I do not support abortion and do not want my taxes to go in the direction of taking a life.

We're not talking about schools, roads, bridges, gas or any other "object". I willing pay my share for such usages that support all people in this state.

But abortion? We're talking about the littlest babies on earth, not roads!

But maybe we are at the crossroads and it's time for Washington State to tell its people that they can have their abortions but WA taxes will not be used to support the death of life.
