Is abortion legal in Ohio?
Yes it is.
Then, Ohio stinks for unborn blacks.

Why? Because the most dangerous place on Earth for a black is in its mother's womb.
Why?
White democrats' and the other progressive vermin.

Perhaps you should produce films and posters that depict all those against whom you're prejudiced as an infestation of rats scurrying around Berlin infecting all the specially entitled Aryan Volk.

So you want to penalize females who get pregnant? Unless you propose jacking up the father's wages. He's going to need the money and it does take two to tango and raise a kid. The military has it set up - even if you have illegitimate kids you WILL pay child support. I knew someone in the service who paid support for five illegitimate kids in California alone. His pay was docked for support but he kept on sowing his wild oats every week and bragging about it. Somebody should've introduced him to Ramses or maybe a Trojan ; )
It's not a penalty but a price you pay for starting a family. Having children is not a necessity.

I think it's only fair that an employer pay their dedicated employees who are at the job every single day better than those who drift in and out. It costs employers money to replace workers. They have to train them, watch over them, correct their mistakes and so on. Then of course you will have people that have unacceptable production and have to lay them off which increases your unemployment insurance. Or you have people that decide they don't like the job and quit in a month or two. It's just a lot of problems.

So it's not penalizing women, it's rewarding men and women who didn't put themselves in that situation. As for your scenario with the father, if they are barely able to make ends meet, then they probably shouldn't be having children in the first place.

I'm not an employer, but I am a landlord. My policy is not to raise rents on my good tenants. When somebody leaves, I ask going rate for that apartment lat the time and freeze it there. If somebody leaves and wants to come back a few years later, I'm not giving them their old rental rate back. So far it's worked out pretty good. My tenants know as long as they stay here, their rent is frozen while they watch other apartments increase in price. The longer they stay, the more they save. Not having empty apartments is a huge savings for me. Freezing rents is my way of rewarding my good tenants.

Perhaps you should resume fisting your dad, unless contact with you is a violation of his parole.

If they don't do the work required to get raises while they're off, they shouldn't get the raises. That's not penalizing them, it's giving them exactly what they earned. If a man were off for several years, he wouldn't get the accumulated raises either.
