a Mother in jail is a failed Mother.

no anger or hate, but just fact.

I hope the failed Mother's child finds strength to use Mother as an example of exactly what they don't want for their own life.

You're missing something alright.

Do some research. You'd be surprised at the sorts of fundamental rights you'll find in there.

I understand what is written just fine.........you just want me to understand your blurred argument with no factual evidence.

I am not a sheep like you.

I also understand the definition of marriage, and murder everywhere except the USA.

Lawyers like you on a blurred vision have re-defined every word to fit your argument.

What I am missing is why we need Lawyers to read to us, what we can read ourselves.

conspiracy theory?

Bubba, there is a fundamental right protected by the US Constitution to procreate and raise children.

You can read about it if you care to.
