A woman should really know better. I don't know where it comes from, but it's a bit scary to think people like this are in the gov't.

I would suggest that if a woman wants an abortion and can't get one, file suit!. Because no-one wants to take care of an unwanted baby, The conservatives in power want to cut out WIC,(A supplemental food program for poor babies), food stamps etc. and no-one ( especially rich folks) want to adopt poor or unwanted babies. Like I said, No-one wants to take care of a poor or unwanted baby!!!. There-fore should not be forced to be born. If its not the job of the government to take care of a unwanted baby, then its not the job of the government to restrict abortion either!!!. This is simple logic. A woman can file suit to get an abortion for this very reason!!!. Rotten Christian conservatives accuse us poor of beeing irrespondsable when they're the ones irrespondsable!!!. They don't know what's its like for us poor. Life is not easy like it is with those rich ass scum!!!. And people don't want to adopt unwanted babies. Therefore, Abortion should not be banned!!!...

I had to LOL at one of the comments on the actual article. Someone said "Texas does everything bigger, including stupid."

Although I agree that abortion should no be banned, I personally think that you are giving an extremely biased opinion and not true as well. I don't think financial status has to do with this at all. You are being just as bad as those "Rotten Christian conservatives" and "rich ass scum" with your judgements. You might want to find a better argument. That's what people seem to forget. Extreme bias opinions will not help your argument in the least bit.
And it's irresponsible*

I strongly disagree; I think financial status has a LOT to do with this. Republicans want to cut off all access to abortion and even some forms of contraception. Yet, at the same time, they want to cut back on badly-needed government programs that provide money or food to poor people, which includes CHILDREN.

"Find a better argument?" I don't think so. I think some just don't like certain things being mentioned PUBLICLY, like the Republican practice of voting AGAINST government programs that help low-income and poor folks. Tough. We'll mention such things publicly all we want. Whether you or others don't like those arguments is irrelevant.
