    That will be the $180,000 over the course of your life, not including inflation and unforeseen expenses. And that is from a Huffington Post article:

    I took the middle figure of $300 a month times by 600 months or 50 years. Good luck kids.

    Treatment of injuries from1 serious car accident with HMO discounts= $500,000.00 +. Insurance paid it all.

    Without HMO discounts= you do NOT want to know.

    What?! The White House reopened?! I thought Obama shut it down to tours and such because of the sequester…

    Yeah it is so much cheaper to send hundreds of millions for abortion clinics.

    At this time, we have anywhere from 8 million to 600 quadrillion people (depending on which news source you quote) who are out of work. There are over 11 million illegal aliens. Let’s assume abortion is illegal, and so only a few thousand women die annually from back-alley “complications from appendicitis” (the code words during the good old days of back-alley abortions). So let’s use your figures and expect that the US population is “hundreds of millions” greater.

    How do you feed everyone? If you think unemployment is a problem now, how would our society handle it if we had millions more people and no more jobs? How would the hospitals deal with millions more sick people showing up for “free” treatment in the e-room? How would our bankrupt society educate and house all these extra people?

    I am not saying that anyone is right or wrong. I AM saying, however, that every major change in the fabric of American society has consequences, many unexpected and/or unanticipated. Way too many policy decisions have been made without considering the consequences.

    Even if that is true those people did have a shot, with the kids what did they do to have what they are and everything they could be taken away? What was there crime. Sorry apple and oranges.

    Your point cannot be argued. It’s a good one. However, there is very little in life worse than being an unwanted child.

    No one who wants a child will beat the child, shake it until its brain turns to mush, scald the child, starve the child…..when you read about the 12-year-old who weighs 38 pounds due to parental mistreatment, do you thank your deity that at least that child is alive?

    How well will that child function in society after that kind of childhood?

    And even with altruistic couples who want to adopt as many children as they can, there are still so many to choose from that minority babies and those with developmental problems, those born with crack addiction, etc., are still unwanted. No argument: they did not commit a crime. But what kind of life can they expect if they are unwanted?

    Very few things are black-and-white, and this is why we have so many disagreements about the right way to proceed.

    One thing is for sure: the demand for abortion will not go away. And even with legal availability, some mothers still flush their babies down the toilet or leave them in dumpsters.

    No easy answers.

    Good post , very sad but true in its simple points. I think cons and libs alike wish there were answers. Can’t wait to see freethinkerz try and crosswire your logic!
