Anti-abortion funding : Let’s walk backwards with the Republicans
The worthy Republicans are giving a call to the Americans, “Let’s walk backwards.” First, they try to repeal the much-awaited health care reform law. And now, they are trying to stop funding for the family planning and abortion providing institutions. There is to be a vote to enact the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act.
Title X is a federal grant program that is dedicated solely to providing family planning services such as screenings and preventive services such as emergency contraceptives, birth control and abortions for low-income families.
But what is the need for all these? Of course, people who can pay for insurance can get these benefits easily. But how can the poor ever hope to get these luxuries?! They will have to abstain from sex. And if a poor girl is raped, she will have to give birth to that unwanted child. The Republicans will certainly protect the rights of that unborn child; the right of the poor young mother doesn’t matter. And if a low-income mother is suffering from a disease while pregnant, a disease that can cripple the unborn child or kill her, she will still have to go the whole way with her pregnancy, for the poor must bear the burden of the pro-life Republican’s morality and conscience.
And the country will be blessed with hundreds and thousands of unwanted children of the poor. They will increase the rate of poverty, of crime and of unemployment.
But after all, we will be saving a lot of federal money by enacting the Anti-Abortion funding bill! So let’s go for it. Let’s all walk backwards with the Republicans and if this goes on, we will reach the social condition of the third world countries soon enough!!
