  •  In Ryan's case, (7+ / 0-)

    and probably in the case of many of the most rabid of the "pro-life" adherents, the root may be in the concept of "original sin". The fetus while still in the womb is the only "innocent" life; once born, s/he is tainted with the sins of Adam and Eve, and thus condemned to eternal suffering unless "saved" by the grace of God.

    (And it's not just diapers that aren't covered under WIC programs -- think of the other items needed for infant care like wipes, lotions/powders, or OTC rash treatments. Heck, even ordinary toilet paper isn't covered IIRC.
