    their thinking (if you can call it that) is perfectly consistent. That is why they will go to any length to maintain on life support a "host" that is clinically dead. But once that parasitic fetus is born, it becomes a parasite on the body politic (aka the 1%), otherwise known as a "taker."

    Face it, to the 1%, we are all parasites. They just think it is more sporting to wait until the parasitic fetus s born to kill it by physical starvation (elimination of food stamps, stopping access to medical care, etc.). Should it survive that, they hope to use intellectual starvation (attacks on education and science) to convert the parasite into a worker drone.

    The reason they were the good old days: we were neither good nor old.

      And if all that fails -- say, if the fetus's mother knows how to read and teaches the former fetus that critical skill -- there's always the "One And Only Christian-Approved Birth Control System":

      WAR.
