  •  Several problems with your trolly comment. Beside (8+ / 0-)

    the trolly part.

    1. Gummint pays for the effects of drug abuse, provides mental health care for those who commit crimes, and crime victims generally, and a vast number of other things. What is your rationalization other than loathing of abortion per se to provide a different and less favorable treatment for victims of this crime?
    1. Your notion of subsidization by taxpayers is lame. The current bills bar private businesses from usual and customary deductions for health plans, if they provide full reproductive services to female employees, bar using Health Savings accounts, which is the taxpayer's own money, for use for abortions, and eliminate the medical deduction for medicalcareand procedures when paid for by the woman from her own money, from Federal tax returns. All transactions which are private in nature and do not involve any money passing from Feds to the procedure.  Your notion of what constitutes subsidization by taxpapers is a made up excuse to reach out into private transactions which the Feds would never touch to bar them. That is all it is.
    1. Apparently your core notion is girls wilfully engaging in sex, as a problem. As if it didn't take boys as well to create this problem.
