Yep, and you get to foot the bill until such point and time as the government finds that kid a home, if they ever do. ;-D


Eh sounds fine to me people have sued for less


Cool. So we abolish abortion and you get 1.3 million (using BP's numbers) additional kids to raise each year on your tax dollars. ;-D

Oh, expect a tax increase to help cover that expense. ;-)


I agree with Madison btw. anyways ....

I don't mind Social Security per se. It's the negative return that pisses me off.

Now imagine having to force yourself to sit down and write a check for it every quarter. :-P

Could just take that money a sock it away for retirement (CD's, inventments, etc), but nooooooooo, we gotta pay it. :-P

As far as the adoption goes, i was thinking that they may take that into account when shelling out damages. You have a duty to mitigate damages, so rather than give her money for the kid until its 18, which is what she wold be suing for, they may tell her she needs to try and mitigate the damages :-?

I also understand that many of these kids would have gone into homes where they're not wanted, but I'd much prefer them to be given up for adoption and have them go to families that very much want them.


I was going to type a big old long thing about this, but suffice it to say that there are not enough homes to care for that many kids each year.


I agree that not all of them would be adopted, but a portion certainly would. I think there are a ton of people who'd love to adopt an American baby if given the chance.


Madison wrote:The apathy isn't surprising at all. I hear about an abortion and I think of two stupid idiots that screwed up but fixed the problem, rather than burden the world with a child they don't care about or want. I'd rather hear about that, and rather see them get the abortion, instead of reading yet another article about a kid who was locked in the closet for 5 years with little food or water, and then having the government shell out the taxpayer money to raise that kid. How many of those 1.3 million each year would wind up in a situation similar to that? Half? That's a ton of taxpayer money wasted, when all it took was for the idiots to fix their mistake.


I think some kids would get put in bad situations, but many wouldn't. I'd also rather pay out some more tax dollars and see it go to raise kids than see them aborted. But in BP land, when everything from education to transportation to retirement is privately as opposed to publicly funded, we could all afford to pay a little more in taxes.

I also have a hard time accepting any life being a "mistake" whether planned or not.


Madison wrote:Also, if you want abortions to stop completely, then I'd suggest teaching responsible sex to the country first, but good luck with that, as it's going the exact opposite route.


I absolutely agree. ;-D
