Easy for pro-lifers to tell others to have children

It’s easy for pro-lifers to tell others to have children

I wonder how many pro-lifers have adopted children.

It’s fine to sit back in your easy chair and tell another that she should carry in her body an unwanted fetus to term, give birth, and pay all its expenses until it reaches 18 without incurring any costs — ­ emotionally or financially.

If pro-lifers really want to stop abortion, let each pro-lifer step up and provide the financial and emotional support necessary to bring a fetus to term.

Then after the birth, the pro-lifer should adopt the child and provide for it until it graduates from college.
