But dumping an unwanted baby to be neglected and abused by, say, a crack whore doesn’t strike me as the righteous high road. I would like to see more aggressive evaluation of families by DCFS, but, boy, does THAT open up a can of worms.
The correct solution to that dilemma will never involve the murder of an innocent human life. Everything is preferable to that, even all of the other potential solutions that are also train wrecks - which nearly every solution placed on us by our government will most certainly be.
Danno, the problem with your position is that there are tens of thousands of families wanting to adopt infants in the US now and there is a shortage of babies--why so many families must go abroad to adopt babies.
If someone does not want to keep the baby, give it up for adoption. Killing the baby is never the correct solution. The baby did nothing wrong and yet is condemned to death. That is just wrong on every level--and yet the Dems / progressives want to claim it is about the right of the mother to choose...and yet they are denying the baby that right.
Women are not baby making machines or
human incubators for childless couples.
How callous and arrogant.NO woman should be FORCED
to carry a fetus to full term. Period
Callous is killing a human being for no other reason than they are inconvenient to you. Arrogant is assuming the right to do so.
"no mother should have to tie herself down with a 2 y/o. no one has the right to tell her that she must feed that child." no one should be tied down to an elderly person. no one should have to feed that 90 y/o." At what point does life matter? making a baby was the result of a willful action (rape and incest extremely rare). if you dont like it then dont do what makes that baby. I want to be able to do whatever I want with no consequences. talk about the height of something......selfishness. my convenience trumps the life of another human being. rather sick thinking I would say.
So you think some DCFS employee should pass judgement of weather a baby lives or dies. Because that is what you are advocating, unless you think forced sterilization will be 100% effective.
So if you think dumping an unwanted baby to be neglected and abused by, say, a crack whore is not the righteous high road, don't' do it! If you really care DO SOMETHING about it!

My only problem with the narrative is that SOMEbody needs to take responsibility for the child. Here, the grandparents did, eventually. So how do we–as civilized, caring people –handle that? Make them wards? That simply promotes indiscriminate baby-making and puts more expense on the already taxed. And what do we do about abused & neglected ones who finally appear in the morgue or legal system? Whatever side you’re on, how can you walk away from the effects of your decision? Can’t find my way out on this one, folks, but abortion on demand is simply wrong, wasteful, injurious to society.
I would reply with a comment regarding Kim Kardashian's rear end, but considering only about 1% (or less) of my comments ever actually post, I'll save my energy.
aahh the Liberty Bell haven’t heard about it in a while. I bet if you asked kids today what that is they would not be able to tell you. X we really could care less about a bunch of whores called the Kardashians, oh and the pervert they used to call dad.
And the Grand Canyon...
And your plumber...

Why sealed sodas? I don’t know when the last time was a fast food worker filled a soft drink cup for me. I’m getting a cup and going to the bazillion drink dispenser.

The House was firmly in control of Dems during Reagan’s term. No question he DID make military strength a priority. I’m okay not having to learn Russian.

Or, “when will we know you are telling the truth?”

I just consider Obama a political operative for some unknown movement (SMASH? SMERSH? Spectre? Islam? One world gov’t?), and he’s totally predictable. Remember how he campaigned in ’08–an articulate, open, uniter in a post-racial America, promising to earn your trust? Quickly shed the Koom-ba-ya garb didn’t he…like Rev. Wright’s mentorship had no effect after all those years?

…and the next one, if Hillary. Even a secret home brew server, sinister avoidance of accountability, violation of records acts, compromising of national security nets Hillary adoring crowds. Ye Gads! Can’t figure out why the Left even figures the need for a Constitution if it’s all about ends justifying means. Oh yeah…to limit US.

This administration has been anything BUT “the most open and transparent administration in history.” The mistrust of gov’t is so deep now that I fear he has stirred–along with his over reaching and invasive policies that include testing communities for “diversity”–the seeds of a dangerous revolution. I can’t believe that even the Left acts glassy eyed in hypnotic support of Obama and Hillary, oblivious to the massive amount of discontent they are fomenting. Can anyone disagree that America has become a giant pressure cooker about to explode?

Seems the author is trying to punish rather than envision the big picture. RINOs like McCain and Romney will never get elected. We need a warrior, warts and all. I fail to see how returning American to greatness, a coherent foreign policy, making jobs/economy a priority is so stinkin’ abhorrent. Yeah, Trump scares me, too. But guess what, so does Obama. What if they’re both evil? The difference: Trump doesn’t hate America, is not rooting for its downfall, interested in neutering it globally, not swirling in scandal. Trump can cut across demographics, the likes of which we haven’t seen since Reagan….may get Sanders supporters. Lifelong Dems are going Trump. Suddenly, WE can’t have a pro-America operative sick of the political correctness muting mainstream America?
"Yeah, Trump scares me, too."
I was just thinking of a man who Donald Trump resembles in many ways... He campaigned on strong national pride, promising to make his country great again. He was also long on promises but short on details as to how he was going to accomplish them. He also didn't mind expressing his lack of respect for a particular people group, and he blamed them for most of his country's problems. Rather than turning people off, this just made him all the more popular.
In fact, this man had a real cult of personality in his supporters, very similar to the Trumpbots of today. You can try to reason with them, quote the facts to them, but they are not deterred in the least.
Here's a quote about this leader from a contemporary: “They thought he was a bit of a clown, with his big speeches and over-the-top showmanship, but they also admired his ability to say what everyone thought, but didn’t dare say out loud.”
Another quote: "If anyone dared to heckle [him, his followers] would beat them to a pulp. They were essentially thugs. Not that different from those we see at Trump’s rallies today"
You may have guessed this man's name by now... Adolf Hitler. If Donald Trump scares you, maybe there's a good reason.

Arete3: my viewership of Fox has fallen dramatically…Don’t know what planet Chris Wallace is on now, so FNS is no longer turned on…about died when they brought up egghead George(“well, in 1749….”) Will as a panelist, then defrocked Meet the Press baying hound David Gregory as a panelist (what on earth???)…thought the Fox panelists on the first debate were cringe-worthy. It’s okay. I need to be more productive anyhow.

And poor Matt needn’t worry. Surely the “Great” Republicans who preceded Trump, you know, the Grahams, Boehners, McCains, Romneys, the sell outs, the liars (who ran as conservatives, promising to get things done for us), the piss-pants RINOs who retreat at the mere threat of opposition…they could ALL use a dedicated, principled guy like you. [Sarcasm off].

Ahab: wish I could give more than one thumbs up. Trump isn’t my first choice…in fact he scares me…but I’m so sick of them trashing anyone threatening their stranglehold on corruption.
