when it comes to children, the government should be: Hands. Off. I think the parents should decide if they want more or less children WITHOUT ANY encouragement by "elitests" who think they know better about how many children one family should have.
Oh yes, if only we killed more children, all our problems would go away.This kind of **** is exactly why there is a perception that some conservatives stop caring about the kid the moment he comes out of the womb. Yes, it's nothing more than "liberal elitism" to want to live in a society with less crime, a better environment, and a lesser need for government spending...all while helping the poor people in question better themselves financially without coercing them to do anything.
CHILDREN are not these little "robotic entities" that as soon as they are born, their future is predetermined by how rich or poor their parents are. What if one kid turns out to be the next Stephen Hawking? The next FDR? And perhaps go on to solve a problem or 2 in our world?
All I can hope for is that this elitism will follow natural selection and die with it's own ideaology of "pro-abortion".
