    Society punishes sluts with unwanted children? So its society's fault?
    That birth control is millions cheaper than the $$ spend on welfare, foster care, the courts and prisons for juvenile delinquents that then graduate to criminals. All higher risks when people have kids they arent prepared for or cant afford.

    You just prefer...very obviously from your words...to punish women. You prefer that imagined satisfaction to actual economic sense.

    As are my parents...if I do say so myself...who repeatedly took in special needs infants as foster children when I went off to college. My mother is a registered nurse, specialized in OB-GYN. They adopted 2 of them...both with severe issues. Some corrected by surgery, some not. As were the people that adopted their 2 sisters and brother who were also ALL born with mental and physical problems to a drug-addicted whore ("professionally") while she was in jail. Or at least some of them were.

    There are truly good people out there. As well as skells.

    So let me see if I understand your amusement.

    Between providing free B.C. to every female on the planet at the cost of say 50 billion a year vs the cost of millions of unwanted children's subsidized health care, food stamps, social services, housing, foster care ranging between 2000 up for so-called normal kids and up to 10s of thousands a month for severely disabled children. Increased cost of health care for every person who as it. You choose the latter?

    And you don't see yourself also being punished along with a woman who might be force to go through gestation and giving birth and be responsible for the kid for 18 yrs. And when the parent fails to provide, the state must...all because the Pope says so? Or because some fanatic uses psychic intervention to decide on which woman had irresponsible sex?

    Wow, good critical thinking skills!

What should be done to provide these children with a safe place to live, warm food, clothes and the supervision to insure that they have the opportunity to get a basic education?

    Whose is ultimately responsible and where should the financial support come from?
    Fed, state charities and religious orgs, but there are many other things that should be done too

    It would be more than great. Many things need addressed on this front and this is just one of them. Truly abandoned kids IMO should almost be given keys to the city. I know that costs money but I think its worth it.

    I was talking about the children who had no parents. If they grow up in the system, they'll likely be government parasites for the rest of their lives.

    Many will not. Many would, if they were allowed to. And, you know? Not every aborted kid would have been colored, handicapped or non-infant.
    So don't give me that bull.
