An awful lot of women who have abortions are covered by Medicaid. So you can be cynically pro-life for economic reasons, too! Actually, it's MUCH cheaper to abort them than to pay to raise them to age 18. The cost of an abortion is a trifle compared to TANF, WIC, food stamps, subsidized housing, free public education, free school breakfast and lunch, free transportation to and from school, and even more Medicaid.

I use to be a pro-choice libertine. Then I became pro-life. Now I'm back to being pro-choice, but for purely cynical reasons. The vast majority of women who have abortions vote Democrat, and their children are overwhelmingly likely to grow up to do the same. If Democrats want to kill off a good portion of the next generation of Democrats, I say let `em.
