It’s like the Great George Carlin said: Pre-born you’re fine; pre-school, you’re fucked:
Two Republican members of Kentucky’s House are attaching antiabortion-rights amendments to several unrelated bills that are awaiting a chamber vote, a move that is threatening to derail changes related to children’s Medicaid coverage, among other things, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports.
The amendments — sponsored by Reps. David Floyd and Tim Moore — would require abortion providers to conduct an ultrasound and show the woman the image. The amendments also would require counseling prior to an abortion.
Maybe their lack of concern has something to do with the fact that the kids who have Medicaid coverage tend to be from the kind of families that are not known to be part of the GOP constituency, the economically disadvantaged:
Apply for Medicaid if you are the parent or guardian of a child who is 18 years old or younger and your family’s income is limited, or if your child is sick enough to need nursing home care, but could stay home with good quality care at home.
So fuck those people, right? It’s more important to force women to look at ultrasounds and undergo shaming “counseling”, because they couldn’t possibly make their own medical decisions without such intrusive intervention.
Conservative Values: throwing real kids under the bus in favour of a load of fetus-centric nanny-state bullshit.
