My thoughts on ways to save money for the budget.Abortion and contraceptives can help reduce the deficit?
An opinion essay by PurplePhoneixStar.
America is in a deficit and we need to cut our spending on all fronts, we all know that. I support entitlement reform to make sure that everyone who needs it can get it and those who are faking because they are too lazy to work or they want narcotics for free. Looking at things from a logical cost cutting standpoint, you would think we would want to discourage people from having kids that can't afford it. Contraceptives and even abortions are cheaper than supporting a mother and child for years on a welfare program. The standard pill only costs about 15 dollars a month and condoms are around 3 dollars for a pack of 3. Say these methods fail, the average cost of an abortion ranges from 300-600 dollars. Until week 20, there is nothing any doctor could do to save the baby if it were born then anyway, so why would an abortion be murder if the baby were born and it would die
