Re: Why are so many scientists dems and not republican

In reply to:

The antagonism toward having the govt pay for abortions is perplexing.

It's a perfect example of the divide in this forum. One side believes it is the government's duty to take care of everyone. The other side believes in personal responsibility.

If you believe in government run universal healthcare then it makes sense for abortions to be covered.

If you disagree with government run universal healthcare then you are left scratching your head wondering why someone who decided not to keep the baby is asking tax payers for money. If it is not life threatening then pony up and cover your medical bills. If you don't like paying for abortions, don't get pregnant. Back to personal responsibility.
