Cost/Benefit analysis on … Abortion in North Carolina

That’s right, a North Carolina legislative panel actually had a discussion that concerned the “extra cost” to the state if a woman elected to have a baby as compared to the cost of an abortion. What do you say to this?

2009 New York City abortion rate review – residents and non-residents

The Internet is buzzing this morning with the 40 percent figure, so I figured I would take a look at the New York City report myself. There has been some question concerning the residency of those mothers in the report, and I’m going to try and dig into that here.

The state and abortion: the shape of things to come?

Is it wrong for me to assume most government bureaucrats are lefties and thus carry the usual lefty baggage with them, including, it’s not a life, it’s a clump of cells, it’s not a heart beat, it’s a heart tone? Make no mistake, government bureaucrats will never view someone else’s life in the same manner as they view their own. Make no mistake, when you put your life in the hands of a bureaucrat you get the latest lefty  ideology. Maybe I’m not being fair, maybe?

From the Philly.com via Ed Morrissey at Hot Air and please take the time to read his take and the entire article on philly.com:

A DEPARTMENT OF Human Services caseworker pressured a pregnant Mayfair teenager to undergo a late-term abortion by threatening to take away either her toddler or her unborn baby if she had the child, according to the teen’s foster mother.

The alleged strong-arm tactic happened one day after DHS learned of the pregnancy, when the girl was about 22 weeks pregnant, according to her foster mother and the girl’s social worker, Marisol Rivera.

That’s just the beginning of what the Daily News is reporting in Philadelphia. If all of this is as they report, it is just about the saddest thing I have ever read.

By the time DHS arranged for the abortion – in March – the girl was 24 weeks pregnant. She had to undergo the procedure in New Jersey because abortions in Pennsylvania are illegal at 24 weeks …

Rivera, the girl’s social worker, said that she was fired by Concilio, which subcontracted with DHS to provide care, after she initially refused to accompany the teen for the abortion.

“They hired me to work in child protection, not to kill children,” Rivera told the Daily News.

I wish I could tell that that is where the story ends, but it does not. DHS, ostensibly the state office charged with protecting children apparently does this on a regular basis.

Abortions are a little-known aspect of DHS’s oversight of children in its custody.

Between September 2006 and March 31, Schwarz said, 335 minors under DHS care became pregnant. Of those, 119 resulted in abortions. Of those abortions, 54 were done by judge’s order.

Eight of the abortions were performed out of state, Schwarz said.

I am sure DHS’s rationalization of this type of policy is to protect the babies from having babies, the children from having children. In other words, making everyone’s life easier. Everyone that is, except the life of a seven 6 month old unborn child. Just so you know … here is what a seven 5 month fetus looks like. From physiciansforlife.org

God save us. I can assure you this reckless disregard for life in the name of budgets and saving us from ourselves (Don’t worry dear, Obamacare will take of care of grandma from here.) will permeate government run health care. Don’t believe me? Here’s Robert Reich.

Save the babies.

UPDATE: Let me just add that my mom was born at 6 months, the same age as this young child when aborted. She survived during a time when survival at this age of development was unheard of. She had four children, a former Assistant United States Attorney and first woman law partner of a major firm, an engineer, who helped re-design portions of a major metropolis’ mass transit system, an IT who works with a major bank on on-line banking, and a talk show host.

No brain surgeons, no Presidents, no captains of industry, just the children of a six month fetus. Just thought you should know.
