Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided but the Supreme Court shows no sign of correcting its mistake. That decision is here to stay and with it, the societal consequences it generates.
We’re often told that No Child Should Be Born Into Poverty. That child will suffer compared to its peers. Supporters of Roe v. Wade tell us that child should be aborted, instead, out of kindness and mercy.
It follows, then, that No Child Should Have To Grow Up In Poverty. If being born into poverty is a bad enough outcome to justify killing the child who has never known anything else, surely being thrown into poverty after a lifetime of plenty and leisure is far worse.
Children of families who suffer divorce, death, disability or sudden job loss of a breadwinner will suffer cruelly when Daddy can’t afford Summer Camp or a new car for graduation. It is inhumane to force those children to bear the deprivations and shame of poverty. It would be much kinder to put them out of their misery. Plus, it would break the cycle of generational welfare dependency.
Kill the children – for the children. It’s the Roe thing to do.
It’s not even that big a caricature of “prog” logic…
