Here is the deal.
Roger got compared to someone else and was offended.
Someone else got compared to Roger and was offended.
Me and Huntinman get compared to each other and we are proud of it (and who wouldn't be??).
Failed effort regards........
BTW--I'd be proud to be a "little Ken" as well.

"Lil' X" has been used long before you think you invented it. RK was LittleGib, I was "littleYardley" long before you have a neuronal spark.
Given your self-congratulatory nature, I have a better name in mind for you....

This presumes that the unwanted pregnancies that are aborted are primarily to low-income individuals lack the parenting skills to provide for the children that would result from those pregnancies.Imagine all the prison beds and welfare checks we would need without those contraception services alone. It is just cost effective, from a practical standpoint.
If this is a correct assumption, then wouldn't it be just as easy arrange a doctor visit for women applying for welfare (or other assistance programs) if they are of child-bearing age. Establish the best method of birth control and proceed accordingly to provide it. Is there health risk associated with many birth control methods? Yes. Is there also health risk associated with pregnancy? Absolutely.
Again, if presuming the original assumption is correct, I would guess that if a limit were placed on the stipends (no more children than you start with on welfare), the incentive would be heightened to prevent unwanted pregnancies. You could even provide a little annual "bonus" for remaining non-pregnant each year Would be a whole lot cheaper than adding all those new children to the assistance programs.
