There’s been an uproar in my state over Gov Northman’s abortion comments. Do you think it should be legal to abort after birth?

Don’t fully know the info, but based on the post alone... it’s literally murder.
Hope this isn’t popularized. It’s bad enough that Republicans don’t care about life after birth.

Why do you think Republicans don’t care about life after birth?

My view is this:
Republicans seem to care a lot about a fetus before it is born. They’ll make legislation, impose criminal penalties, etc. However after it’s born it’s “hands off”. They’ll turn from being intervening fully to believing “it’s none of my business”.

A big reason why many choose to abort is because they don’t have economic means to keep a child, or a child is born with a disability that will be physically and economically draining. By forcing them to have kids, you place these mothers, and kids, under economic strain. Will republicans support funding healthcare (heck for all ages), housing, WIC, etc? Not really. We all see what happened with CHiP last year.
And my point doesn’t just extend to kids. A baby in a womb about to be aborted?Intervene. A cancer patient needing a specific treatment? None of business.

It got cut off, but here’s the full last paragraph:

Uh, that’s what we would call murder.

If they vote Democrat, I am fine with it.

Nobody knows how they’ll vote in 18 years, if at all. I’m assuming you’re referring to the child.

Question did not say how long after birth

This discussion is insane! Who kills the baby?

1. Agreed
2. Does it matter?

I’ve never heard of such a procedure. How does it work?

It sounds like it will work like this. A baby is born, then made comfortable while the mother and doctor debate whether to allow the child to live. The procedure itself I haven’t heard about yet but the marine it would be similar to a late term abortion, minus the womb part.

Your comparison between abortion and murder is age old propaganda. Congratulations on propagating this new and ugly rendition.

I’m not the one proposing the bill. And how you even separate the two things, regardless of the recent outrageous push for later and later, is beyond me.

Oh there are many, many thoughts and positions that I hold that are well beyond you.

Feel free to enlighten me on why 40% of Democrats on this poll think it’s okay to kill a child after it’s born.

Sure, that’s scientific. I’m truly laughing to myself about your comment.

I’m sorry that your belief in propaganda causes you pain. Change the channel and enjoy reality. Truth is the best cure.

Thank goodness. Here I thought abortion was actually happening. Thank you for educating me.
