Would you be in favor for a law that gives free medical and prenatal care including short term disability to any woman that opts for adoption instead of abortion?

Not "any" woman.  But, I would definitely be in support of providing it for those who did not have adequate coverage.

You are supposing that all abortions are a "service" to the poor women who just can't afford to raise a child.

Not at all.

But a factor for ar least some women in the decision between abort or adopt is cost, isn't it?

I definitely think it is a factor.

 

One possible issue would be abuse of the program.....would some women get pregnant and give the child up for adoption to get the disability payout and free health care.  I don't know the answer to this, but it would not surprise me.

Go ahead and kill your kid if thats what you think is the right thing to do.  Not all conservatives are picketing outside of abortion clinics.

I agree with Hatter that such a plan would be easy to abuse, but yes I would generally agree to something like that.  It would certainly have the potential to reduce the number of abortions.

Are saved lives worth a small amount of abuse and tax money?

yeah there is going to be an epidemic of women getting pregnant and carrying to term only to give up their child for "free healthcare and disability"

 

there are people who post on this board who believe that elective abortion is one of the most outlandish, abhorrent, unjustifiable evils our society permits.  i can't speak for anyone else, but if i held that belief, i don't think "omg muh tax dollars!1  potential for marginal amounts of abuse!" would be much of a deterrent.

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
