The "pro-life" approach, standing on one foot

I'm just copying this verbatim from a comment that I posted on Facebook:


"The "pro-life" approach is an interesting combination of sexism and a refusal to acknowledge that "it takes a village to raise a child." Basically, what the "pro-life" proponents are saying is that the only person responsible for a child in any way is the mother. As long as the child is still in utero, the only one "taking care" of the baby is the mother. But the minute the baby is born, suddenly the child needs health care, perhaps daycare, and an education. All of a sudden, the child's care requires money. So, yeah, "follow the money" right out of any interest in ensuring that the baby, once born, is actually cared for."
