It would be "funny" if the Uber driver reported and sued the woman he brought to the clinic, then the abortion protestor staking out the clinic did the same to the Uber driver.
You know, I'd normally agree with most of this, but based upon just Texas' foster care stats it is rather apparent that they aren't really caring about economy impacts...hell, they barely support said care financially as-is. What it does appear to be happening is the self-perpetuating cycle of creating impoverished sub-classes of populations to cover anything that their immigrant population doesn't support.
George Carlin was pretty prescient with his statements in regards to "Pro-lifers" and their disdain for anything post 9 months, pre-18 years. I mean, he pretty much predicted everything that has taken place over the last several months in regards to this whole topic...
They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.
I mean, he also did point out that Conservatives don't care about children post 9 months until they reach military age, which I'm pretty sure is also very true.
