Everything has a pricetag. And now so does every one.
CNS News reports:
Unborn babies who have reached at least 20 weeks of age in utero are aborted at a rate of about 30 per day in the United States, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The CBO has also concluded that aborting babies at 20 weeks or later in pregnancy saves money for the government-run federal-state Medicaid system.Somehow, the CBO states that 30 late-term abortions a day is "relatively small."
The CBO made these determinations when doing its official “Cost Estimate” of a federal bill that would prohibit abortions at 20 weeks or later into pregnancy (except in cases of reported rape, incest against a minor or to save the life of the mother).
“Based on data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), CBO estimates that, each year, about 11,000 abortions take place 20 weeks or more after fertilization,” said the CBO’s analysis of H.R. 1797, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act...
“H.R. 1790 would result in increased spending for Medicaid,” says CBO. “Since a portion of Medicaid is paid for by state governments, CBO estimates that state spending on the program would increase by about $170 million over the 2014-2023 period.”
Relative to what? That's a heckuva' lot higher than the murder rate in Detroit and believe me that ain't relatively small.
This reminds me of those who are cool with sterilizing women on welfare because it'll be a great cost-cutting measure. Or that's why we're now cool with starving the elderly. Because it makes smart fiscal sense. You're not going to get anything productive out of them anymore so they're just seen as a loss leader. You see, with big government the humanity gets lost.
It's just horrible.
