“In the final frames of the film, Letts addresses the camera directly to say: “I don’t feel like a bad person. I don’t feel sad. I feel in awe of the fact that I can make a baby.

“I can make a life. I knew what I was going to do was right because it was right for me and no one else. I just wanna share my story.”

She can make a life and make a baby and she can also take it's life away. I'm in "awe" that she recognizes that it is a life, a baby but the abortion isn't murder.

I guess I'll have to reexamine the meaning of murder....”

“If they don't stop for them.....they are destined to die. I would think God would make it impossible for these people to procreate. Sadly, I guess that is not the case. I got out of a highly abusive relationship SOLEY to protect my child..not myself or I truly believe I would not be here today. If they can't get off the horse for their child or children, they are not going to live at all. I only wish their kids a better fate.”

“Really who can you Americans blame for this? What do you think extreme Capitalism was going to lead to?

Surprise surprise the rich get richer and the middle class and poor get poorer.

Made in India, made in China... call centers have all been moved to India. Cheap cheap cheap. Why should my BIG AMERICAN company support it's people and country by hiring locally when they can hire people from third world countries for a fourth of the price. Why should we have this made in America when it can be made in China for next to nothing.

Why doesn't your government tax the rich more instead of the middle class? Right, what do rich Americans care about mothers who can't afford health care, middle class children who can't get medical treatment because parents can't afford it. Why would the rich give a hoot about mothers and maternity leave... It's a me, myself and I country. Funny how you are called the United States when there is nothing UNITED about it.”

Death Of Tortured 4-Year-Old Boy Myls Dobson Shows Agency Missed Red Flags: Report

“Over the past 10 years, more than 20,000 American children are believed to have been killed in their own homes by family members. That is nearly four times the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The child maltreatment death rate in the US is triple Canada's and 11 times that of Italy. Millions of children are reported as abused and neglected every year. Why is that?

Part of the answer is that teen pregnancy, high-school dropout, violent crime, imprisonment, and poverty - factors associated with abuse and neglect - are generally much higher in the US.

Geography matters a lot in determining child well-being. Take the examples of Texas and Vermont.

Texas prides itself in being a low tax, low service state. Its per capita income places it in the middle of the states, while its total tax burden - its willingness to tax itself - is near the bottom.

Vermont, in contrast, is at the other extreme. It is a high-tax, high-service state.

In looking at key indicators of well-being, children from Texas are twice as likely to drop out of high school as children from Vermont. They are four times more likely to be uninsured, four times more likely to be incarcerated, and nearly twice as likely to die from abuse and neglect.”
