Supreme Court Refuses To Block Texas Abortion Restrictions

Commented Nov 20, 2013 at 05:17:37 in Politics

“Why do courts seem to enjoy making decisions that appear to punish the poor more than the rich? Are these justices counting on poor women to take on the job of repopulating the Caucasian race? Are these justices not aware that every woman and man that create a pregnancy are not always responsible enough to be parents? But then again pregnancy is a way to keep people poor. Perhaps that is the reason for this decision. You can't turn the clock back, more people have got to figure out how to LIVE IN and ACCEPT Today.”
