Anti-Abortion But Pro-Child Abuse

Guess which state I'm talking about, go on, guess. The most ultra-conservative, the most gun-loving, the most bible-thumping...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Newly released federal figures show a sharp rise in child abuse fatalities in the U.S., with the bulk of the increase occurring in two states - Indiana and Texas - where child-welfare agencies have been in disarray.

According to a report released this week by the Department of Health and Human Services, there were 1,700 fatalities resulting from child maltreatment reported in fiscal year 2016, compared to 1,589 the previous year - a 7 percent increase. The figures encompass data from every state but Maine, as well as from the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Accounting for most of the increase were Texas, where fatalities jumped from 162 to 217, and Indiana, where the death toll more than doubled from 34 to 70.

Yes, the state trying the HARDEST to outlaw abortion is also the state with the highest child abuse death rates. AND, in this period of blindingly stupid ultra-ultra-conservatism abusers are having a fucking FIELD DAY. They must love the fact that the crackdown on women and women's rights means more fodder for their pedo-mill.

But that's pretty much how the story goes: the fanatical pro-life brigade couldn't give two shits about the child being born. They're keen to stand out in the cold and demand that women be slaves to their reproductive systems, but as for the suffering of the child after it's born? Fuck no. No interest. No investment. No love.

Frankly if I were going to get beaten, raped, abused or murdered as a toddler I'd much rather not be born at all. But pro-lifers aren't really about the babies, they're about themselves and their desire to be "above" others. They're selfish fuckwads who could care less about a child's quality of life than their morality metrics.

Pro life: because the only life you care about is your own.
