In politics there are a lot of people that will go to great lengths to keep abortion from happening, saying that life is precious and sacred and yatta yatta yatta. Yet those same people are the ones that are against helping the less fortunate.

I get the point of this comic, but it's pretty superficial and generally ignorant.

I think the abortion debate should be taken a lot more seriously than it is. By that I mean it shouldn't be treated as superficially and emotionally as it currently is. Right now the abortion debate is drawn down party lines, and it's been reduced to dead-end victimizing and ad-hominem rhetoric. Comics like this perpetuate that trend.

I think the reason this issue has become so heated is that both sides see themselves as the "libertarian" side. One side is defending the rights of the mother, the other is defending the rights of the child. And, technically, they're both correct even if you ignore the religious arguments .

But the abortion issue brings up a lot of important philosophical questions that should be treated with a lot more respect than they are: What constitutes life? What constitutes a human being? Where does one person's rights end and another person's rights begin? These aren't questions that you can just vote on.

Sorry to say this guys but... I see so many problems with discrimination and racism and it comes specially from USA. Hell, you guys give too many stereotypes to people. There's none of this in my country. Those things just... Doesn't exist. There is no " ******* like watermelons and chicken nuggets" and when we call them ******* (in our language of course) They don't give a single **** . Yes, black people here are not racist as well. I know this has nothing to do with pregnant women(well maybe discrimination counts) but i just wanted to say that. You people are assholes.

Uhm I don't know what country/province/nation/landmass you live in, but you better not say "Euproe".


Yeah America is SOOO Horrible when it comes to racism. *eyeroll* This this makes U.S racial problems look like a ******* Utopia.

There Was this post a week or two ago about Gypsies and all I have to say is DAMN... Like from what I saw Europeans DESPISE those people. And that's not even mentioning when they're railing on "Kebabs" or Turks or whatever, but that gets just as nasty.

Yeah you'll here about "Lel black people" etc, but We got over this level of widespread hatred in like the 70's. Are you even trying?

I'm all for abortion but **** paying for it with taxpayer money. If you act like a cumdump and then want to live off the dole because you can't understand the concept of self control then go **** yourself you leech.

the exact opposite argument could be made towards democrats. They will fight all day long to give everyone "equal opportunities" and to get rid of the death penalty, but then will turn around and so willingly support someone who wants to take the potential of life from someone.

Its shocking to me that a group of people who fight to protect the lives of convicted criminals will also fight to allow a mother to basically kill her unborn child.

But you see, the comic doesn't explain the premise for why those people are so upset in the second panel. It's not that women with babies should not be helped, but I should not be forced through taxes by the government to pay to support this child. Regardless of the circumstances of this child's conception, I had no role in it, so I should not be forced to bear any responsibility for it. However, this is not to say that a person will automatically choose NOT to support a mother in need if they are not being taxed to provide for her. It is possible to fall back on family, friends, charitable organizations, and other people that are WILLINGLY offering their support to the mother. Yes I believe life is valuable, but that does not obligate me to rectify the mistakes made by the choices one makes in their life. Many people believe without government, no one in any dire situation, be it medical wise, money wise, etc. will not receive help. But it is because the government creates all of these safety nets and drains the tax dollars from charitable people's wallets that these same charitable people choose not to give because they are made to understand that the government is already providing for the less fortunate. If we put the money back into the hands of the American people, that money could be used to help people in need here in America instead of blowing up people in the Middle East. That money would go to charitable organizations who could provide food, healthcare etc. to the less fortunate, and also to stimulating our businesses, providing many people with a job and paycheck to provide these needs for themselves. A society would be created that promotes productive individuals who can easily care for themselves AND one another, and discouraging the creation of people like the dead beat dad who walk out on mother in child either because they are afraid they cannot support them or simply do not want to take responsibility for the life that they have created.

I see you didn't read more than his first sentence.

You're missing the point. He's not talking about paying for something he doesn't use, he's talking about things draining taxes that are not necessary. For example, The ACA (Obamacare) why was it even needed? We have Medicare, Medicaid and many other government funded healthcare programs. Why create an entirely new system, which actually greatly defunds the existing ones instead of simply altering them to be more effective?

Money that goes to the government via taxes gets wasted in the bureaucracy. They say they need to raise taxes to give out unemployment checks. So they take billion of dollars from companies and employers, reducing the amount they have so they can't hire new people, or have to fire/cut hours for existing ones. Then of those billions only Millions actually make it back out into the economy.

Taxing, for ANY reason, HURTS the economy. And a strong economy helps more people than the government is capable of helping under any circumstances.

Yes some people need help, but NOT everyone. It's better to give people a shove in a direction to help themselves than to give them a hand out. Like the old adage: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

What the above comic fails to portray is repubs are the ones that prefer to teach, and dems are the ones that prefer to give.
