Funding abortions with tax dollars

I think federal Medicaid funds should pay for elective abortions in the US. It doesn't make any sense to pay for prenatal care, delivery, WIC, food stamps, childcare and all the other costs of raising a child, but not pay for the far less expensive option. I would hate to think of a woman hving a child she doesn't even really want because she can't afford to have an abortion, but if she wants to give birth she can have it completely paid for by the goverment.

I think it would be disgusting for my tax dollars to go towards killing a baby. If the woman doesn't want her child than when she has it she should give it up for adoption.

I think it's disgusting to have my tax dollars pay for some people to have baby after baby on welfare when they may not even want the children.

I concur, you have a really wonderful idea here. I think we are pretty far away from this becoming real though considering how much time and effort is put into banning abortions altogether.
