Just One Among Many

A certain thirty-nine-year-old man who is blatantly Pro-Life Never thought it worthwhile to take for himself the wife Confessed to me that he has ten children by the same woman He has the reproductive habits of some notable vermin! This single woman has spent her life, thus far, raising his spawn A man who never gave a thought to putting a condom on, Told me he has never changed a diaper or nursed a sick kid Or wondered where his next meal is coming from, heaven forbid! His children, classic cases of those deprived of a loving father, Will likely be a burden on society for longer than they’d rather Now consider that one of the ten might become a serial killer ~~ Wouldn’t it have been better if that one had been an abort? Be that as it may, worst is that they will continue to consort. What are pro-lifers doing to give poor kids better living styled? Seeming to care more for a collection of cells than a living child.
Written June 27, 2022 [Incidentally, this is a true account of a man I met yesterday who does yardwork for cash to avoid child support!]

I love this one! You have outed this creep. I cannot help but feel He Who Shall Not Be Named has probably paid for more abortions than most.

Oh, I would say so, Caren. Definitely!

There is a chap on the dole in Wales who has fathered over 30-children by three women, all supported by taxpayers so, of course, it makes sense to Supreme Court Justices for taxpayers to support more unwanted children! Aloha!

Well, that's precisely what is going to be the result of this "reversal" decision! Lots of young women, in desperation, will lose their life through suicide or poor treatment because they have no viable alternative, at least that they can see.

I’d bet that his story is, as you say, just one of many. Pretty outrageous to me, Milton, but we seem to be in the minority…

Oh, Ilene, I know it is. And the thing that astounded me was that he told me all this as though he had not a clue! Frankly, he left me gobsmacked. It was a couple of days before I could put it into this form.
