Are you giving personal exemptions to the parents of the unborn, and child tax credits upon conception?  Increases in food stamps?  Free access to childhood healthcare programs?

Good point, a lot of people do resent their neighbors - for all sorts of reasons.

Well since you put it that way ...

Riddle me this ...

How come if you would say, shoot a pregnant woman and kill the fetus, regardless of whether or not the woman survives, you get charged with murder of the fetus.

But a woman can kill or abort the fetus herself and it's no big deal.

How is that since a fetus is not considered a person yet ?

It's not just the 11 states. They are laying the groundwork to declare a fetus as a person. They will then have a federal ban overruling other states.  Is it hypocrisy?  Are you surprised?

Yeah, I knew that was your point essentially; I got to it in my last sentence.  Some of those states also have the highest per capita numbers of welfare (SNAP) recipients, though those numbers jump around for different factors and times.  But there is an irony to the disdain for the Federal govt coming from some people who depend on it so largely.

To be fair, FEMA allotments are determined primarily by natural disasters - or projected natural disasters - not political affiliations.  However many of the outspoken critics of FEMA are from states which often need it most.

Yeah, to be fair: why are the other states trying so hard? After all, the USSR doesn't exist any more. It might be fine for the USA to change.

Good luck to you all. Meanwhile, the rest of the nation gets to keep on keeping on with putting up with that racist, misogynist mindset.


What's truly amazing about these states (to generalize...not all of them hit all of the following targets)..

They take more than they give to the federal government.

They are the least educated

They have higher representation in national elections and the senate (per person)

Have higher opiod use,

Canceled medicare expansion in their states which lead to huge Obamacare enrollment,

Depend on FEMA when things get tough

Have the highest incarceration rates

Have the highest murder rates

And yet are the least happy places to live.

I'm with ya'... don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

Surprised at the viciousness with which this demented party has come to utterly hate women. 

Personhood for a fetus should therefore include:
1. SS#
2. Immediate child support by DNA proven Baby Daddy
3. Two votes at the ballot box
4. An 'Assistant Driver's License'
5. Child Tax credit (from day of conception)
