Lets see they want to make it so all access out of being a baby maker are sealed off and at the same time cut most if not all funding to support needy children.

Breed them but don't feed them? What kind of logic is that?

It makes good sense to give women the best health care possible when they are pregnant. A good beginning means a positive ending. If we want healthy babies, we need healthy mothers.
