Instead of providing the easiest possible way for irresponsible, self-involved crack whores & their ilk to dispose of unwanted babies... how about we just pay them up front not to have them at all?
Dr. Geoffrey Cundiff, head of the hospital's obstetrics and gynecology department, said he wanted a way for troubled mothers to leave their babies safely and anonymously at the hospital instead of abandoning them on the street.Now, I can appreciate where Dr. Cundiff is coming from... but let's face it... this is a finger in the dyke... and, more to the point... doesn't stop anyone from doing this over & over again.
And hey... I love the use of the word "troubled." Call me a knuckle-draggin' neocon, but if you're dumping newborns on the street... you're not troubled, you're a stone sociopath.
So... two words... tubal ligation.
How about a tax-free five thousand dollar payout, no questions asked, to anyone who chooses to go this route? It's certainly a more permanent solution to this horrific problem... and compared to trying to save, take care of & place all those unwanted newborns... a simpler, more sensible way to go.
Or, I guess you can just throw in with Hillary & Iggy & Jack Layton... and start building abortion clinics all over the place.
I just think my way is better.
