In response to “Politics and Personhood” (May 1, 2012 issue)

It is highly ironic that the same people who want to force scads of children into this world are the folks who would deny welfare benefits to those very same children and their mothers.

It seems their interest ends once the kid exits the uterus. The kids then become “anchor” babies and the spawn of welfare moms. After all the flapdoodle over the Catholic Church wanting to impose their religious beliefs on their employees in the form of denying contraceptive coverage to women, I would really love to know how much of an ado they have made over male contraception, e.g., vasectomies covered by those same insurance companies. I know they are against birth control, but do they really practice what they preach when it comes to men?
