For the second year in a row, Illinois taxpayers are set to fund a record number of abortions at county health facilities. One hospital reports a 78 percent increase over four years. Stroger Hospital in Cook County, Ill., one of the largest urban health care providers in Chicago, performs about 4,000 abortions a year — and bills taxpayers more than $1 million a year for those abortions. Illinois is also one of 17 states that funds most or all abortions for Medicaid recipients.
Last week, I came across this piece of information. Should entire community be taxed for certain personal value choices? Abortion is a controversial topic. Prolifers do not want to share prochoicer’s health expense. In order to have the choice concerning unborn children, pro-choice advocates want to legislate state wide laws. But why should entire population has to stand by for few individual choices? Those want the choice should be willing to pay for it also! They spend millions in promoting their ideology and promiscuity as a result, but do not want to share hapless mothers who are seeking abortion.
