  1. it’s just part of the package with killing baby’s. Destroying their life if they happened to miss getting whacked in the womb in the backup plan. What a bunch of sick F’Ks we have ruining this state. Not much better can be said of those who keep electing them. This is why I live on a secluded dirt road with only my family as neighbors.
