I have mixed feelings on this issue, but a friend just told me about a phenomenon she encounters at work and i thought it was interesting.
I live in Arizona, as does my friend. she works at a group home for teen girls. they end up there because they were in foster care or juvinille detention and became pregnant. Because all of them are legally wards of the state they cannot get abortions. Now i dont know if this is because AZ requires parental consent and the state doesnt consent, or if it is because their health care and expenses are paid by the state and the state won't pay for it. I'm apt to think its the latter.
-what do you think of this?
-Does your pro-life/pro-choice stance change if the state is supposed to foot the bill?
