omg you can’t just ask people why they’re ignorant
^THAT. THAT IS THE COMMENT OF THE YEAR.
Because the right to have an abortion and being forced by your government to finance the irresponsibility of others are two completely separate issues.
And you just assume that people are being irresponsible and penciling in their abortions right after their manis and pedis.
In Canada, we have this wonderful thing called Universal Healthcare. Perks include not having to avoid going to the doctor for life-saving, preventable care because you simply can’t afford it. It also means that if you have a heart attack, that you don’t have to worry about your insurance company screwing you with the bill and saying “sorry, since you had a paper cut when you were 7, you had a pre-existing condition and therefore we won’t cover you”.
Also, if you’re going to claim fiscal responsibility for your oppositional stance, then I suggest you check out how much it costs for prenatal health care and labour/delivery versus how much it costs for an abortion. Way more expensive to carry to term, but don’t let facts get in your way.
Now since we have this wonderful, magical thing known as Universal Healthcare we can also support people who do choose to carry to term. People who would otherwise not be able to afford prenatal care and labour/delivery, can now carry the pregnancy to term since they don’t have to worry about going into debt while simultaneously trying to provide for a new baby.
So stfu, you don’t know what you’re talking about.
