Put pregnancy prevention first

The Spokesman-Review

The recent demands on Congress regarding “government health care,” to include the cost of abortions, are cooperating with a lack of expecting individual responsibility.

It is a cost the government should not assume. Responsibility to avoid the need for abortion should be upheld. Providing government funding does not encourage responsibility.

I have read that teenage “kids” are getting pregnant. Whatever “education” is provided is not successful. This “old” parent educator suggests more successful preventive education is needed.
