The rest of the developed world looks on us with appalled amazement that there's even a debate about universal health care. People die from lack of health care. Children die. Unborn babies die. How is it that the same people who call themselves "pro-life" and are against a woman's right to choose are just fine with the death of a fetus due to lack of pre-natal care? It's not really about the baby, is it? It's about punishing women for having sex and it's about punishing families for being poor. Shame on our society. Shame.
The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
