[Gif of George Carlin doing stand-up, raising his left middle finger. Captions read. “Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.]

Case in point: While Republicans in the Texas Senate were trying to push through a "prolife” anti-abortion law, the state was also preparing to execute Kimberly McCarthy, the 500th person to be executed in the sate since 1982. See also: School closings, abstinence only sex ed, tying food stamp and welfare programs to the performance of children in school, etc
