Every single time I talk to someone who is anti-abortion, I never hear any kind of financial activism for foster care, education, after-school activities, access to school lunch, etc. Once the baby is born, their whole demeanor is “See you later, sucker!” Blows my mind. It is also why I can never take them seriously. And the topic of contraception has even more crickets to add on to complaints about poor people having too many babies without fathers. Their entire outlook on parenthood is bizarre to me.
