There is one senator here in Wisconsin named Glenn Grothman who is proposing a bill that states that .
OK, Glenn...You sure look like someone that understands what being a single parent is. You sure know what a single parent goes through to provide for their child. Yet, somehow we do it. This proposal of yours talks about the welfare that single parents are on. What welfare? I am on NO state assistance. I make too much. None.
You need to know something, Glenn Grothman, I am a single mom because I CHOSE to be. I know, shocking. I chose my son. I adopted him out of the foster care system. Lots of single parents do this each and every day, and take children that WERE abused and neglected out of that situation.
The same goes for gay parents, who were also names in your little proposal as a "family values" issue. Well, these people that are lacking such values have taken in children and a lot have adopted them. These are children that would not have had somewhere to go. There are not enough "marital" homes for them!
How about instead of focusing on single parents who are busy working their behinds off to support their children you focus on getting people the services and education they need to PREVENT unwanted pregnancies so that they do not feel that they need an abortion, do not abuse their children, or neglect them. If they could prevent an unwanted pregnancy that would take care of this issue.
Get off your high horse.
