22. If you have ever raised a child, you would never want to see ANY child raised by someone who feels

 

feels forced to do so. You would never even suggest reducing the responsibility of parenthood to "penalty," even as leverage against these assholes.

There is no way of making them personally suffer the consequences, and forced childbearing is NEVER acceptable, any more than requiring someone to raise a child they don't want to raise. You don't make a threat of forced parenting, or forced childbearing.

That's where your OP really misses the point. If you have ever raised a child, you would never want to see ANY child raised by someone who feels forced to do so. You would also never tolerate forcing a woman to give birth - especially to "teach someone else a lesson."

Furthermore, in what scenario does a party with a supermajority ever "compromise" with the minority party on passing a bill? Would you ever see Democrats tolerating Democrats "compromising" with Republicans on a bill where they didn't need to in order to get it passed?

They think that women will stop having sex if they can't get contraception, or access to safe, legal abortion. They are MORE than happy to own that, just as they are more than happy to cut funding for food assistance for families.
