    Why do right wingers, like Mike Huckabee, fight to force poor people, who they seem to despise, to have babies, but complain when a millionaire, such as Natalie Portman, has one when she could afford to take care of dozens?

    How many of those poor women aren't married? Yet the right wants to force them to have a baby they can't take care of? But they complain about Portman? And she wants the kid? Can someone explain this to me?



    "My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed! You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.”

    – Andre Bauer, lieutenant governor of South Carolina
    and candidate for S.C. governor

    If the right is so concerned about those babies, why don't they adopt more?

    Huckabee is keeping his name in the media because he has a book to sell.
    He's no more running for president than I am. Like Gingrich, Huckabee is raising money to pay the mortgage.

    It is if you pretend you're raising money to run for president.

    Link to his remarks? Your interpretations leave a great deal to be desired.

    his actual comments were about her having a kid without a husband. this is pretty much universally acknowledged to be not in the best interests of the child. The way it is supposed to work is you make a commitment, you get married, then you have a baby. In that order. Making the baby first before marriage or commitment leaves the kid unprotected.

    Just because she has a ton of money is only mildly better than if she were living on food stamps in a small trailer. Money is not a replacement for a father.

    Adoption isn't that easy.
    It costs a bomb
    There are huge court costs, huge social worker visits. And righties do adopt. Like Ben Stein or Ronald Reagan. And Jesse Helms and John McCain and Senator Hutcheson of TX
