Watching "Faith & Freedom Conference"

I was struck by two thoughts while watching the Faith & Freedom Conf. on C- SPAN.
1. Republicans will fight to the death of a doctor to stop abortions but once that baby is born it's Screw'em, cut WIC, cut health care, cut anything that gives that child a chance of a positive start in life.
2. The Republican efforts, across this country, to restrict abortion and the health care options of Women seem to be rooted in the idea that Women are the property of Men. Their decisions and options will be decided by Men with the political power to impose their personal beliefs on all women.
