Mo. Panel's Report Links Immigration To Abortion

A Republican-led legislative panel says in a new report on illegal immigration that abortion is partly to blame because it is causing a shortage of American workers.

The report from the state House Special Committee on Immigration Reform also says that "liberal social welfare policies" have discouraged Americans from working and have encouraged immigrants to cross the border illegally.
All 10 Republican committee members signed the report, while the six Democrats did not. Some of the Democrats called the abortion assertion ridiculous and embarrassing.
"Suggestions for how to stop illegal hiring varied without any simple solution," the report states. "The lack of traditional work ethic, combined with the effects of 30 years of abortion and expanding liberal social welfare policies have produced a shortage of workers and a lack of incentive for those who can work."
Gee, where does one start with such imbecilic aspersions? I'll start here: There are over 13 million Americans out of work (the actual number is much higher due to the way the stats are munged) and these freakin' Republicans (notice that no Dems agreed) say it is because of abortion and we're just too lazy! ... ... ... (sorry, I had to take a moment to stop screaming epithets and calm down enough to type again.)

Americans are out of work because the government (Dems and Repubs) are happily shipping our jobs out of the country. (Hey, the politicians have work, mandated cost of living increases, health care for them and their families, very generous retirement, and can give themselves raises ... you'd almost think they're out of touch with the way the rest of us live.)

The minimum wage in this country hasn't increased since 1994! At $5.15/hour you would make less than $11k/year. With no benefits. A person might be able to survive on that (if they don't get sick, want to go to college, have a family, or even date in hopes of having a family.)

I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say we have "certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."

Get it? Got it!? Good!
