    Theft That Will Disgust You

    Theft That Will Disgust You

    Think of the worst way we could treat poor families and foster kids, then double it.
    States are stacking welfare checks or spending it to prosecute parents
    After the state takes your kid, you get an invoice
    Then, once they have the kid in foster care, they steal their money too.
    How states spend the money we pay to help people.
    Your state's budget bullshit
    Being poor makes you a poor parent
    There are far too many kids in foster care
     
    ProPublica investigation on welfare spending

    The Realest Abortion Problem

    The Realest Abortion Problem

    The problem is that they had a say in the first place. 
    We allowed this to happen.
