Put aside unborn children for a moment – let’s talk about the children already here who Republicans have abandoned
As children continue to be detained – imprisoned, really – across the country without their parents, I can’t help but think of the conservatives’ insistence that they’re “pro-life”. Let’s not even get into the women that will die should abortion become illegal; let’s talk about the children who are already here, who are suffering, who Republicans have abandoned.
Reports have come out of children with lice, bed bug bites, and emotional trauma. Children who haven’t been bathed in weeks or more. Children who are being forcibly injected with drugs to keep them docile.
