Who Needs The Pawn Shop?
You can just sell your baby to the state of Texas! The stunningly brilliant Texas Senator Dan Patrick is sponsoring S.B. 1567, a bill that was referred to the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee on Wednesday. It calls for the health department to "develop a program to encourage pregnant women to place their children for adoption rather than have an abortion... The program must include a $500 payment to each woman who is a resident of this state and a citizen of the United States who places a child for adoption rather than have an abortion." Obviously it's ridiculous and just another thing to make getting an abortion even harder than it already is. But I suppose it's creative!
