I have some questions for both the Riverton City Council and the state of Alabama. Recently, you both have passed resolutions and laws which you claim fight for the rights of the unborn.

However, how many of these unborn come into the world in poverty because their parents don’t make a living minimum wage? Whose parents can’t afford to go to college? Can’t afford basic child care?

How many of these kids must sit in overcrowded and underfunded school systems? How many breathe in toxic and polluted air? Drink contaminated water? How many have zero access to affordable health care? And how many could get sick from the other kids in their class who aren’t getting vaccinated?

Just curious.
