I’ve suggested in the past that it would be good public policy in America to offer Free Vasectomies to homeless men. (This is another shortcoming of Obamacare, but that’s a different post). This, of course, would make it much more difficult for homeless women to get pregnant and bring forth homeless babies. It’s hard to believe, but a few homeless women do so deliberately!
Not too long ago here in Boulder, CO we had the case of a homeless woman who gave birth in somebody else’s home with only a so-called midwife to provide any kind of “professional” assistance in the process. Unfortunately, the baby died just days later from a staph infection. WTF? Infant mortality from staph infections is something belonging to the Third World, not to America in the 21st Century. I don’t know whether or not this same woman is still homeless now, but here’s a post she made on Facebook late last night:
Thank you to everyone for the awesome baby shower! wonderful friends, food and gifts! after inventory all I have left for the birth that I need is a tarp and towels. if anyone can help with any of that that would be awesome!
A tarp? I need a tarp because I sleep outdoors, and if I had a real home I probably wouldn’t need one, unless I was covering my cord of firewood out back. Is this woman still homeless and getting set to deliver another homeless baby?
Geez Louise, what a befuddled race of nincompoops we humans are!
