    So let me get this straight — Americans don't let women have the right the choose for abortions but don't support them when they do choose to keep the baby? Wow, I feel bad for you guys.

    Just move to Canada. Free health care, almost a year of paid parental leave, no Donald trump, why stay in the US when you can get bagged milk and all these other things too!

    Oh yeah Sweden is totally the best……….. a bunch of confused genderless people who sadly got swept up into some weird trend about being gay, RIP Sweden, your legacy live on forever

    The reason we don't give you money for being pregnant Is that if you are responsible people you would be married both have jobs that can support your family. P.S. it's to discourage you from becoming a single parent but sometimes it's unavoidable like a disease or accident

    "Maternity leave? But Janet, I have meningitis and I still came in to not do my job."
    An accurate representation.
