Will A Vote For Mitt Romney Mean More Abortions?

Public Discourse tackles this  arguemnt at Poverty, Abortion, and Budgets: Democrats for Life Need Better Arguments

Romney has already declared war on the 47% of Americans who he sees as unproductive parasites who draw SS, Medicare, Medicaid, AFDC, food stamps, Section 8 housing, etc. While most of these are the elderly, there are very significant numbers of poverty stricken children in that number. Of course women are more likely to abort a pregnancy when she and her existing children are facing starvation. It is an incontrovertible fact that if Romney is elected with a strong Republican majority in Congress, he is going to throw billions of dollars at the other billionaires who put him in office without any regard to the multiplying deficits of the already bankrupt government) just like Ronald Reagan and George W Bush did before him. Then he will open the floodgates of cheap Mexican labor to be exploited by these cronies. He will get the USA bogged down in foreign military adventurism to reward the "contractors" who are paying the costs of his campaign. We have lived through this over and over again, so we know exactly what will happen. The wealthy are going to have abortions according to their own desires, but most women will only have abortions because of the economic oppression and exploitation which the Republicans hope to inflict upon them.

I am not sure Romney is going to open the floodgates fro Mexican labor. This is one area I disagree with him on but he seems pretty anti that idea

You seem to forget that politicians speak with a forked tongue. Ronald Reagan did not get elected by telling voters that he was going to grant amnesty to 3 million illegal immigrants, but he made sure that his cronies had plenty cheap foreign laborers who are much easier to exploit than Americans. But the amnesty is hardly relevant when unethical business owners are able to flood the country with illegal immigrants, and operate their businesses with exploited illegal immigrants with impunity. I was driving through Illinois, on the way to either Chicago or Indianapolis, shortly after the 2003 invasion of Iraq and listening to their local news on the radio. There had been a rumor among the illegal immigrants who made the MRE's for a military contractor company in that area that an immigration crackdown was going down, so they did not go to work. The officials of the Bush administration were on the radio, giving assurance that this rumor was not true, saying that their labor was essential to getting the food made for the troops in Iraq, and saying as to how they could go to work without any fear of being deported. The unemployment rate among American citizens was 6.3% at that time.
