Isn't it ironic? The US Servicemen are over in the Middle East fighting and dying to bring them Democracy, and the United States Government is continually taking away our rights. Personally, I think religion and politics should not mix.. I interpret this Bill to say that the Government feels that the average American is unable to care properly for their children.
Looks like it passed in the House, but thank goodness there are a handful of Senators that are fighting for the average American.
