How does the NDP win over at least soft pro-life advocates by adopting policies that give parents who want to keep their children more options?
Among some options I could see:
1. Provide quality education for all. We could look at year-round schooling for nine years starting at the age of 5, followed by two years of college to learn a trade or profession before the age of 18. This would ensure all above the age of 18 have the ability to earn a decent wage. This would also alleviate the pressure on the parents of 5 year olds and up to ahve to find baby sitters, summer schools, or summer camps for their children.
2. Provide day care in schools for student parents.
3. Provide day care for all working parents with no stay-at-home partner and who fall below a particular wealth line.
4. Manage the overall economy well.
Some might also say that it's the woman's fault. But first off, it takes two to tango. Secondly, not always was the tango mutually agreed to. So who are we to question how or why she got pregnant. Who's to say a woman could not be a victim of rape, yet choose to keep the child and feel uncomfortable discussing how she got pregnant?
Certainly the woman ought to get support even if only for the child's sake, without the government prying too much into how or why she got pregnant.
Any ideas on this as a means of winning over some soft pro-life voters?
