    That is so false and so stupid that it makes my brain hurt.

    Written by a fanatic so pro-abortion that he/she will say anything - false, slanderous, stupid - to make pro-life people look evil.

    No one in my camp of pro-lifers have laughed at any hungry children or disabled children.

    This is yellow journalism at its darkest hue.

    Do you support re-instituting the cuts in food stamps?

    Do you support expanding health care for poor children?

    If I may, this reads as a logical fallacy known as appeal to emotion. The question should be: what is the reasoning behind these positions, and is the reasoning valid or not.
    Do most people who hold these positions want to see people suffer? Probably not. So then, they must have other reasons. Once these reasons are presented they can be discussed on their own merits.
    Point being, trying to bring down the other argument by assuming the worst about them is dishonest practice. It is the argument presented by the other side that needs to be attacked and not the person or people making it.

    Gun violence doesn't kill people, violent people with guns kill people.
    No one is denied health care. Anyway, I thought Obamacare fixed that problem.

    The only thing worth laughing at is the OP, it might be just slightly biased.
