Why does Pete Sessions hate babies?

June 5th, 2009 (01:37 pm)

Yesterday the House voted to grant federal employees four weeks of paid parental leave. If it becomes law, that means a baby born to one or more federal employees will have four weeks of extra attention, four weeks when their parent(s) will be able to get up in the night without worrying about being a wreck at work in the morning, four weeks of bonding, maybe four weeks of breastfeeding.

Pete Sessions argued against it as too expensive: $20M/year. With 1.8M federal employees, that's about $11 per employee per year.

Pete Sessions also opposes abortion rights; he doesn't mention abortion on his House website, but he's consistently voted to make abortions harder and harder. In other words, he favors creating unwanted babies, but he's unwilling to spend a few dollars to help them grow up sane and healthy.
