To the Editor: Comments on anti-abortion law

In light of the anti-abortion law passed in Alabama, I have written the following proposal to Rep. Kevin McCarthy:

“In those states that pass laws preventing abortion for rape and incest, Congress should pass a law that requires the state government to pay for prenatal care, child care until the child is 18 (or age 26 in the event of disability), maternity leave and a clothing allowance and educational allowance to age 26 with inflation cost-of-living increases.’’
