I have to say those that I know that are and have actively tried for a baby can afford one. I don't run in a wealthy circle. Guess we just know different people. They either are ttc because they know they are ready for one or more or they take birth control and have access to birth control (you know because we all have insurance here and all).
70% of the U.S. population now lives in a state where same-sex marriage is legal. At 36 and counting!
Creator as in God???? Really????
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
yes and "Their" creator can mean about 1 million things.
RG said "our creator" which is not so. We don't all hold the same belief in who our Creator is.
A) The Declaration of Independence is not the Constitution. The DofI neither gives nor protects rights, it was a historical document that declared indepence from GB.
B) I actually like the idea that the DoI sets forth that all humans have certain rights, simply by being human. It doesn't bother me that they say "by their Creator" because that's what they believed, but I think that the main point is not the "by their Creator" part, but the idea that all people have certain rights, no matter who they are or where they live, simply by virtue of being human. I like that. Way to go, Founding Fathers!
