Hurray for pro-choice Christians!

bebinn:

The Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas donated over $440,000 to Planned Parenthood South Texas this year, alongside other generous donations to dozens of healthcare providers.

Case in point: The U.S. middle class, long considered one of the most affluent in the world, is falling behind its global counterparts, namely Canada.

Canada has steadily outperformed the U.S. in after-tax income in the bottom earning percentiles. Publicly available data from the LIS Cross-National Data Center and the New York Times shows that, for the first time in more than 30 years, the Canadian middle class earns just as much as the median bracket of Americans.
