Poverty makes its mark before the age of three

by

Check out this FT article reporting on new studies in poverty. Unhealthy levels of stress hormones in young children living in poverty impair neural development, causing damage more severe and irreversible than inadequate nutrition or environmental toxins.

THIS HAPPENS IN AMERICA. Whether you’re Christian, Muslim, Agnostic, Atheist, Jewish, Conservative, Liberal, Anarchist, Libertarian, or other, if you believe in the sanctity of life and that all people deserve a chance, this should be the important policy issue; young children barely born and poverty mars them for life. The science is there. 

Yet the people remain quiet. Why is abortion a passionate issue for conservative Christians while this isn’t? Why do Obama and Clinton focus more on the middle class?
