"....children born to mothers living in areas that had more than 125 natural gas wells per mile had a 30 percent greater prevalence of congenital heart defects. The kids were also twice as likely to have had a neural tube defect than children born to mothers who lived with no wells within 10 miles of their homes."

The GOP says people can make more on welfare so why would they work, well then raise minimum wage higher, human nature will drive those freeloaders off the couch. And really there are a lot of peope working that make so little they qualify for welfare, this would lift a few of them off that as well. And another thing, the GOP is working overtime to cut birthcontrol at the same time they want women off welfare, make up your mind then to support a pro-natalist policies for mothers with leave for birth and they still have the job to come back to.
