You would think that the Supreme Court seeming pretty much okay with state laws forcing girls to bear their rapists’ spawn would create a tidal wave of revulsion. But that would involve “norms,” which are apparently in short supply.

The data cited about maternal deaths among Black women comes from the CDC website. As many of you probably know already, the US has the highest rate of maternal death among developed nations. The $233,610 cost of raising a child is from a widely-cited USDA study announced in 2015. That figure does not account for inflation.
