‘Enact the Second Amendment’: WV GOPer wants to ban child support because it can lead to abortions


Chris Pritt has his own law firm, Pritt Law, where he specializes in divorce, custody and child support litigation. But before the West Virginia state legislature, his argument was a linguistic pretzel to justify eliminating all child support for the parent who gets custody of a child.

According to Pritt, there are fathers who don’t want to get involved in their children’s lives.

“If she continues with the pregnancy, he may have some sort of child support obligation,” Pritt said. “And, so, what he wants to do is he wants to – in a way – encourage her to go find a way for her to have an abortion. Because he knows that a certain individual – if he has any kind of familiarity with her, he knows she might be in such a state of mind, she must be in such a vulnerable position that it’s not worth all that he’s going to put me through to go through with this pregnancy. be better, for me to just go and end this ‘life.’ So she goes to Virginia or some other state where she goes and has an abortion. So I think that’s is a very clear possibility if we enact the Second Amendment here, I don’t want to do anything that encourages thugs to go get you an abortion.”

It is unclear what he means by referring to the Second Amendment.

Parents who fight to not get child support for the child they are raising don’t make it. Single parents are usually strapped for money and any ability to secure the other parent to help is important. Having financial support is generally more of an incentive to have a child, as the main reason given by women for having an abortion is financial.
