"The Babies We Don't Care About Today," Laurie Penny on Democracy Now !

British journalist Laurie Penny, a critic of the royal baby hoopla whose latest article, "The Babies We Don't Care About Today," was published in the New Statesman.

 "We can estimate that at least 700 babies were born into poverty on the day that the 'Royal Baby' was born," Penny says. "

And at the moment, the British government is taking measures to make life harder for those children, particularly the children of single parents and teenage, single mothers.

 I want to live in a country where all babies matter and where all families matter."
