Reasons why all disabled kids SHOULDNT get a service dog

- Not all disabilities require the use of a service dog to somehow compensate for it.
- This will create a shortage of service dogs for people that actually need them, namely the blind
- If the family cant pay for the service dog, then taxpayers will have to, and maintaining a service dog is expensive
- The dogs themselves may be put in harms way if a kid has a disability that makes them very violent

I think that service dogs should be free because;

* It allows people to be aware of their surroundings

* It costs too much

*They are people too, and you cant put a price on people

Con

- Being disabled doesnt necessarily = being unaware of your surroundings, which ties back to how not every disability requires the need of a service dog to compensate for it.

-The fact that they cost so much is an argument AGAINST making them free, since someone WILL have to pay for it. Just because some people are disabled, that doesnt mean that they are entitled to every ludicrously expensive and unnecessary amenity that can be granted to them.

A Vagina does require a dog to raise a child. Labrador Dog will suite you perfect.
