What happens after abortion is prevented?

If you are a pro-life/anti-abortion advocate, does your religious/moral/civic responsibility cease after the child is born? Does your religious/moral civic responsibility include making sure the child has access to proper nutrition and health care? As the child grows does your responsibility include making sure that the child has access to a proper education? What if the child is of a different religion, ethnicity or skin color? Do you still have a responsibility to see that the child can grow up in safe surroundings? Should any child have to go hungry at night, be denied proper health care or be bullied because he or she is perceived to be different?

Does your pro-life advocacy only serve to prevent abortions from taking place, or are you also prepared to accept religious/moral/civic responsibility for the child that is born?
