Then why do Republicans oppose universal prenatal healthcare?
Why do Republicans oppose a first world parental leave policy?

Some of us do, some of us don't oppose those things.
I don't care much about those issues.
The case against government run charity is (1)) that many studies have shown long terms harm to those receiving government charity, as opposed to private charity.
Look at who cares for the poorest people
In your city, for pregnant women and new moms through private charity: it's Christians. Often Republicans.
(3). Look at the personal giving rates of the GOP versus Dems. Ever done THAT? The evidence is clear Republicans care more, as evidenced by individuals' giving habits.
Additionally, I worry about the sustainability of these programs with W, Obama and Trump all spending money like crackheads or Paris Hilton.
In our town, a few thousands refugees were just released. The vast majority were just passing through to get to their sponsors. Private donors and religious charities ponied up ALOT of money and everyone was cared for. NONE was the government. It was beautiful.
Just last week, the city council decided they wanted to help, like 6 weeks later. Private charity beats public assistance so often. And private donors are slow to advertise that.
And private charity led, and often leads, the way. Private charity is more nimble and helps the recipients more.
