What is the proper ratio of help for the dead versus the unborn?

Illinois Could Drastically Cut Burials For The Poor, Pastors Protest

As one who does not care what happens to my body after death, though I joke about wanting it distilled, that the state pays for burials and funerals appears silly. Wouldn't we be better off taking care of the living? But since only the living can vote, apparently many of the living care more about the dead than the living or at least more about how caring for the dead make the living feel relative to caring for the living. After all, the dead can't care for themselves, but the living can. But don't the responsible dead plan for their demise while still living?
