~looks in my broke azzs wallet ~

I am grateful everyday for my children , every single one of them , I am poor , and planned out the last pregnancy (which turned into twins , dangnabit i did not get what i ordered )
Poor is getting closer and closer to many of you high horse sitting people . and kids take years to reach school age and fortunes change .

i know there are people milking the system , i see it everyday down here , but large families do not = poor leaches.

I don't know the OP's situation, maybe she is on assistance, maybe she is just broke because she is saving money. Who knows...

People who continue to have children while on assistance just doesn't sit well with me. IMO, if your first (or second, third, etc) child has to suffer so that you can support another child, you probably don't need one. Why have two kids and only give them the basics when you can have one and give him/her so much more?

It also seems that most of the folks who are on assistance are the ones who have multiple kids....that are all the result of a "mistake". I do understand that mistakes happen, but as an adult, it should only take one mistake to learn that this method isn't working and change it?

I see kids the same way I see dogs (only way more expensive). If you can't afford medical care for them (who knows when they will need a week long hospital stay), don't have a "fund" (in the case of kids - college, etc) for them, or you can't give them what they deserve....please don't have more.

I think it's pretty easy to condem people who end up having second or third children while broke or poor when you're not the one who has to decide between getting flamed for abortion, getting flamed for late abortion, or raising another kid.

**** happens. There's no "rewind" button for that sort of thing. Not to mention, 15 years is a LONG time for plenty of fortunes to change for better or worse.

I think its funny how many people believe that you can actually live on government assistance. Do you know how little it actually is? yet over and over people jump all over someone saying "Oh they are just having more kids to get more assistance"

I'd far rather see kids growing up in a home that was short on money and didn't have a cushion than kids growing up in a home that was short on compassion.

Why yes. Because those are the only options.

As far as having kids while poor or on assistance... children are not a right.

Well, there's adoption, but I'm not sure if you are aware...but adoption in the USA runs several thousand. I don't think anyone would look more fondly on selling your kid anymore than they would abortion or just raising the kid when money is tight.

It happens. The system is broken. And the majority of people who have kids aren't going to be rich.

My mom was on food stamps when she got pregnant with me. How? No doctor ever told her birth control doesn't work while on antibiotics. Then she got pregnant again, after me, depo didn't work. Miscarried. Ditto with my brother. Depo shot ran out too quick.

Annnddd....no one would tie her tubes. Imagine that. There's a lot more to this topic than just, "Oh, people need to be rich for 15 years". Things. Happens.
