Do you think if people aren't working and are on food stamps and medicaid....

should be TTC? I don't think they should TTC until they are on their feet. What do you think?

  • I don't think women should try to conceive during hard times BUT! I say this as the youngest of 5 from parents that came here from Mexico legally. Where is the father in all of this? I mean my dad (R.I.P.) was such a smart man with a 5th grade education and he would frown on ppl having kids they can't afford. We did without many things but my mom never had to work and he never believed in getting help from the government. This is why my paranoid self got off of medi-cal right away. He left me the house I live in but he made me promist to never ever get anything from the government again because they will take away my house if I owe them thousands. I still have no health insurance and I think that he is up there being disappointed in me.

  • Lol...mmhhm...I know where this one comes from. Well, I think it is more wise and responsible to yourself, taxpayers AND your children to get your life together before conceiving. Get loans and assistance for school, go to school, increase your income so that you can provide for your children without depending on me and other taxpayers to pay for your needs.

    But, how many of us were perfectly financially stable when we concieved?

  • Me and my own are paying for you and your own....and these other peoples "own" so I asked. Get a job, get off food stamps, get your own medical....then TTC. How is my tax money not paying for your medicaid? Lol Do I get to pick where it goes now?

    Anyway, this question is not focused on you. So, you can go now :)

  • Where will you get a job these days? A gas station or taco bell? If you don't care what people think then why in the f@## are you asking people if you are a bad person? You don't care what moms think and then you ask what we think of you. You are such a dumbass.
