Well, I think that it's one thing for people to need assistance at times, and health care is one thing which is entirely too expensive. However, if parents cannot fulfill their childs basic needs and constantly need all types of assistance from food stamps to free daycare to health care, they shouldn't be having any more kids. I know a lady with 5 kids who is having her sixth...willingly...and receives almost $4,ooo total in government assistance a month., NO, she should not be having more kids. I waited until financially stable to have a baby, and I think others should at least make an attempt to do the same. However, like I said, once in a while I think it's okay. If you've worked, you've contributed to the money you'd be receiving, and that's what it's there for. I just don't believe in taking advantage.
