Do you think women who become pregnant and turn to welfare should be forced to get an IUD?

I do, simply because ther is a ton of women in my area who keep having babies after babies relying on the system, wouldnt even consider walking outside and looking for a job. Do you onestly think its okay for these women?

  • ""You may not like it, but it's her body and her choice and nobody should force her to do something like that if she doesn't want to.""

    That being said: It's *my* money. So why can't I choose not to let her have it? We are providing a service to these people. We should be allowed to put any restrictions on it necessary to prevent abuse of the system. If you cannot afford to have a baby, do what you can to prevent it. If you don't want to prevent pregnancy, then don't expect to get aid. We wouldn't be forcing them to get the IUD.

    Also, God isn't going to stop you from getting pregnant. Why allow us free will if we can't choose to protect ourselves before having sex. So that's not a valid argument.

  • No, I don't think anyone has the right to tell you what you can or can't do with your own body!

  • I think it should be offered freely to them, but it thier bodies and some people (like me) think that you will have a baby when God wants you to. But others just can't afford it. offer but don't make. what is the point of having rights if you force someone to do something

    As a matter of fact, I'm not, but I AM pro-choice and that includes a woman having the right to decide for herself if she uses any sort of birth control. You may not like it, but it's her body and her choice and nobody should force her to do something like that if she doesn't want to.
