  • I think it is okay to test and find out. I do not think this should be a reason for denying benefits.
    Rather, it should be an indication that intervention is needed.
    How many parents will just not get the food stamps or welfare that is necessary to take care of the children?
    Who is suffering then?

  • It should be done in all 50 states. Its about time! Now we can weed out some of the abusers.
