  • Everyone is different. For some people its religious reasons. They believe God will provide. There are people who can afford all the materialistic things yet dont provide basic love and nurturing. I don't think anyone is a in position to judge what another person should or shouldn't do.

  • People have the right to have as many children as they want BUT they and they ALONE should be able to provide/support them on their OWN, with no help from anyone or any agency. When other people's taxes are used to support their children in the form of food stamps, tanf, etc then clearly they have had too many children. I am not typing about those of us who get help temporarily because of hard times I'm only typing about people who continue to have children with the expectation that others will help.

  • I only know of 2 religions that say no to birth control. Islam & the catholic(sp?) oh make it three the jewish dont believe in birthcontrol. I personal belive if you cant aford to take care then you shouldnt have them. Myhusband & I waited nearly 8 years to have a kid we wanted to make sure we could afford to take care of our baby. I also hate that my hard earned money goes to ppl who keep having kids and cant take care of them I bascaly agree w/ Meooma
