My friends and I were discussing this over the weekend. There are so many unplanned/unwanted pregnancies, especially by people in the lower income bracket who can't afford birth control, etc.
Do you think the government should OFFER (not force) to pay for people with several children that they already can't afford to be sterilized (at their own request, of course)? Yes, that's $$ for the gov't to shell out, but surely that's more economical than paying out welfare for each child born to a lower income family?
My gut reaction is to say no, but as my friends and I talked about it, I became curious about what other people thought.

You are asking if people who keep having children they cant afford to raise on their own, who turn to the government for assistance as a lifestyle not as a temporary help, should be given more money to get sterilized? NO, they should be forced to attend birth control classes or be sterilized to prevent having any more children that WE as taxpayers pay for and support.
