Why do women continue to have children knowing that they cant afford to take care of them....

I have seen several posts today about how these women have 5-6-7 kids but cant afford to take care of them and pay their bills,put food on the table etc..dont you think that if they couldnt afford to pay for things they would stop having kids and get their tubes tied??? Not trying to bash on anyone but really if you cant afford to have kids and feed them then stop having them. Kids are not cheap and they get more and more expensive. You have to think about braces,cars,doctor bills,food,insurance,college,school supplies, clothes,shoes,diapers....get my point?? Its just sad !
If you cant afford them....stop having them !

  • Not all children are planned, and why should an unborn child be aborted just because money is tight?

  • Amen! Don't kids deserve to be taken care of beyond what we, ourselves had? I wasn't a deprived kid but, I want my children to have everything they NEED and deserve!

  • Because they can't afford to get their tubes tied either? LOL Because they think "love" will pay the bills when damnit it won't! My BIL and his wife have 7 and often come to us for money, we feel for the kids so we've helped. Now neither of them work so they lean on the church!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
