I cant wait to see WIC eliminated!

The need for WIC, for the most part, is caused by peoples lack of personal responsibility. There are few cases in which the statement does not apply. Such as those unable to take/use birth control because of allergies, rape victims, and those families laid off during pregnancy. We are one of the only species who have the ability to breed at almost anytime we choose, yet still reject opportunistic values shared by similar species.

 WIC provides for 45% of all infants. In 2011, 7 billion was spent on WIC. The percentage of children on WIC is ridiculous when one thinks out all the dozens of forms of birth control out of the market, many of which are free or of little cost to people in poverty. We all know that once a child is born into poverty or by parents who are unable to fully care for them are often set up for failure. The problem isn't the parents, it's our society  as a whole. We place little importance on personal responsibility and the need for self reliance. This is even more prevalent in low income communities. Education and family planing are proven ways to eliminating poverty and building a strong country as a whole.

 The day we realize that and implement successful strategies to teach our countries children will be the day not only the need for WIC is practically eliminated, but also programs like snap. I will smile that day!

so a baby gets to go hungry because maybe its mom cannot breast feed and they lost a job , because some idiotic woman thinks it is a good idea. You always have the dumbest comments but this one takes the cake. I did not have enough milk for my kids to breast feed. My husband got injured and his income dropped when i had my first, when i had my second he was back to work but his job was eliminated. So my kids should of starved?
