Ok i see a lot of abortion posts and a lot of pa posts.
So hypotheticaly if a woman got pregnant with a child she could or would not support by working and refused adoption as an option. She chooses either to abort or raise the child fully on pa ( government housing, welfare check, foodstamps , wic, free lunch, &clothing vouchers) what in your opinion is the better choice?
There are no other options because this is simply the choice some people make.

 If she were on PA it would cover daycare vouchers and she would still be working.

 Personally, I think being born is much better than dying regardless of what it takes to live.

She should start by going after the father for CS.

That's actually required in order to receive pa

Yep, and if a woman isn't sure which man impregnated her, she has to list the men she had sex with in the time frame that could have resulted in pregnancy.

But, even if the father is found and proven, that doesn't mean she won't need pa. He might not pay or only have to pay $50 a month.

This is how the world is supposed to work..

We only allow married people who earn at least double the poverty limit to have children..

We accomplish this by teaching abstinence only in schools, outlawing abortion, and, if we decide to be a little moderate, legally restricting birth control to be allowed only to the above group. We may not even allow the bc to this group because that would kill babies. Everyone else who is not in this included group will remain celibate until they can be included in this group.

Anyone who does not conform to this will be taken into the public square and stoned to death (insert sarcastic pink font here!)

This will solve all the problems in the world.

From my end...But I do think there are some on here who think this..At least that is my impression from what they are saying!

Think about it:

No PA, no abortion, no BC or limited access, no sex ed, sex outside marriage is immoral, single moms breed criminals..blah blah...

What does all this add up to?

I would personally choose to abort in that situation.  I would support her choice and certainly wouldn't attempt to influence her one way or the other.
