Poor Single Mothers: Do these women owe it to society to stop reproducing?
Poor Single Mothers Having More Babies
So...If you can't afford to have another baby.....
When I say "poor" single mothers, I do not mean, "oh, poor single mother, bless the little soul". I mean, they literally are living at or below the poverty level. Do these women owe society to stop producing? Is there any other way to look at it? Well that is what this article is going to discuss. I believe there are varying degrees of this epidemic and not all stories are the same.
There are millions upon millions of women who abuse their position of a child-bearing age woman, and have as many babies as they can for one reason. More babies = more money for them. And it's true! At this time, that is how Social Services is set up. So it certainly does leave one to wonder, if these women are simply looking for paychecks rather than more little bundle of joys to enhance their families.
I can't help but to think of Octomom (gosh, I'd die if being dubbed with that nickname), who delievered 2 sets of twins, then 8 babies at one time. I guess we will never know her true motivation. And for sure her doctor is culpable in some way. But I for one, do not see that as an example of someone wanting to add "one more" to enhance their family. WHEN THEY ALREADY had 4 at home they were struggling with.
Even in my own town, I see mothers with many young children, yelling at them as they go down the street, and I feel sorry for their kids. Were they brought into the world as another paycheck and tax deduction? Now, the mom has to 'go through the motions' of raising them to get her money?

And FS, you should correct the error in the post. Six kids then eight. Not four. Four singletons, one set of fraternal twins then she had her octuplets.
