Scheming Angel asked:
I think that women who apply for government assistance — such as welfare, food stamps, public housing or Medicaid — should be required to go on birth control in order to receive benefits. If they’re admitting that they can’t afford to feed, house, or support themselves and whatever children they already have, what right do they have to get pregnant? Not only would they make their own situation worse, but they’d be subjecting another innocent child to a life of poverty.
Naturally, the exam and medication should be provided for free, and should be something like Depo, Norplant, or an IUD. The pill wouldn’t be effective, because anyone who disagreed could throw them away and claim that it didn’t work.
Who thinks that this is a logical solution to an ongoing problem and who believes that I’m just being prejudiced and unfair? If you choose the latter, please explain why…
I should point out that I am on food stamps — and birth control — myself, so this isn’t a case of some middle class soccer mom not understanding the plight of hardworking single moms.
