    Totally agree. It totally perplexes me that some people glorify poverty when it is totally detrimental for children. I believe that children should be born into the best socioeconomic circumstances possible.

    Of course the children suffer most. What galls me is that in today's age of advanced contraception, many poor people unthinkingly have children, KNOWING in GOOD CONSCIENCE they CAN'T afford to raise them properly!

    Poverty is wrong and pathological, especially for children. I cannot for the life of me what some people praise poverty and denigrate wealth. Poverty kills and damages more children than any disease. Poverty further handicaps children in X ways.
