Do you believe that poorer and/or less educated people have more children whom they can't support?


Do you know any ill effects to the child(ren) born to these families and society? If so, what are they?

    I agree with your observations. Where is the mindset of doing what's best for the CHILD? What about preparing for & planning for a child or deciding that if one can't even support themselves that they should not create a child, let alone several?

    There are many examples such as parents who have no income and no savings or those who procreate and refuse to help the other parent raise the child and pay a fair share of the child's expenses. Can they afford children?

    Excellent point re: those outside the US yet many think it is selfish to not think of what's best for the child & think that perhaps the child may have other dreams rather than being brought into poverty & the world to take care of others.

    To afford, financially, emotionally, and otherwise. Parenting is a multi-faceted and very important life long job yet, many people don't take it seriously or even ponder what would be best for the child BEFORE the child is even created.
