Should unemployed parents be allowed to have children?
I know it may be a cotroversial subject. In a recession environment should a government supplement the unemployed, and allow them to claim further benefits for having children out of employment being unable to afford the priviledge.
Let us be logical. The answer is a resounding no. People who are unemployed usually do not have children while they are unemployed. They are struggling themselves and believe that it would be asinine and inane to have children at this time.
Thanks gmwilliams, We have a culture in certain partsof society where unemployment and benefit scrounging is bred through families.
We recently had a case in the news where we are of a man (long term unemployed) fathering 8 children over a 10 year period with 3 different partners. The man was off work on long term unemployment due to a bad back (not too bad a back to procreate) and he had the audacity to demand more money and a larger house from the local council as he couldn't keep something in his pants! (or use protection)
@CyclingFItness I think people like you described should be swallowed at birth by a giant alligator. It should be some kind of crime punishable by law to have more then one child when you are unemployed.
Legislating to stop a minority of scummy people is never a good idea.
