Reason to have kids? Ask Latricia Ryan, single stay-at-home mother of ten: http://www.mlive.com/flintjournal/in...ryan_of_1.html
I think the generous welfare benefits that this government gives to the lazy to sit and pump out kids may be one. Edit: I think people who continue to pump out children they can't afford, while continuously asking for tax payer handouts, should be sterilized. Furthermore, to be eligible for government handouts (food stamps, medicaid -- both of which _I_HATE) you should be required to hold a full-time job. There's this woman I used to work with that had five kids, single. All from different Dads. She started when she was 14 and just never got the hint. Makes me sick... I like seeing large families... but you should be able to afford them. These people in the ghetto (though now with the foreclosures they're putting section 8 peoples into neighborhoods which don't want them -- bringing crime to communities) pumping out kids, never working a day in their lives... should be put down for the good of the country.
