If you can't afford to take care of them without government assistance, then don't have babies. Use birth control. I'm tired of paying for other people's babies.

I don't think what Mike was getting at is that abortions are birth control, unfortunately some people do think that way....but I'm willing to bet that's not Mike's stance....that might not have ben your take on it, but the 'Yeah well' that you started your comments with lead me to believe that you were debating his comments.
I agree with Mike though. There are very few things that bother me more than seeing a family that can't afford the children that they have. It's a touchy subject, obviously, because one can always argue the fact that these children are conceived out of love.....and that may be the case, but there's got to be common sense involved as well. It's a simple math problem, if you're having problems raising the five children that you have, don't have a sixth......it's that simple.
I didn't read the article, because I really don't care what Nancy Pelosi has to say on the issue, but I think that people with limited incomes should really consider the consequences of bringing another
child into the world.
