Seems like alot of poor, single females are going from relationship to relationship having a baby as a trophy for each man and expecting hard-working Americans to pay every single penny for their massive housing vouchers, free utility bills, four-digit monthly food debit cards and respite daycare if they decide to make the welfare office happy by working in hour or two once in a while.

Sort of will be a crisis before long and will impact alot of different things next generation. There basically is huge segment of millennial women out there who are in poverty having baby after baby when they can't take of themselves and are clueless on how to raise a child even with a welfare bonanza from confiscated tax dollars.

The birth rates among poor women are absolutely stunning and I guarantee that it's going to have implications in 20 years when you have a tremendous amount of children growing up in absolutely horrid upbringings and then there is a large segment of middle and upper-middle class who skipped out on having children who have much more potential on average and would likely pay much more in taxes for the massive rise in retirees.

I admit it's a few years old but it's just incredible how millions and millions and millions of poor women babies each decade, one after another when they don't have the ability to take of themselves.

It's amazing how very low the birth rate has become for successful women who put in an honest 40 hours as opposed to those in poverty.

I couldn't find recent statistics but 69 percent of women in poverty who have a baby do so out of wedlock

50% of all US births are paid for by Medicaid, look it up.

We have a real problem not classifying and treating children as an expensive luxury item. As long as we purport them to be a “basic human right” there’s no hope.

I don't get the mindset of having children when you can't afford them, I can't relate at all.

It's an incredibly vicious cycle. The movie Idiocracy (2006) had it right. If you've not seen it do yourself a favor and watch it and then have a drink to the end of civilization as we know it.

At least they are having (future tax payers) babies ... as opposed to those who decided they could not afford them. The government should be pleased ... Honestly if money is the reason to have a baby ... just stop.

Baby Boom to Baby Bust – The Crisis in Socialism

"There is a real crisis in the fertility rate which has fallen to such a low level that all the socialism going forward will simply collapse. What used to be the Baby Boom is now being called the “Baby Bust,” which means that in all first-world countries there is a real crisis for they have insufficient children to maintain their population size. This has been one excuse for allowing the refugees into Europe. As the population dwindles, all the social programs are collapsing for they were NEVER designed properly from the outset. They are based on a Ponzi scheme where they rely on taxing a growing younger population to service the benefits of the older generation. This was the entire scheme behind Obamacare. Force the youth to buy insurance they do not need to reduce the cost for the elderly."

If a person waits until they can afford them, they will never have them. Life is not perfect, waiting for perfection in marriage and children ... the person is going to be waiting a very very long time.


We are people, not money, I wish people would stop acting as if we were ...

This is a phenomenon that has been going on for literally centuries, if not millennia.

Even back in Roman times people observed that the poor had more kids than the rich.

Yes, poor people who cannot afford children should not have them. Yes, it is social Darwinism. Yes, it is the most reasonable and compassionate system.

Elite liberals crowing about demographic destiny don't seem to care that such a destiny is powered by the suffering and despair of millions of children growing up in poverty, being used as cannon fodder in a political war between rival sets of elites.

My niece has 3 kids by different fathers. She relies on food stamps and welfare. And she votes republican. But hey when republicans want to make abortions harder to get what do you expect.
