Quoting Ren:The secret bride-to-b:" SSI means she gets paied because she "can't" work. We're paying for her to have a child."


But if she can't work then she needs SSI. Isn't everyone 'allowed' to use sperm donors?



Again, I always find it difficult to grasp this stuff, I'm not American. Here, in AUS, it's no ones business what someone uses disability for. If they can't work, they can't work, we are part of a community and help those who can't work.
I think it's a very different mindset.

Didn't you pick someone already? Just do it the old fashion way, go to a bar and find a hot guy get him drunk, steal his baby juice and never see him again. :lol:

But someone who can volunteer at an animal shelter, for like 1 hour a day, brushing cats, may not have the capacity for paid work.

But having a child, isn't that a job on its own? Besides carrying it for hopefully to term, caring for a baby can be more or less demanding than a paid job, right?

You are right, but I don't know. Someone in a wheelchair who is a quadripleagic would be able to raise a child with appropriate assistance.



I agree re the concern for a child, but the money thing? I don't think it's anyones business.

This would be faster, easier & cheaper. Heck might even get an O out of the deal.

I do agree with that, but I don't know what sort of assistance OP has, or what her disability is.
I am sure many people with disabilities raise children successfully!



But obviously there is some history here, I don't know!

My brother is quadriplegic, he wants kids but will find a spouse that understands she will be doing almost all of the physical work..



OP is just a complete moron that should be sterilized.

Now that u bring it up there was a story on discovery health when it was that... A lady could not feel from her waist down and had a baby and cared for it by her self wile her husband worked. She did not need help she made adjustments to her life style.

This was clearly posted with the intention of stirring up some shit. She knew the reaction she'd get after the last thread went to TDC.

I'm sure lots of things are possible!
I don't know OP's situation. I would be concerned about a baby being uncared for, I do agree with that.
But as far as how someone spends their disability? That's not my concern, but from what I've seen on BG the Australian mindset on welfare is VERY different to the US.
