Quoting ~Julie Blue Eyes~:" 100% of welfare money IS taxpayer money."
Yeah? And how much of your taxes goes to things you don't approve of? I'm not going to get my panties in a bunch over what a small select few people choose to do when I've been funding a war I don't believe in and other kinds of crap I don't approve of - the few people who TTC while on welfare is the least of my worries.

the thing is it's not a "small number of people"... It's too many people which should be called: Social parasites.. Living off other people's hard work.
Quoting LolaMcKitten:" Yeah, ok. Give me a real number of people who actually TTC while they are on welfare. You have your nose in the air and your head stuck up your ass. "
I'm not studying statistics so I don't know a number, probably, you don't either. I know what I'm talking about, I know plenty of poor neighborhoods with families who have up to 10 kids, hundreds of them.. And they don't even seek for jobs. Now my family paying them to support their kids? What a joke.
Doesn't matter if they're TTC or just have plenty of babies in a row by "accident". If they can't afford, they need to put their adult pants on and act like grown ups.
Need I remind this thread that most of the people receiving something like food stamps are receiving them to make a paycheck stretch further. It's not a good idea to TTC while using social programs but most of them using social programs are not leeching off the system.

Quoting Miss Macie:" I am not really sure what i think about the situation, because i am not in the situation. II have a family ... [snip!] ... be ttc in their currant financial state or does it matter? Like i said, i am not in that situation, so i don't know how i feel."
No one should be ttcing on welfare. NO ONE. And a fourth child? Come on now....
Quoting Dalek:" Which includes having abortions which, if I remember correctly, you don't agree with either. Either ... [snip!] ... they technically can't afford or support terminating pregnancies. And if you're not who I am thinking of, I apologize."
I never say I don't agree with abortions. I don't agree with them "out of the blue". If it's for health reasons or moral reasons, I have nothing to object. If they can't afford or simply don't want the baby, I'd go for adoption. Simple as that. Anyways, can't see how that relates to the topic.
People on welfare should NOT be TTC. PERIOD.
Quoting LolaMcKitten:" Oh my god....you are seriously fucked up. Get your head out of your ass. "
Sweetie, why don't you go offline and make a piggy bank for these families that just want more and more babies without even working to support them? Go on and be nice to them. I don't need your kindness. Worry about your own money, and I'll worry about mine.

I think she lives in lala land where everything is ideal and she sees herself as better than anyone on any type of assistance and is under some delusion that none of them work.
Quoting Dalek:" Need I remind this thread that most of the people receiving something like food stamps are receiving ... [snip!] ... It's not a good idea to TTC while using social programs but most of them using social programs are not leeching off the system."
No. They are ALL sucking our of the system.
No reason to sugar-coat what is going on. I am in favor of saftey net programs that help those in true need on a temporary basis, but they are still living off of other peoples money.
