As pressure mounts on the Rudd Government to find billions of dollars in savings in the May Budget, economists have called for a review of the current "mishmash" of family payments - two different Family Tax Benefits, two types of childcare payment and the Baby Bonus - to ensure the $17 billion a year serves a more coherent policy purpose.

Worthwhile ... Ann Pearson, with her seven-week-old Aidan, says the baby bonus gives her more time with her new son.

I'm of two minds on this.

One is that if teenage girls had not been having children over the past thousands of years there would be no humans on the planet to argue this point.

That said though, in our modern world it's no longer necessary to breed at such a young age for the survival of our species.

I've seen some very young mothers that are fantastic and I have no problem with them having children, and I've seen old crack whores with children that should never even be near a baby.
So who decides ???

Darwinism will sort it out in the end.

AD is in total agreement with ad. Absolutely.
that being said..
I myself had my son 11 days before I turned 16. Before I got pregnant, I was into drinking, drugs, breaking the law and causing all kinds of havoc for myself and my mom. I was on a one way road to jail or worse. The day I found out I was expecting, I quit smoking, drugs and drinking. ( I drink occasionally now).
Eventually I stopped hanging out with those who were no good for me.
Me winding up in jail would have been a bigger strain on any system and my child would have ended up in foster care, another burden. My son saved my life. Literally.
As for a strain on the food and water supplies, perhaps it should be noted how much grain and water goes to livestock to put on our dinner table. If that were diverted directly to us there may not be a hunger problem.
just my 2 pennies.

I just rekon if u have a kid u should have to be approved i know its a way of control if u do but what happens wene thay cant take care of the kid it becomes bad and turns to crime so maybe thay should be approved if the pearent is able to care for it thay can have it and how much the pearents make also.
