No. If you need tax payer assistance to support your child, you shouldn't be having a child. You should be an adult and accept that you cannot care
for a life other than your own.
If you think keeping irresponsible people from having children is some kind of abomination, you're living in a fantasy world. There are many things
in this world we regulate because people cannot be trusted to be responsible enough to handle them. Drugs, weapons, a multitude of chemicals.
Why is the creation of human life considered some kind of inviolable right when we regulate so many other things? Is your right to have a child
greater than your child's right to live a comfortable and stable life?
ETA: Before the inevitable replies, stupid people tend to be on welfare. You're being disingenuous if you argue against that. I'm tired of people
grasping at every excuse they can conceive of in order to commend irresponsible behavior.
I'm sorry, but none of these factors can or will determine whether not you you will be a good parent. It is for better or worse only after the child
is born and you see how the parents raise it can it be judged whether the parents are any good.
There are plenty of people out there with high IQs, who work stellar jobs but have the most dysfunctional home life around and plenty of welfare moms
who are totally loving and responsible as much as their circumstances will allow.
Being a victim of circumstance should not disqualify you from being able to raise a family.
You cannot ever come up with a 'one size fits all' set of criteria for a government department to be able to judge who may or may not make fit
parents which is why this hasn't and shouldn't ever be implemented.

You're not a victim because you're born poor. You're only a victim when someone makes a concerted effort to harm you.
Indeed, there are plenty of people who have brought themselves out of the dirt and raised themselves to greatness, but they are the exception to the
People like to speak of survival of the fittest and natural selection, but suddenly forget that when they think of "the children." There is no
benefit to human kind to prop up the weakest, the most ignorant, the laziest, the most diseased, the disabled.
All you're doing is ensuring our downfall. Those who can produce cannot pick up the slack for those who cannot. Coddling people who make
irresponsible choices only brings down the rest of us.
There is no room in this world for useless people. If you contribute nothing to society, you should absolutely not be having children.
Please tell me why literally every aspect of my life can be regulated except when it comes to creating new life.
I cannot own a machine gun, I cannot own a missile, I cannot even buy raw milk from my neighbor. But I can bring life into this world that I am not to
be responsible for?
You need to look past your pipe dreams for civilization and take a large dose of reality. I'm sorry, but the noble notions you fabricate in your mind
do not change reality.
