Okay, so lets go with your assessment of children not being baggage. Lets simply change the word to burden.
An uneducated person is a burden to the society in which they live. This is simply undeniable.
In the USA there is a culture of "welfare" in some of the "less desirable" neighborhoods. These people are a burden upon those that are getting taxed
to pay for it. So are their children.
Unlike most folks I do not believe a person should have a "right" to a child. If you can not afford to raise them, you should not have them PERIOD!
Clearly that has not been happening. Stupid poor people are breeding like Honey Boo Boo's.
Oh and guess what? I came from just such a family! Happy to sit on their asses and let a tiny check roll in. I lived life as a poor kid, my bedroom
was the back porch and the hot water heater was next to my pillow. I got constantly teased due to wearing my cousins hand me downs in school. My
parents not afford sports, camp or any of the other things many families take for granted. School and being a kid was a nightmare, and I was white.
Can't imagine being black or Mexican and poor also.
Having a child should require a license.
P.S. I nearly ended up a criminal due to the anger issues from being raised that way. Luckily I got it sorted out and became a good person with a
good business. I donate several thousand a year to various charities that all benefit children. I don't dislike kids, I dislike breeding without a
