[QUOTE=ChrisL;1061510861]Well, then, why can the child not stay with the parent indefinitely and keep claiming benefits through her parents extra welfare income for having dependents?
Does she have a child of her own and collecting services for herself and her child? If not, then no. BTW, I'm talking about long-term BC now because sterilization is too permanent.
Again, this is about the person who has an open claim receiving welfare benefits with at least one child. The child of someone collecting would not count because it is not "her" claim.
Again, refer to above. The long-term BC would only apply to the person who is claiming benefits for themselves and their child/children.
Not sure what you mean by "time limits." Regular visits to a physician to ensure compliance with long-term BC, which anyone on birth control is supposed to do anyway.
This would allow her to receive (indirectly) welfare benefits as an adult without having to be sterilized - would it not (since she is technically a dependent)? At least until she wanted to have children.
Also, what happens if a 14 year old child of a welfare parent had a baby? Would she have to be sterilized to remain with her parent?
