    you mean white people who work hard move to areas which have nicer homes and better schools and those who cannot afford such areas cannot move there?

    But if one cannot afford birth control, BY GOD SOMEONE ELSE SHOULD PAY FOR IT!!!!!

    You will as in taking care of children for a very long time. It's about pragmatic solutions not moral ones.

    The entire point is that it IS expensive for taxpayers when those babies are born and we are going to be paying for them for a very long time....maybe even into adulthood if they end up in the penal system. Just a fact. Much cheaper to buy them birth control pills.

    you make a good point. why should the taxpayers pay for babies that those who produce them refuse to support? I figure-you have one kid that others have to pay for, you are prevented from spawning any more

    Why resort to such extremes when the solution doesn't have to be nearly so extreme? It would be cheaper and more pragmatic to provide them with birth control rather than force sterilization.

    I used to work at PP. You'd be shocked to hear how many inner city men object to birth control.

    I can't think of one good pragmatic reason not to provide poor people with birth control.

    A hell of a lot less money than the alternative. That fact can not be debated.
