Just think of the savings if workers had only to buy condoms. As it is, we have millions of ''surprise'' babies with one parent(the lucky ones) that end up in Head Start, Preschool, Kindergarten, a few more years of real School, and ALL this, workers had to pay for. Following that, workers pay even more keeping these ''educated'' in correctional facilities until they're old enough to be on their own.....cont.

There's no "surprise" about babies....we know where they come from now. Once you toss the terribly restrictive morality that teaches a woman to keep her legs shut until she is in a position to be able to raise a baby (i.e., not alone...i.e. in a legal covenant with the father...i.e. marriage), then this chaos is the result. And the babies suffer the most. I'm not a misogynist; I am a realist. It is the woman who is faced with the decision to raise her baby alone and without support, give up her baby, or to murder her baby before it is born when the inseminator moves on.

The woman who keeps her legs closed is the empowered one.
While I have no doubt most, that played the fool, love the child that 'just seemed to show up', life is more difficult for many or them and the child is reared in dependency upon money confiscated from strangers. And against their will, as they have their own kids to provide for.
The child learns dependency, and is taught it is their 'right'.
Child abuse, actually.
An empowered woman decides not to be put into dependency like Obama's 'Julia', who is a slave.

1) Starting in the sixties there was an explosion of children born out-of-wedlock and kids who don't grow up in two parent families fare more poorly percentage wise on just about any and every scale imaginable including substance abuse, teenage pregnancies, suicide rates, criminality and homelessness.

2) Many people are becoming so childlike in their dependence on the government that they can't save for their own retirement, escape from an oncoming hurricane, or even purchase their own birth control without the government handling it for them.

3) Our legal system encourages frivolous lawsuits, is punitively expensive...
