Default people who get abortions don't realize how much free money there is attached to kids

i know a guy who shacked up with a girl that had 2 kids from another man. they made one themselves and neither person works for a living

in canada its actually a blessing to have kids



1. paid maternity leave of up to 562$ per week

2. welfare 494$ per month

3. baby bonus 533$ per month

4. child support 200-300$ per month

5. food banks 100-200$ worth of groceries per month

6. saving 800$ per month on low income housing for single moms


basically the woman my friend was with was raking in 3,393$ per month in benefits ( not counting maternity leave ) for sitting on her ass watching cartoons every morning

my friend got welfare too so he had 500$ per month to cover half of the 300$ rent

Wrong. They realize the "benefits", but come to the conclusion that it's not worth taking the <1% chance that the kid they raise will turn out to be as much of a loser as you.

Only the scum of the planet want a life where you sit around and do nothing. Imagine waking up every day knowing you contribute nothing.

3,400$ a month isn't a lot of money for doing nothing?

OP is correct; there is a lot of free money for having kids, but it is limited to only poor people.

In the US, the gov't takes money from taxpayers to fund welfare programs.

These programs provide the incentives you speak of.

However, most of these incentives only provide the benefits for the poor.

The poor are incentivized to stay poor; otherwise they will no longer receive welfare.

duh.. i'm talking about people who get abortions because they think they're not ready



they get overwhelmed thinking they won't be able to take care of a kid cause they don't have a good enough job or can't get ahead... but if they're in school they'll get all those benefits so they can afford a sitter while they're in class and even be able to move out of mom and dads house quite easly


its actually retarded to get an abortion. then you get nothing, your kids dead AND you're still looked at as a huge slut

that doesn't make any sense... someone like me is created by a pregnant person having rich parents of their own that can fully support their offspring financially and spoil him for life


had my parents been faced with the decision through struggles of their own i probably would have grown up with more motivation and respect for others


so if anything abortion is killing off the hard working decent people of society that understand the value of hard work and perseverance
