Why have kids?
The Daily Circuit live chat for April 30, 2012
I don't buy the "cannot financially afford to care for them" argument. I've seen too many couples that were quite able to care for their kids at birth, but circumstances changed over the years... and many on the opposite arc as well.
It's not a one time decision, but a lifetime process, and you can't return a child to the store, with or without a receipt.
