Uhhh yeah, actually we SHOULD be paying women to have kids. Kids are expensive and a LOT of work. It’s one of many reasons for the de facto birth strike at the heart of the steadily declining American birthrate. Women who, unable to afford adequate health insurance and exorbitant medical bills and denied access to paid parental leave, child care and job protection, find it financially punitive to have children. The tax break is nice, but a Universal single payer healthcare system, paid parental leave, quality affordable childcare, and job protection would do a lot more to support women’s ability to care for kids. Although I do support limiting it to two or three kids. But there’s no getting around the fact that no kids means no future tax payers unless you guys are going to open the doors to a lot more immigration. Also, some of you clearly don’t get the whole idea of “pro-choice”. If you want to have kids, that your choice and we support that. If you don’t want to have kids, that’s your choice and we support that. The central tenant is that it your choice and we support your right to make it for yourself. There is zero conflict. Both support women choice. If you were actually pro-life instead of just forced-birth, you would support making motherhood less financially punitive.
