The planet is already encroaching on its resources and unfortunately, having babies means increasing this burden. I do not believe in any financial compensation - including federal- for having children. It reinforces an old societal expectation to reproduce and that’s not good for women and other families who can’t or don’t want to have kids. Further, certain individuals will take advantage of it, and with our current population and planet as it is, it will reinforce our abuse of the planet (and at this point people who DONT have kids should be given a tax credit IMO). NO tax credits for kids.
