So I've been debating posting anything about the California Octuplets if you live in a hole and haven't heard this story click here. Anyways...I am going to make this brief because I'm not real big on posting my opinions about hot topic political type stuff...However this really strikes a nerve with me.
As a parents Rocky and I have come to the conclusion that quite possibly we will have only one child. Why because we are trying to live responsibly without going into a ton of debt...or living off of assistance from the government or having to ask our parents to lend a hand. We want to be able to give our child every thing he needs and still be able to put money away for our retirement. Boring I know but I think it's responsible...I would love nothing more than another child...right now it just doesn't work with our budget.
First lets talk about the government assistance...I'm all for the government helping people who are really down on their luck...I don't mind some of my tax dollars going to help these people as they get back on their feet but I think they should be held accountable and show they are trying. I DO NOT support people decided to quit their jobs to stay at home when they can't afford it and just decide to live off of the government. I think that's very irresponsible.
Okay secondly to put her parents in that position...to be an unwed parent to 14 children that she honestly can't afford to raise without the tax dollars from the rest of us. Hello so many people got mad at the Gosslins when they had their six but as far as I can tell they can afford all 8 of those babies. But I guess after her book deal and movie deal and whatever else she probably will...but that doesn't mean its right...what about all the time it takes to raise that many children.
And most of all I think it's totally unfair to families that can not get pregnant that have been trying so hard to have just one baby of their own and nothing works! It's just not fair! I think it's completely unfair!!!
Okay...flame away at me. Just my stance...It's not fair that some people take advantage of their ability to have children when so many others never have their opportunity.
