Is it realistic to decry contraception while promoting a welfare state?
A welfare state being any society which will care for the resulting births of the underpriviledged.
`Contraception is sometimes attacked as `unnatural`... The trouble is, so is the welfare state. I think most of us believe the welfare state is highly desirable. But you cannot have an unnatural welfare state, unless you also have unnatural birth control, otherwise the end result will be misery even greater than that which obtains in nature.`
That quote, by the way, is followed by something even more venomous: "It is hard to believe that this simple truth is not understood by those leaders who forbid their followers to use effective contraceptive methods. They express a preference for 'natural' methods of population limitation, and a natural method is exactly what they are going to get. It is called starvation."
I believe that contraception should be encouraged because our world is way too overpopulated. And welfare just allows people who irresponbily procreating to keep doing it and leech off society by doing so.
