Above you will find the link to an article indicating that women from a particular region in South Africa are so poor, they deliberately consume battery acid while pregnant in order to inoculate birth defects so that they can receive more welfare from the state after the child is born! In addition, the mixtures they consume are addictive and produce the same effects to the adult as alcohol or narcotics. Is it that bad? People would sacrifice their own children for a few dollars?!? Effects that may never improve, damage them for life. What about contraception? Moving to areas with more and better employment opportunities if possible? I’ve heard of having more children to increase welfare amounts, even falsifying documents (not that I condone it); but causing actual harm to innocent babies infuriates and saddens me.
