As would my mother, if you had asked her when she had me in arms. As
might your mother have.

What is it about being a poor mother, compared to a well-off one, that
makes one less deserving of support? I hope you're not one of those
wankers who bemoans the abandonment of the infant by its horrible
status-hungry mother returning to her lawyering or computering but
expects the maid to show up on time a week after her baby is born.

And what office are you in, anyway? If you're interviewing AFDC
mothers, you're sucking off the public tit just as they are.

being weak-willed and effeminate.

There are emergency contraception pills that you can take
after you have had unprotected sex. They work up to three
days after intercourse. You don't have to wait to be sure
you're pregnant and then have an abortion.
