It is cheaper to offer birth control than to take care of unwanted children, and we have a moral obligation to help these children once they are born since we forced them into the world. We also have to worry about higher rates of maternal deaths in women who shouldn't get pregnant but do because they don't have access to birth control.
I feel like women should have affordable options in order to make the best decision for their bodies. This is a matter of national health and should be subsidized for women who cannot afford it on their own. There is not enough help for these vulnerable citizens and that is probably why poorer women get pregnant so often in their teens.
United States government should follow Philippines in this matter and offer free birth control. It could eliminate lot of problems in regards to child care and children's well being. Also, it is not fair that women who have money can have birth control while women who are less fortunate can't.
Unwanted babies are a big problem for society. The cost to the system and the parents for every child is huge. On top of that an unwanted child often isn't raised as well as it might have been, leading to a troubled adult, not always but sometimes. This leads to further problems. Giving out birth control is a short-term cost that saves long-term costs.
