    If we agree to subsidize birth control will you let us off the hook for the welfare should an unwanted child be born? Fair? or not?

    No.

    Birth control is not a guarantee of no pregnancy and choice means some people can get an abortion and others who do not want to do that are not forced to.

    If you take away funding for those who are choosing to have the child you are taking away there choice.

    I don't know. It seems to me that there needs to be some form of system that helps people, who through no fault of their own have encountered some major financial emergency.

    However, I don't think welfare as it is currently structured is a good system, though, and I think it's incredibly stupid to give women who aren't responsible enough to ensure they don't have children they can't afford to provide for with a check that they should then be responsible enough to use to care for the child.

    No. Not even birth control is foolproof. Many women use more than one form of birth control and still get pregnant.

    Wouldn't the taxpayer prefer to pay for birth control than to pay for abortions? (not that they do)

    Joe the Taxpayer paid for the stupidity of Iraq and Afghanistan, and he continues to do so; Joe needs to understand that in a Constitutional Republic he doesn’t get to pick and choose what his tax dollars will or will not pay for.

    Otherwise, if there’s going to be a ‘No Welfare’ box to check on Form 1040, there also needs to be a ‘No Military’ box to check as well.

    The option to check the 'no death penalty' box should also be there.
