Last week, she said she had a right to have as many children as she wanted, even though she couldn’t support them.
Adams’ comments about social welfare agencies not doing enough to help was widely criticized during the past week. She doesn’t currently have a job. Her children were fathered by three men, including one who is in prison.
This woman is absolutely correct: she has a natural right to produce as many children as she pleases…and the natural responsibility to feed them. And if she doesn’t, Nature has a natural right to take its course. None of that creates an obligation for the rest of us to feed her children. And if it takes the sight of babies dying in the streets to convince these brood sows of that, then that’s what it takes.
