Child support

Child support

There seem to be a lot of women with a flock of kids they can’t afford to support. Where are the fathers who were part of bringing these kids into the world?
There are laws that require we buy health insurance, wear seat belts and all sorts of personal things; why not pass a condom law? Punishment for not wearing a seat belt is more harsh than not paying child support. The law makes sure you have a seat belt on. How about the law going to homes to make sure parents are out earning money to support their kids?
When a male and a female make a baby, there should be laws that make their lives a bad dream if they do not support their kids. If you can’t afford kids, do not have kids. Being born into an overpopulated and underfunded family is no picnic.
