We need this to stop some abusers of the system from receiving an income solely for having children.
We are experiencing a population boom in this country which we can not afford and which is bad for the environment. We need to stop – as a society – effectively incentivising people for having large families. If they wish to have more children than two they should fund them entirely themselves and not expect taxpayers to do so.
I’ve raised counter-points to this argument before. Simply put: What happens to large families who are legitimately in need of actual benefits? Do they just allow the “excess” children to starve to death?
