    They're getting support from the government because the daughter can't stop sleeping around?

    OK. So even if she didn't get multiples — that would still leave her with 3 children at age 16…
    That is still crazy.

    The government should have provided birth control instead of donate land and house.

    By giving out freebies, it won't be surprising if more teenagers in that region will get pregnant in an attempt to get free land and free house.

    it's sad that being a little slut and getting yourself knocked up is a career move these days. "oh, the government will sort me out" :rolleyes:

    (yes I am a judgemental bitch, I'm sick of these little tarts with their big greedy open hands, among other things, looking to make the responsible people of the world pay their way in life. I just love forking over extortionate prices on council tax so little skanks can milk their way into housing and raise a generation of delinquents.)

    Welcome to America!

    No, wait...

    It's common for the poor women in the US to be forced to have more children by their husbands/boyfriends so they receive more welfare from the government. There are cases of fathers/grandparents/uncles fathering children for this purpose. In my hometown, you sometimes never know who the father is.

    What iBlue said.

    There was a similar case around here where 2 girls did it, and then demanded the Council put them up. The community responded by telling them where to go in no uncertain terms.

    Figure of speech. Why on earth would they tell them to goto Ireland? :confused: I get the feeling I'm missing something...

    Yes, you're right. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I said that.

    New Zealand, right?

    I agree.

    Mind you, most of the UK isn't religious at all and we still have the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Europe. :rolleyes:

    You support the mother to help the children. If you refuse to help them out you're punishing the wrong people. It may not send out the right message but would you honestly subject a child to abject poverty to make a point. Have you got a better idea?

    I live in a highly religious town and I don't see teens popping out babies left and right.

    Teenage pregnancy has more to do with a general decline of the community not religiousness or religion. A tight-nit community/family is always better than father government. Personally, I would take her kids and sterilize her, problem solved. But then everyone would scream Nazi.

    I agree with all of your points.

    and in Eastern Europe during the Cold War is was not that uncommon to do exactly that, if a woman was not a fit parent, after third pregnancy she was sterilized.

    I would take the kids away from her, and make sure she could not breed anymore.
    or find the biological fathers and make them pay for child support.
