Yes, Polly, you are one of those babies, but I do not recognise your need as valid.
However, to the core issue. Has it ever occured to Polly to ask how many children in poverty were born into it by their parents?
Has it ever occured to Polly that it is the parents' responsibility, if it is anybody's, to prevent or lift their own children out of poverty, or even to think twice about having them?
Until the country stops paying the poor to have kids, the issue of child poverty will not go away until everyone else is so impoverished by the welfare and parasitical social services burden that the poor are joined by the rest of us and so the concept of relative poverty is meaningless. That is sociofascist policy, for sure.
I was going to go through Polly's article, but it contradicts itself, has false dichotomies, other nonsense, but most of all it has illogic and unreason in the face of such obvious evidence. And she is paid for doing that?
