17. it is only when they are flying out of the womb at an alarming rate
that 'pop' becomes the verb of choice. One does not 'pop' out one or two babies, but four?

I am not sure about the word 'deserve', but I think society is better served when children are cared for and kept healthy. Still, if their are no costs to having children and reduced costs for raising children, isn't that gonna take away some incentive for controlling their number? An economist would say those costs are externalized from the couple and onto society as a whole. Without altruism or compassion or vision, there is less incentive to reduce costs that are externalized.
