"Any idiot can have sex with a woman, impregnate her and having a child but it takes a real man to be a compasionate and hard working father and a good role model to his kids"
"Any dumb broad with a good fertility can get knocked up by a man, get pregnant and give birth to children but it takes a real lady to be a nurturing, compassionate and hard working mother".
I think some mothers need to stop bitching and whining about how their life sucks raising children and the world "has to" help them with their struggles along with their sense of entitlement, as if all mothers automatically deserve special treatment just because they gave birth to children. As much as I dislike and have little to no respect for deadbeat, lazy and abusive fathers, I've never met any man with children, who has this sense of entitlement.

A person's worth isn't defined by if they have children or not. Like obviously a "nurturing, compassionate and hard working" parent is preferable to one who is not. No one is going to disagree with that!
Furthermore it takes a LOT of work and support to raise children. Why do you think there more single mothers on social programs than any other demographic? Abortions are not easy to get and there are more and more organizations working to stop women from being able to access them at all. Child care often costs more than one person can make on minimum wage. There are so many costs to children.
It's also cheaper to provide social support for parents regardless of their status. A successful law abiding adult is more likely to go to college and therefor more likely to achieve a higher income which generates more tax revenue. We need to stop trying to constantly punish people for being poor like it's some sort of moral failing and we need to stop making sexist generalizations.
If we hate "that" type of people so much, why aren't we doing more to help their children who did *not* choose their parents or life situation out of it? Why aren't we saying, "yeah your dad ran out on your mom but we'll still make sure you get enough to eat and can read so you have a better chance of succeeding in school"
Head Start is consistently one of the biggest determiners of success in low income students, but also one that gets cut most often. You want these people to do better, but you want to strip them of the most effective tools at their disposal.1
