Depends on what you mean by subsidize. I don't think it's the
government place to cure the ills of the nation. I'd certainly do
everything I could to help.

Yes. My understanding is that if your in poverty, need help, and are
willing to carry your baby to term, help can be found. BUT, even if
that weren't true it wouldn't change anything. The right decision
doesn't change because it's harder than the wrong one.
Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud.
After a while, you realize the pig is enjoying it.
