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.
