wow. that's a lot of children. almost a fetish, you might say. clearly
something is wrong with this person - they arent making healthy or rational
decisions. of course, it might be the boyfriend who has the fetish, trying
to father a nation or something.

a woman who has 12 children, no boyfriend and no job will of course be
looking for someone to come and rescue them.
the proper role of government in this case is to guide people away from
having more children they can care for (i.e. by making contraception freely
available, by making abortion possible, and by having someone keep an eye
out for these kinds of cases as they develop). when all else has failed,
the proper role of government is to look after the children, who have had
no choice about the situation they have been brought into.
