The high cost of infertility
A pregnancy and the resulting childbirth is usually not cheap. For couples who are having difficulty conceiving, the cost of the latest fertility treatments comes with a big price tag.

Adoption can be just as expensive as fertility treatments. My husband and I would love to have a child, either biological or adopted, but can't. We are financially stable enough to raise a child with no problem, but we can't aford 10+ K for treaments or adoptions straight out of pocket. And tax exemptions and rebates don't really help if you can't aford the out of pocket expenses to begin with. And I would posit that anybody who would say "sut up and accept it" has probably never had to deal with infertility in any form.

Unless you are an Illegal Immigrant the it FREE!
Similar story as Tucker418. I was born in 1953. Mom and I stayed in the hospital for 5 days and the total was $125. Dad paid cash. The receipt looks like a Guest Check!
This is one of the reasons why I decided to have a child from the get go .
You know having a child is a choice and some people like myself choose to not have children just , because we do not want any . If you have a problem with my choice then please I would love to hear what kind of argument you have against me but just so you know having a child is not required . You can live a normal happy life without children and not be hurting anyone else in anyone way .
as the saying goes THERE'S OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!!!! STUPID ISN'T IT?? I think people should first be stopped at the hospital's cashier window.....can't pay or can't produce a valid insurance card -SORRY CAN'T COME IN- we are burdened enough as it is!!!!!!!
