Let me reword that
If a government founded on enlightenment era philosophy no longer considers "baring as many children as you wish" a part of the natural born rights it swears to protect, then I want out.
So you think the whole thing goes against the American constitution, and kind of makes America into a hypocrite country?
There is definitely something important about Men get to be treated as Men. And the image of a man not being able to lead his life as he likes and hold his head up high (because he's being led by the hand, by the government his whole life) is really shocking. It strips away his right to autonomy. And there's something like, if a man leading a life where he is pursuing what he thinks is best, if that isn't respected, then the society is crushing one of the most important things about the human spirit, which is what it's all about, really.
But then contrast that with the image of a horrendously obese young mother on state support, who spends all her money on greasy food, cigarettes, and booze and keeps pumping out kids for the sake of the extra income it will earn her. If a country finds itself burdened with a large portion of the population who aren't taking responsibility for their own lives, who is going to take responsibility for them?
