Just_A_Guy Posted March 26, 2017 Report Share Posted March 26, 2017 (edited) One of the perennial arguments I see in discussions about the Church's encouragement of having children early, is that this teaching encourages Mormons to inappropriately avail themselves of government services (viz, Medicaid) that should be reserved for "needier" families. This article (http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/24-states-50-babies-born-medicaid) suggests that 31% of Utah births are Medicaid-funded, but interestingly--that's the third lowest rate in the nation. Does anyone else find that surprising? Edited March 26, 2017 by Just_A_Guy Blackmarch 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
