Supporting The Family Cash Incentivized Larcs Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives

Many children are being born without the benefit of married parents. Remedy? Family studies economist Isabel V. Sawhill extols highly reliable LARCs (long-acting reversible contraceptives) as being pro-children, pro-life, pro-marriage, and pro-income-equality. Accordingly, why not have the federal government pay female participants enough to make implanted LARCs the norm? Despite its public interest virtures, religious leaders would probably voice opposition to such a policy, construing it as a “license to fornicate.” This paper presents a secondary cash incentive that would hopefully neutralize that opposition.
