    They do not realize that bringing up kids are an expensive affair .They only think about love making an enjoying .Finally it is the children who suffer .

    Because they don't think about the consequence and always think having a baby is like buying a doll. They really don't considered the child as a separate human entity.

    Because people have sex and they don't think about the consequences. So the tax payers get the burden of taking care of them.

    Irresponsibility in one area tends to bleed into other areas as well.

    We live in a greedy materialistic World, 'can't afford' really means getting your priorities right. From some of those poorer homes might come the next great

    composer, scientist, dancer, actor. At the end of the day we need children,

    children become adults and most will contribute to society even if their parents

    have not succeeded in being social ladder climbers.

    1. Babies come from sex.

    Sex is very seductive.

    While it is theoretically possible to prevent most unwanted pregnancies, that is in an ideal world were there is no human error, human ignorance, human contrariness, human stupidity, or other real life obstacle to that near perfection. 

    2. It's absurd to expect that young people, especially very young people, are going to judge with mature judgment, are going to make the same decisions that older smarter more experienced people make. A bright 14 year old is still only 14. Like everyone else she longs to be love, to have someone to love with all her heart, longs to have something important to do with her life. So when you're 14 having a baby can seem like a great idea, can seem like just what you need in your life during that troubled time.
