Considering that it could make the difference between a woman getting pregnant, having a baby that she can't afford, spending the next 18 years on welfare raising the next generation of welfare parent vs. not getting pregnant, and maybe getting and education and becoming a productive member of society, or at least not giving birth to a future welfare parent, I think it's money well spent.
Here is why there is no incentive to use birth control-
Each child is a raise in income from welfare. This would only work if there was a cap on the number of children welfare will support.
