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.
In a perfect world yes, but who is to say those incentivised by having more children on welfare are willing to stop having children and use the birth control?
