In light of the recent deaths of two babies there are calls tonot give benefits to those already recieving benefits if they have further children. With hte idea of encouraging them to not have children.

Simply, in the world there are short term and long term thinkers. Short term thinkers have babies regardless of incentives, they also tend to be poor (both a cause and an effect).

As a result they respond poorly to certain types of incentives. Your chances of teaching them to think far into the future at a late stage in life are damn near zero so strategies based on that are deeply flawed.
