Mothers on welfare in 24 states don't receive increased benefits if they have additional children. Lawmakers said they wanted to hold down birthrates, but women on welfare say the rule's intent is deeply misguided, and the results are harmful to women and children. On this special Welfare Radio Collaborative edition of Making Contact, we'll explore the "family-cap" and its effect on women's lives, as well as the studies that call it into question. We'll also look at foster care, and how families on welfare are more at risk for losing their children.
