Michael: As I understand it: Child credit is restricted to two children, but if a woman has a child as the result of rape (Non consensual sex) she will get credit for that child too. In order to get the extra credit she has to report or substantiate the claim of rape. I don't see what the problem is in what seems a perfectly reasonable idea. Do those against it suggest that people who just go on having children they cant support can go on claiming the children are the result of a criminal assault without reporting or substantiating the claim?
