Welfare Fathers

June 02, 1993

In the unlikely event that Robert Norman's suggestion (letter, May 18) to sterilize women who receive welfare for one or more children was advanced purely as a cost-cutting measure, I would like to suggest he turn his attention away from "welfare mothers." As a former eligibility worker, I once had six cases where the same man was the absent father. If Norman is so concerned about our state's financial problems, he should be trying to engender support for the sterilization of men with one or more children receiving welfare.
