Poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw

"When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatise those who let people die, not those who struggle to live." ~Sarah Kendzior

And, I would add, that men who refuse to pay their child support are not only guilty of financial abuse against the mothers of their children, but are also committing child abuse.
