Children tend to do significantly better with both parents involved in their lives. I am curious what details of London's new policy are...

From the mayor's Press Release:
The project is a fully funded public-private partnership designed under the collaborative change model, a process which directly involves all impacted and interested parties in decision-making. The Abundant Birth Project entered its design phase after receiving a Hellman Collaborative Change Initiative grant from the Hellman Foundation, and has since gone on to also receive an award of $1.1 million from Jack Dorsey’s #startsmall campaign, $200,000 from Genentech, and $200,000 from the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
Are they pre-supposing that Prop 16 will pass? Or maybe this type of targeted program is legal because it uses mostly private funds? Currently the California Constitution reads:
The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.

I've met a lot of Pacific Islander women, and have yet for a single one to impress me with her intelligence. This program is monumentally foolish because every fertile female who sees it will think "Free thousand bucks!" not "Lifetime 6 figure cost of having a child."

Like the bounty on cobras in India, this will result in a massive boost to the underlying issue, and badly worsen whatever problem it intended to solve. It will result in a massive increase of pregnancies by people who can't afford them and don't care, and little else in the big picture.

That's actually completely racist, because government isn't allowed to discriminate based on race. And yet they are openly doing it right there. The moment they do this, they might as well be sued on behalf of everyone who isn't qualified for that based on race.

Bad policy shrouded in fake altruism, resulting in injustice and social debasement? Perfect.

That doesn't cover welfare.

Deans of the University of California law schools just issued this statement.
CRT [Critical Race Theory] is most assuredly not contrary to what we stand for.
