      If national baby bonuses send a message and that message gets results,
      then municipal contraception funding can send the opposite message and
      that message can get results too.
      Please read my petitions advocating municipal environmental
      contraception funding, which is increasingly politically realistic due
      to The Big Sort in more and more towns, and helps women's right's,
      quality of life, and school taxes as well as being at least 5 times more
      cost-effective than any other environmental effort.

      The prochoice and contraception movements are placing too high a priority
      on defensive actions in the red states when we should be going on the
      offensive, the side of "change", in the blue states, and cities. The
      worst places will get even worse no matter what we do, but the unrealized
      political potential, the low hanging fruit, is in making the best places
      even better. This opportunity is being caused by The Big Sort.

      Demographers disagree about whether government-funded initiatives
      influence birthrates. However, a 2008 report from the Australian
      Productivity Commission found that government handouts - such as the
      baby bonus, or family tax benefits that can be awarded up to a child's
      teenage years - "had only a very modest effect" on the rise in fertility
      rates, the Sydney Morning Herald reported at that time.

      The value of the bonus may be more symbolic than financial, since
      supporting children to college age could cost hundreds of thousands of
      dollars.

      The Baby Bonus "does contribute to the idea that parents feel
      supported", Ms Jessica Brown, a policy analyst at the Centre for
      Independent Studies, told Weekend Today. "Government payments to
      families do not necessarily encourage them to have children in a
      financial sense, but contribute to the idea that families are valuable
      and worthwhile."
