Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Didn't comment on your last bit.
It is conservative for at least reasons. First it is about individual rights of the new human. OK you might call that libertarian instead of conservative, but I still support that. Second the church support it and the church in general cares a lot about rights of people who have not the right to vote, so it is consistent with its other positions.
Actually if all aborted babies in Germany would be born instead of being killed, we would have pretty much exactly the number of children which would make each generation the same size. I can't see at all, why this would remove all women from the workplace. Are all in women in France removed from the workplace, where women have this number of babies despite abortion is legal? Are no women in Ireland working, where abortion is illegal and seen as negative by really many people?

But of course a median income should be enough to support a family. After decades of increased productivity, it is rather strange if suddenly people too poor to support a family. If you have read the post I have explicitly stated, that the gov is doing too little for multi child families, but of course people have to be as well sufficient. When my older brother was born, both my parents were students. I got an own room with about ten (1992). Today many see an own room for a child as mandatory, but I don't think I suffered. An own TV I think is even damaging. So what?
