When my wife headed a social service agency a number of years ago, she told me that she had several mothers walk in with children and then just leave them. This is not during a SHTF scenario, it’s happening today. As the morals of our country continue to slide into the dumpster, there are mothers out there today that would do it without a second thought. Now add to that the struggles of whatever SHTF scenario you would select, and this will become a very real situation that we should thoughtfully consider.
Now add to that mix, the very real possibility that not everyone in your group, or even your family will agree.
