Re "Bill would start first diaper aid" (Page A1, Aug. 2): Kudos to the myriad letters pointing out the flaws with this bill. It's a fact that bringing a child into this world is costly. It's a choice you make, so you should provide for him or her. Don't expect taxpayers to assist in purchasing disposable diapers for you.

Are you aware of what these disposable diapers are doing to our environment? I've raised three children using cloth diapers. It was laundered and recycled after they're no longer needed: using them as burpers and cleaning cloths with my grandkids.

Taxpayers have done their share to provide for the current generation that relies heavily on taxpayers' money to assist with welfare needs. Is there ever an end to freebies? -- Fay Gee, Sacramento
