Even though Welfare is not generous or as easy to get as it used to be, it's sill an attraction for some. After all, the nation is not going to let children starve. It's very expensive to take children into Child Protection custody, so some benefits end up getting extended. But for some women, getting pregnant is the way to "get the man". If/when the relationship doesn't work out, they find another man they like and get pregnant again. Some women get trapped in the cycle of finding a highly dysfunctional guy, getting pregnant to try to hold him, and moving to the next very dysfunctional guy when it doesn't work out. They end up with a bunch of children from a lot of different fathers and depending on whatever benefits and child support they can get. Men often feel "tricked" into becoming a father and thus may resent the child.
