The key word here is "voluntary."
Do you think it reallyiseugenics?
I am still curious as to what the definition of "low income" is in this case.

Do you think it would be wrong to offeranyamount of money to a person to alter their body in such a way? What if they offered $50,000?On a somewhat related note, how would you feel about offering money for body parts? Would it be wrong to offer a poor person $50,000 for one of their kidneys?
Would anyone here take up the offer of having more children then they would normally if the government gave them money? If so how much money would it take to get you to have more children?
Do you think it reallyiseugenics?It's societal eugenics. You're encouraging certain people to outbreed other people in order to effect societal change.
What we really need are for rich people to buy more lottery tickets, smoke more tobacco, and drink more alcohol, and for poor people to do none of those three things.
Personally I think it's fine. As long as it's voluntary, it's not abusing anyone's personal freedom. It also could help break poverty cycles.
The core assumption isCyclic Poverty, i.e. that poverty engenders poverty.We're not talking about "worth" at all. If you can show statistically that the children of the poor are far more likely to end up in poverty, you've essentially proven much of what was required.
Also, aren't there other ways to reduce and fight poverty beyond having people make a decision for some cash (which they may desperately need at the time) that they may come to regret in later years.
