Well I think you have a point about how ill-advised it might be economically speaking for some people in dire poverty to have too many children (or even any, for that matter) but, then again,  people do raise themselves out of poverty,  children - when they grow up - can help to relieve the poverty of their families, or they have the choice of doing that or not,  the conditions in which people in poverty live can also vary widely and improve even if their designation as being "in poverty" (which is relative to national wealth data) remains.
Young people in poverty at least have the potential to change their circumstances, live in a different place, associate with different people, and get away from their relatives and parents (if necessary) which are options not available to a young adult born in a spaceship with no destination (at least for generations to come).
But I accept you have a point and that certain degrees of poverty in certain circumstances might be analogous with incarceration and the realities of their employment opportunities might be analogous with forced labour.
