If we could just genetically modify everyone to never want to have sex, that would save a lot more than money.

I'm currently reading a (not very good) science fiction book where procreation is tightly controlled, and it's apparently common for people to simply take a drug that suppresses sex urges, rather than drugs or devices to prevent pregnancy. (But I also get the impression that that drug is only available to the elite.)

Unwanted births cost money? Should be pretty obvious.

Some might claim it's because they're not 'spending' money on welfare babies' food, health, clothing, and shelter.

Unwanted births I don't think we need a pill to actually prevent us from reproducing

No one is forcing anyone to opt into it. There are a ton of health benefits it provides as well...
