Although Sam has the mental capacity of a 7-year-old, he has a daughter with a homeless woman who abandons them when they leave the hospital, leaving Sam to raise Lucy on his own.

It's more like an ableist hate speech. They talk a lot about people not being able to become parents or be independent if they're disabled.

Very very vaguely mentioned and discussed, it's mentioned once that Sam got his girlfriend (?) pregnant and Rita, in exasperation, bluntly states that her husband is having sex with other women.
