I want your opinion.

Ok...I heard a theory the other day about limiting human reproduction. Should the U.S govt limit who can and can't have kids.

RULES:

1. Be polite
2. Do not think about the practicality of it. Only in principle. only if it was able to be done.

    Although I agree with the saying "can't feed em' don't breed em'' The government telling people who can and can't have kids is communist as hell. Therefore I am against it on that general principle.

    Yeah as much as I believe that there are some people who just shouldn't have kids it would just be wrong to limit who can have them.

    Some people are not even capable of taking care of a kid because of their current living conditions. There are parents who would cook meth WITH their babies or young children in the room with them. It's disgusting how some people ignore and abuse them. These people who cook meth are more than capable of taking care of their kids, they're just too pathetic that they need a fix before they even think about their kid. By then, they're too high to even care about the kid. Then there are the people who have kids and abandon their child right after or shortly before birth. If you're going to abandon a child, why even have it in the first place. Then there are the people who simply are incapable of taking care of their children. They at least care about their children, but they either don't know how or simply can't afford it.

    But what do they do if a lady is having twins? Don't they abort.

    I ran out of time. But even if the government DID limit the amount of children, how are they going to enforce it? Would they come into your house and take your new child away, or take it away at the hospital? I don't think the government is even capable of putting such a law into effect and keeping it enforced. There is simply no ethical way of doing so.

    Well you didn't read the post. This is not about the practicality of the issue.

    I think there should be some sort of control over reproduction because quite frankly, some people (like Kradon666 said) just are not capable of taking care of the child, either through personality faults or something like money. I'm pro-abortion as well because I just dont think this world needs any more kids. eventually we're just going to run out of resources and then we're all fucked

    But if you can't take care of a kid you should have the responsability to not have sex or use a condom, birth control , tubes tied, or the guy getting snipped. If they do make a kid why should the kid be punished by death?

    I don't think it's right to stop people having kids, and it's nearly impossible to do so. However if someone fell pregnant and they clearly were not suitable to raise a child (drug addict, etc) then they should be given the option of abortion or giving up their child for adoption after birth. If someone cannot bring their child up safely then they do not deserve that child. It's not fair on the little shits xD

    I personally do not like governments of any sort. I am for anarchism. I say that the government telling people they can not have children is ridiculous. People who choose to have a child should have to take care of them and feed them and if they can not they will lose the child (much like what we have now). Telling people they can not have children is not their business and it breaks the natural right, the pursuit of happiness.

    Oh i am also pro-choice but you should only be able to have say 2 abortions in your lifetime if you have more then that your a whore.

    Let's not get into abortion until it's made a new topic, eh? : P.

    I think no limits should be imposed, but maybe some government incentive should exist to have only one or two children... because the problem of overpopulation is going to smack in the face real soon. It would be nice to cut it off at the knees.

    But the government specifically regulating reproduction is horrid. Everyone has the right to their own body and children.

    Nice point. I just get scared when see some people and think that they are going to have kids some day. C'mon you have to know some people that you hope they don't have children.

    Yes, definitely. Many deleterious genes would be nice to cease... but I don't support any governmental obligation to cease them : ).

    Of course. Just so you know I was just trying to play devils advocate for most of my points.

    But it would be nice if some people could not have kids becuase well.........they are scum in our society or other assorted ailments but I would be appaled by any real legislation made by congress. In my opinion more govt control is bad. Sorry logos.

    True, but people are rarely ever responsible enoughto keep their legs closed, you know? And the way I see it is that it wouldn't really be punishment because I (personally) would rather not see a child born at all than seeing them suffer through life

    But when you said maybe there should be govt. incentives to only have one or two kids I thought at first someone hacked your profile. I have never agreed with you more on something. :)

    Yes, they should be able to have kids. But if they can't provide for them, they should have to put them up for adoption. NOT MURDER THEM THROUGH ABORTION. There are so many parents wanting to adopt, it's idiotic to abort.
