    I don't buy into the idea that parents have the right to remove bodily functions of their children.

    The problem people have with it is that he could have just used condoms and not made a big fuss out of the whole scenario. However since he apparently has no idea how to use them, his legal guardians could have just (awkwardly) shown him and he could have just dealt with it himself, rather than taking a case to court and wasting time for the justice system. That's my point anyway.

    The guy has the mind of a 6 yr old. He will always have the mind of a 6 yr old. He has already fathered a child that he has no capacity to care for, and the parents don't want him fathering more, presumably because they could be held responsible for raising the children or paying support for them. This guy wasn't castrated, for crying out loud. He had a vasectomy. Now he can diddle to his little 6 yr old mind's content without fathering a litter of kids that someone has to pay for.

    I do not have a problem with this.

    Seems he is telling the court he doesn't want children, but isn't competent to guarantee that with traditional BC measures.

    I'm not sure what the problem is here?

    Sure they do. Sometimes legal guardians have to make important medical decisions on the behalf of their wards. For example, maybe their child requires an amputation after a bad accident or surgery to remove a tumor or stitches for a laceration.

    It's just foolish to keep a child from receiving a beneficial medical treatment on the grounds that parents don't have some philosophical "right" to do so.

    Yes, medical necessity is a reasonable exception to my statement. Simply removing bodily functions when nothing is wrong is uncalled for and they have no right to do such a thing.

    The only bodily function that was removed is that there will be no sperm in his ejaculate. You're acting like they whacked off his wang, for crying out loud.

    That is a bodily function.
