    Ah, didn't think about what should happen to the parents. I think the parents should also face criminal charges... They should ONLY be able to keep their first child though and not get to pick between the two. Also, the criminal charges should not be jail time seeing as how that would deprive to children their parents.
    Can't tell if you're being genuine or not, either way I believe your a ignorant fool.

    Re: Population Control

    Using coercive means to lower fertility rates will likely cause more problems than solutions and is unnecessary in lowering birth rates. Brazil has lowered its birthrate dramatically by developing its economy. Children go from useful capital that can help till the fields to expensive luxuries. Iran lowered its birthrates from over six to less than two in a little over a decade by opening up access to contraceptives. America's replacement rate is just above 2.1, not something to worry about.

    Mandating lower birthrates will also screw up the demographics of a country. China's population is already graying. The shrinking labor force will no doubt slow growth in the country, possibly before the country becomes high-income. The number of children that people have is a very personal decision, and government has no place in it.

    you should be able to have as many children that you can afford to properly raise. sadly, the most able parents don't tend to breed at the rates that the least competent do. We need to dis-incentivize the least able from breeding like rabbits

    You really are all for class warfare, aren't you?
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    I am for responsible people having children and irresponsible people not subjecting children to unfit parents. You liberals want the least able to breed like rabbits because such people end up being dem constituents and/or justify more of the welfare state

    do you think its good for 19 year old inner city girls to have 4 children by three different fathers?

    Nope, do you think it is okay for society in general to breed like rabbits? So, don't restrict the rights of some unless you want to restrict the rights of all. If you want to restrict the rights of some then you can make all of the stereotypical comments you want and no one will respond. You will know why...

    I don't think those who cannot pay for their own existence should be engaging in deliberate behavior that imposes even MORE costs on others.

    You seem to think that someone on the dole has the absolute right to spawn like a carp and spew out several kids that all cost the taxpayer thousands upon thousands of dollars each per year

    How is that so? The left has always supported education and prevention as well as the right to choose.

    Of course not, what's your alternative? Let them dumpster dive? Law of the Jungle?

    You still think it is okay to stereotype.
