Reproduction control always worsens society in every single instance it has ever been tried. People will just not allow themselves to be controlled like that, and what is in the interest of the government is often not in the interest of the people.
First there is a couple of people who decide (or do not) to have their chromosomes united. Broader than this is governmental control over who should have their chromosomes united and who should not, thereby filtering a certain breed of people. Broader than this image is vacuum, space, and undetermined chaos, that can be best dealt with variety of people living on earth.
This variety cannot be assured from governmental control filter. If we only are to have intellectual analysts and idealists people we cannot operate and survive for there are things that such people may hesitate to do, and thus we may fall behind in responding to that chaos (i.e., unpredictable things that may happen and the majority would hesitate to respond due to not having the necessary material).
Thus I think the snake starts eating it's tail and we get back to score 1. People decide randomly whether to have their chromosomes united or not. This produces variety and greater odds of having the right person on the right situation to respond to chaos in the future.
She had three children, none of which she kept, where should we draw the line between reproductive rights and what's best for potential children?
We're all in favor of full reproductive rights, but not the responsibilities that go with it.
That's incredibly selfish and inhumane.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
As much as I think the plot of the movie Idiocracy (see it you haven't) is becoming reality, the idea of licensing procreation is not possible without completely surrendering any personal soveriegnty we may have.
I know who should be able to have kids and who shouldn't, so if you want to make me the decider, I'll be happy to do it, but no one else.
I'll make sure only the "right people" have children.
How's that sound?
No. As much as I would not mind it, lol. It goes against everything this country is supposed to stand for. Maybe in Ancient Rome or WWII Nazi Germany. No way should this kind of fascist thinking be allowed here.

I would love to have that realistically possible - because I believe the main source of suffering in this world is from lousy parents causing emotional trauma to their children (many times, unseen).
But it is not realistic without taking away so much freedom that is would be ridiculous.
My solution is to stop rewarding people who have more children then they can afford - as poverty is probably the single biggest cause of the above mentioned abuse.
If people need food/shelter - give it to them. But only the minimum thyough government flop houses and soup kitchens. NEVER any money.
And provide full medical/dental care to all children that need it...but NOTHING except emergency medical/dental to these pathetic parents.
I would insist that these useless parents should have to have their pictures put on the web everytime they bring their children to a government shelter. But many of these losers probably would just let their kids starve rather then be face embarrassment.
Finally, society has to stop encouraging people to have children.
It should be considered a priviledge to have a child - not a right.
Something that only a few are qualified to undertake.
This nonsense that people just assume that the vast majority of people are good parents is completely wrong.
By the law of averages, 1/3 will be good at it, 1/3 will be adequate and 1/3 will suck at it.
