    If you create a law making it mandatory for a group of people to do something (wear your seat belt, carry car insurance, etc.) then you have to have a way to regulate it. Policemen can check if you have insurance on your car or if you were or weren't wearing your seat belt. How would government officials determine if you were following the BC law?

    Like I said, when you are on welfare, it is quite easy to track when you apply for services for any additional children. Of course, they CAN have additional children, just not get services for them. It's actually a choice. Continue to receive services and use mandatory birth control, or not.

    Or if someone goes off their mandatory BC and gets pregnant, then take the child.

    Why? What exactly is your problem with that? Do you think it's appropriate to have someone collect services because they cannot care for themselves financially to continue to have MORE children? That is abusive to children.

    If you can't afford the child/children you already have, then you have no business bringing more children into such a situation. That is not a RIGHT nor should it be.

    Hmmm. Interesting that no one wants to answer this question.

    Do you think it is appropriate for someone who cannot afford the child/children that he/she currently has to continue to have MORE children and CONTINUE the cycle of poverty, dependence and neediness?

    Nope, instead it's things like "that's fascist" and run away. Kind of amusing actually.

    Another BIG difference here Minnie is that those who are NOT on welfare are paying for and providing for their OWN. Those who are collecting welfare are not paying for and providing for their own. They are relying on taxpayers for that.

    Where is the logic to allowing people who are collecting public services to continue to have children that they cannot afford to support? It is NOT unreasonable to ask that those people stop procreating while they are receiving services until they can provide for their own.
