No, reproduction is sacrosanct, people have absolute freedom to reproduce and make others raise them
Yes/no, mandatory reproductive control for only the most severely/permanently disabled
Yes/no, offer money for sterilization and/or long-term birth control measures
Yes/no, mandatory birth control and/or sterilization for active severe substance addicts
Yes, require some sort of permit for having children
Sort of, implement two-child policy
Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil.
Surely you could think of some fairly no-brainer examples of people who should not be getting pregnant and having/raising children. Polysubstance addicts, for example?
Truthfully the answer to your question is "I don't know," which was why I introduced a few ideas in the poll, and welcomed more/other ideas.
"The knowledge and prudence of the poor themselves, are absolutely the only means by which any general and permanent improvement in their condition can be effected." - Thomas Malthus
I think we should make it simple and non permanent, people can and do improve their situations. I would make birth control a mandatory requirement to receive government assistance. If you cannot afford to support yourself and existing family you sure do not need to be adding to it.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
Yes society should. How? By stop giving poor people more perks for each new one they pop out be it stepped up EIC or Food Stamps or TANF. Wombs shouldn't be allowed to be ATM machines.
