The problem lies in how middle-to-upper class (white) America is able to segregate itself in neighborhoods, schools, and employment from the poor. It creates a vicious, inescapable circle.
    And you want people that are able to make more money and move to nicer areas to what? Not do so and live in a poorer area and send their kids to poor performing schools for some reason? Seriously? Why?

    A great argument for forced sterilization... I would imagine the poor would like that anyway. All the sex and none of the responsibility ...

    See post 616. It is far less extreme and inexpensive to provide birth control.

    But if one cannot afford birth control, BY GOD SOMEONE ELSE SHOULD PAY FOR IT!!!!!

    I think that an at least somewhat reasonable arguments can be made along the lines that children which parents have trouble supporting are more of a burden on society than birth control would be.

    Now, if you disagree with the use of birth control and would rather support the children, that's your option. But the argument remains for those who do not hold that position.

    But with birth control they can forget or choose to not use it... forced sterilization is permanent and secure.

    The permanent part is the issue I have with it.

    Forced sterilization is also about the most totalitarian thing a government can do. I vote for supplying poor people with birth control. I still like democracy.

    I don't care in this case. When the people are having to shell out billions to take care of idiots that should never be having kids in the first place we should do something about it. We do when parents are bad parents, we take their kids. There is a precedent for this. Do you support Child Services taking a child from a supposedly abusive home? If so then prohibiting conception in the first place is a good idea.

    I have no issue with it if people voluntarily have it done.
