    Screw 'em both. If the parents cannot pay for the child's well-being, the parents shouldn't have the children to begin with. That goes above and beyond any "care" issues.
    If "prospective' parents had to go thru just half what prospective adopting parents had to go thru, there would be fewer children living in deplorable conditions...

    Ah but once again we come back to the "making them not reproduce on their own" issue in the first place. Government mandated birth control (sub-dermal inserts) for both sexes would suck. Could already see the spike in sexually transmitted diseases waiting to happen.




    Oh and I voted for the very first one because the hunting grounds part made me think it was the "comedy" option.

    That's probably true, but you've got a lot of loud-mouths in society who demand anyone who has the ability to breed should be able to breed with no restrictions. Even ignoring the difficulties of stopping people from breeding, the social consequences of even suggesting such a thing would be enough to end any politician's career.

    And so, we're stuck with a lot of really horrible parents churning out the next generation of horrible adults. Welcome to America.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That depends, give that much power to the state over even the most basic intermedaite association of the congenial family and I think we'd all be living in deplorable conditions rather quickly.
