    Should child bearing be a controlled privilege?

    Should there be regulations on the right to bear children?

    Perhaps being able to have kids should be looked upon like being a privilage like the right to drive a car?

    Should parent wannabe's be mandated to take a class and pass a test.

    Should there be regulations on being able to qualify to bear children such as marriage, financial stability, minimum age limits etc.

    Should it be imposed that a type birth control is mandatory until certain qualifications are met?

    You really can't regulate a biological process. It would be like regulating peeing. It can't and shouldn't be done.

    (No, I am not comparing babies to pee....)

    We don't let people put marijuana in their bodies. Why not have the same regulations for fetuses? They are, after all, a lot easier to detect and impossible to hide without destroying...

    Seriously, I'd love some kind of regulation on that, maybe to qualify for government assistance, and if your child is neglected due to your lack of license, they can be taken away quickly. There are too many uncaring parents out there.

    Ingesting drugs is not a biological process, as it requires an outside source.
    Also, are you seriously advocating mandatory abortion?

    Why should the government decide who has children and who doesn't? When has it ever shown the kind of judgment necessary to make that decision?

    We already have laws which don't allow abusive parents custody of their children. Anything short of abuse gets iffy and is simply too hard to judge. And making judgments before the child is born is nearly impossible.

    I'm not sure if I would support mandatory abortion yet but I surely would support mandatory prevention to help relieve the welfare stress on most responsible people

    In bold...absolutely. In particular, parents-to-be need to take an intensive 2 week long workshop that teaches them that having children does not give them the right to act like sociopaths towards the rest of society, i.e. bring crying babies to restaurants, movies, etc. (and then absolutely explode however politely you suggest they try to quiet the baby somehow).

    I joke about not liking kids, but in truth I don't think they're so bad. It's the parents who I think are absolute psychopaths.

    I would like it to be taken a step farther and stop this privilage for some that may be deemed not qualified to parent.

    How would you like to enforce this mess? Mandatory sterilization, mandatory abortion, or would you simply prefer to seize the newborns of unqualified parents?

    Think about the criteria you want to establish for whether or not someone is a fit parent, the effect you're going for. Now think about what happens when someone realizes that legislation like this is a powerful tool to use against one's political enemies, or someone like me gets his meathooks into it and uses it for eugenic purposes.

    To put it bluntly, what happens when someone uses these laws against you?
